ASUS ZenBook is lighter, slimmer and faster than other notebooks in its class to give you the unmatched power and all-day portability you need to conquer your day. And when other glossy notebooks show more glare than what’s actually on the screen, ASUS ZenBook always shines through even the sunniest days thanks to the 13-inch matte anti-glare wide-angle IPS display. Featuring the new Intel Core M processor, do more with faster speeds and enhanced efficiency that automatically adjusts performance to what you’re doing. Add to that the incredible responsiveness of the Solid State Drive (SSD), everything from startup to loading demanding programs happens in a flash. And like the silent power of an electric sports car, the fanless processor and SSD give you all the power you want–without any of the noise.
We also publish a list of the world’s top eBay sellers. Amazon is a very different beast to eBay, and there are a few special caveats to be aware of. I’ll mention the most important ones along the way, and spell them all out in detail at end.
It used to be a real mark of distinction to hit the best-seller lists–because there were fewer lists and fewer authors (and before ebooks, pricing across books was pretty universal as well). The New York Times list has been the most prestigious, published in one form or another since 1931. By 1942, a national list made its debut, compiled according to “reports from leading booksellers in 22 cities.” By the mid-2000s, over 4,000 bookstores were polled each week to determine who deserved to be on the list. The Wall Street Journal list, which has been around since 2009, is based on Nielsen Bookscan and tends to focus on a smaller number of categories. The USA Today list is also a prestigious but more of a catch-all list.
Without sales numbers we have to take these claims with a grain of salt, but it’s a safe bet a lot of Chromebooks were sold over the holidays. HP should be glad to see one of its Chromebooks hit the top seller list, but none of its low-cost Stream laptops with Windows made the top three.
One of the most common decisions that people have been needing to make when considering laptops of this caliber is whether to go with the MacBook Air or the MacBook Pro. There isn’t a “correct” answer to this question, as each one offers something that the other does not. But with a solid state drive, amazing screen, long battery life and snappy processor, the MacBook Air is going to make a lot of people very happy.

Amazon won’t announce the best-selling product of 2017 until early next year, but for now investors can take note that the past two years Amazon’s products outsold everything else, and this year its electronics are easily topping the list again. That’s a strong signal of Amazon’s ability to continually keep customers tied to its ecosystem.
If the DVD drive isn’t enough to convince you, perhaps its blazing fast performance will be. The benefits posed by the Acer Aspire E5-553 shouldn’t be taken lightly, nor should its record-low $434 cost.View Deal
Let me just point out, from personal experience, that the figures posted by Regan on how many sales we can expect a book to be achieving, depending on its overall sales rank are only good for amazon.com or english titles. Smaller markets (for instance french language books, or italian language books like mine) will have much lower sales for a certain ranking
As to which products moved the needle, Amazon’s Echo Dot and the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote were the best selling products across every category, an impressive feat to say the least. Predictably, Amazon didn’t release any specific sales figures, only noting that Echo Dot sales ranged in the millions. It’s also worth noting that Fire TV Stick sales increased by more than 100% year over year.
As you can see, this section of Amazon’s website is almost a department unto itself. Promotions are given their own unique links and listing pages. The part I’d like to draw your attention to is the Coupons link, highlighted in the blue box above. This page takes you to a list of Amazon’s most popular Vendor Powered Coupons (VPC) in a variety of categories. See the page for yourself below:
Quick Note: For some reason, removing the ?url=search-alias returns a different set of search results… Not sure why, but either way make sure you keep that in if you want to make it look like someone searched for that keyword from Amazon.
I’m aware that its quite easy to pick a category and become a best seller in it. I see Internet Marketers do it all the time for positioning so I wanted to get the UK topspot as a way of feeling justified in promoting myself as a Best Seller.
This is my method for buying on Amazon (eBay in disguise), eBay, Abes: ask questions before sale about packing, when product will really be sent, do they provide tracking, have they described condition, what is their feedback like (go back and see how many people are dissatisfied each day for a month or so…tedious, but if you have people every day saying you screwed up, something’s wrong), do they respond to emails and do they answer the questions asked?
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.
Those with a Kindle account frequently take advantage of downloading free e-books. Why do we mention this? Because when it comes to the best sellers rank, Amazon does not differentiate between free and not-free books.
So every time a customer checks out a product, they have a section directly underneath the product description showing related products that make nice complements to the product currently being considered.
In the span of one day, Michael Wolff’s bombshell book about President Donald Trump and his administration, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, moved 48,448 positions up on Amazon’s best-seller list to reach the no. 1 spot. As of 10:00 a.m. EST on Thursday, it has retained its status. (The book is still in pre-order stages; it will be released on Jan. 9.)
There are a couple other keyword strings to be aware of. You may have to do some experimenting one your own to figure out specific URL string combinations that delivers the page you want to see, but knowing these queries will give you a great starting point:

My personal preference of all of the computers in this article is the MacBook Air. I am generally a PC guy, and am writing this review on a Windws 7 PC. But having used the MacBook Air that has been firmly planted near the top of Amazon’s best-seller list for several months, I can see why it is so popular. It just feels like a great computer, and I really don’t have anything bad to say about it. If you are not severely attached to Windows, it is definitely something you should consider checking out.
