Also known as ‘sales rank’, Amazon ranks products on an hourly basis according to how much time has elapsed since one was last sold. So if an item has just been sold, it’ll have a pretty high ranking, as opposed to something that’s been languishing for that whole hour.
Great article ! One question : did anyone did have problem because of super URL ? In my view is possibile that AMZ use this as honeypot and it will at some point delete all user accounts that used this ?
I suspected that I was not alone in my obsession. There are even sites like Sales Rank Express and Novel Rank that aim to cull tracking for authors, domestically and internationally. So, I reached out to two novelist buddies with new books out and asked about their relationship to the ranking system. Was I the only crazy one? “In one instance, I knew that 10 copies of [my book] were going to be purchased on Amazon,” explains Jennifer Miller, author of debut novel The Year of The Gadfly (out since May 8). “Out of curiosity, I checked the ranking before and after the sale. To my surprise, the ranking temporarily got worse. It’s a mystery!” She also reports fluctuations in one day from 100,000 to 7,000 and says that, according to her publisher, early sales information suggests that the book is selling best at independent bookstores. Wait, independent bookstores actually sell books? I thought they were a dying breed, almost as elusive as unicorns? Turns out that they still play an important role, thank goodness.
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’.
Another benefit on these top selling lists is that you can identify the top selling brands. This is helpful for SEO research as well as creating pages/posts via auto-blog where you enter keywords into the software/app/plug-in.

That leaves 54% doing some level of trade across Amazon’s European marketplaces using a unified account. But are they doing it successfully? Well, 71% of the cross-border traders gained 10% or more of their feedback from countries outside their biggest marketplace (up from 59% last year). And 33% got more than half of their feedback away from their main market, almost double the figure of 18% last year. So while there aren’t many more sellers selling internationally across Europe, those who are have become even more active over the last year.

We may live in a mobile-obsessed world, but it turns out the best-selling consumer-electronics gadget on Amazon isn’t made by Apple or Samsung. Neither is it a Kindle—which is kind of shocking, given that Amazon promotes its own tablets and e-readers right on its own home page.
