Oh, and then there are the ones who claim to have U.S. warehouses and even state they send from such and such a state…many of these are located overseas and your purchase takes up to three months to get.
The strage thing happened within 72 hours of announcing the pre launch. I hit the #1 spot in 5 categories, overtaking books from Celebreties in the UK such as lord sugar. I took a screenshot posted his own catchphrase “I’m Sorry Lord Sugar, Your’re Fired” with me at #1 and him at #2.
We can’t stress enough to avoid making the mistake so many buyers have of placing too much importance on just the best sellers rank. It’s tempting to get caught up in the heady rush of seeing items fly off the shelves and your products have a small rank number, but there’s so much more involved than that.
Amazon has various ways of ranking products, but one of the least understood seems to be the Amazon Bestsellers Rank (also known simply as ‘Sales Rank’). This post will hopefully help you understand , as a customer, which books are selling well in a certain topic, and as a seller, which products may be your main competitors.

YouTube saw record traffic and mobile growth this year. It gets 3 billion views per day, and video uploads have doubled since last year.
If you want a premium alternative, we’ve heard good things about MerchantWords (not an affiliate link), but keep in mind that these types of services don’t get their data from Amazon… At least not fully. They typically use a system that pulls data from major search engines, identifies matching queries in Amazon, and then use an algorithm to combine that data and give you estimated traffic numbers. Still may be worth checking out for some.

There’s probably a lot of variance in the % of buyers who leave seller feedback. Amazon’s own statistic of 10%-20% does feel high though. I’m hoping to get data on it sometime and might be interesting to see if it varies by country, category etc.
The best-selling automotive products in the U.S. included the Dark Seasonal Snow & Ice Car Scraper, the NOCO Genius Boost Plus GB40 1000 Amp 12V UltraSafe Lithium Jump Starter and the STANLEY J5C09 Jump Starter.
Some high-feedback sellers are not present in Amazon’s seller directory, and the directory is not available at all for some media categories in some countries. Media covers books, DVDs and Blu-rays, music, PC and video games, and software. To address that, we have supplemented information from the seller directory with data on sellers who offer any of Amazon’s best selling products.
“At a moment when instability seems to be the only constant in American politics, ‘It Can’t Happen Here’ offers an alluring (if terrifying) certainty: It can happen here, and what comes next will be even ghastlier than you expect,” Gage said.
