But it’s begun to feel a bit like a losing battle. Because those authors are everywhere these days. The title of my fake book was “Putting My Foot Down” for a reason: I’ve become utterly exhausted with phony “authors” and the scam artists and charlatans who conspire with these folks–the cottage industry that has built up around them, selling courses, instructions and hacks. A quick Google search returns dozens of “bestselling books,” courses, packages, schools, secrets, summits, and webinars teaching you how to become a “bestselling author”. Hell, this guy even promises to show you how to be a bestselling author “Even if You Have No Book Ideas, Writing Skills, or Any Clue Where To Start” in a “5 Phase Formula.”
For example, we sell in multiple product categories and find that we receive proportionally more feedback in some categories. The dollar amount of the transaction also has a correlation to likelihood of feedback. Additionally, some items lend themselves to buying multiples while others do not. If a customer buys 5 units in one transaction, that will still lead to a maximum of one feedback.
Another problem with some of the brands is that they don’t have much reach outside Amazon. These brands depending on Amazon search optimisation and Amazon ads are going to add essence to this problem as they would way to out-rank them. As soon as the marketplace banned incentivized reviews, it became tougher for the brands to bootstrap without putting considerable efforts into it. But, this would promise us to create better, as well as stronger brands in the near future.
The MacBook Pro is, simply put, a beautiful computer. It has incredible performance, a perfect build and design, yet still delivers 7 hours of battery life. The entry level version falls into this pricing category but, if you are flexible on price and are looking for more storage or performance, you have the option of upgrading a few of the internal components. If you haven’t already done so, I recommend checking this computer out on Amazon.
As the Amazon Bestsellers Rank is relative to other products in a category, an increase in sales alone isn’t enough to increase rankings. To increase the Bestsellers Rank, your product must sell more units than other products in your category. This means that if there’s a sudden influx in overall sales in Juicing Machines, and everyone in that category starts to sell more products, the sellers may not see jumps in their Bestsellers Rank, as they might have hoped.

There’s some hefty grunt under the shell of this HP Laptop 15 and there are some great prices available as well. Even with the Intel Pentium processor and 4GB of RAM to start, this laptop will whip through pretty much any day-to-day activity you can throw at it without the juddering performance of even cheaper laptops. Hell, it’ll even have a decent crack at playing a few of the less demanding games out there if you equip it with an Intel Core processor.
If you’re looking for an engrossing adventure in a post-apocalyptic world, Horizon Zero Dawn is for you. The story is engrossing, the gameplay outstanding, and the visuals gorgeous. Probably the best PlayStation 4 game of the year.

With 2019 now officially here, it’s time to take a look back at last year to see what was and wasn’t so good. The folks over at Amazon have done just that, compiling lists of what sold best on their site throughout the year, and in the video game department, you’ll see a lot of familiar faces.
As you can probably guess, some sellers have developed a blackhat form of ASIN piggybacking. Basically, it involves finding knockoffs of popular products and listing them with the same ASIN as their non-knockoff counterparts.
Amazon has unified its European marketplaces in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy. That means a single seller account be used to sell on all of those marketplaces. Feedback is tied to a single seller ID for sellers using unified accounts, so it’s possible to report on the proportion of feedback they have gained from each European marketplace. You can see that breakdown in the table below.

I didn’t write this to make my foot famous. I wrote this post because I’m tired of vanity titles and success without quality. I also wanted to show how simple it is to call yourself a best-selling author, in the hopes that people buying books become more discerning customers. Remember, if I can make my foot a “bestselling author” for under 3 dollars and a few minutes of work, you should take any person presenting themselves as such with a grain of salt.

I guess it’s not a new concept to be fascinated by things we don’t understand or mysteries we can’t solve; why else would we keep theorizing about what the afterlife holds or about the Kennedy assassination?
Midyear sales figures for the video game industry show two things — the staying power of hot holiday sellers and which spring releases have found a loyal audience. While the positions shift (and many titles fall off the charts) once the holiday months arrive, they’re a good barometer of publisher health.

“If you are in the market for a little tablet and have prime, you have to decide between this Fire 6 or the 7 inch HDX for twice the cost. This 6 inch adds the rear camera and most of the performance while being smaller, lighter at half the price.” – William Hardin, Amazon reviewer

According to Amazon, the Bestsellers Rank is calculated hourly, but sometimes there is a lag between an increase in sales, and an improvement in a ranking. This lag is usually no more than 2 or 3 hours, but there is some debate over exactly how many product rankings are calculated hourly. This article on WebProNews, mentions that, in the books category, only the top 10,000 books are calculated hourly, whereas books with a ranking of 10,000+ are calculated once per day with ‘current projections as well as historic sales information play[ing] a key role in calculations’.
