A novel by the internationally celebrated author Arundhati Roy, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, was selected as #1 book. It’s the intricate and graceful story of lives touched by magic, broken by tragedy, and mended with love.
The best-selling business, industrial and scientific supplies in the U.S. included the First Aid Only All-Purpose First Aid Essentials Kit, Rubbermaid Commercial Stainless Steel Oven Monitoring Thermometer and TOPGREENER TU2154A High Speed USB Charger Outlet.
My number that night was a little under 450,000, which — even as a novice — I had to assume wasn’t quite Fifty Shades of Grey status yet. But presumably the ranking would go up — or down, as the case may be — when the novel actually went on sale. Either way, I did a little research into how the rating system works and learned that very little concrete information is available.
With this in mind, let’s take a look at what we should understand by this ranking. As mentioned above, this Bestsellers Rank is available for most products available on Amazon, but I’ll explain this topic mainly using books as a case in point.
Thank you so much for this. I will also share your information with our authors. We are book publishers. Question: What about these techniques via Amazon Advantage? Do all of the strategies apply there?

Current book bestsellers – every major category in the Amazon store comes with the list of the bestselling items. The lists get updated a few times a day, so they are a good tool to check out which books are currently the hottest. The lists, both for print and Kindle books, are split into genres and subcategories, down to the lowest level.
However, you can manually perform keyword research for Amazon. (1) Identify a popular root keyword in Google’s Keyword Planner, then (2) enter that keyword into Amazon’s search bar followed by a letter to (3) get Search Suggestions for that keyword.
“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.
In a press release pushed out on December 26, to highlight its successes during the festive period, Amazon says it saw a big increase in the number of Prime trials being taken, a big bump in the number of people shopping from its mobile apps and, to sweeten the acerbic reception that greeted its ill-fated Fire Phone, big sales for its own-brand TV streaming devices.
Good one Will Mitchell! Really liked the reading. I am working for a company whose main domain is optimizing for Amazon. This post will prove to be very helpful for me. Thanks a lot for sharing such a helpful & good read.
(Publisher: Ubisoft) — Ubisoft described “Wildlands” as the biggest open-world game it has ever made. And fans quickly embraced it. Players join a special operations unit and use real-world military weapons against enemies in a variety of environments, ranging from dense forests to salt flats. The multiplayer component, which allowed players to play cooperatively, was especially popular. Perhaps most impressive about the game’s top sales ranking, though, is the fact that it didn’t hit shelves until March 7 of this year.
“The Anker charger is small and comes with a carrying case. This charger charges my phone quickly, about 2 hours and my phone is fully charged. The only negative with this charger is that it can only charge my phone one time, I really wish I could get two charges out of it.” – Aaron J. Garcia, Amazon reviewer
(Publisher: Activision Blizzard) — “Infinite Warfare” was a troubled “Call of Duty” title from the moment it made its debut, with fans blasting the debut trailer for deviating too far from the franchise’s roots. That reaction has seemingly impacted catalog sales. Typically, the previous year’s “COD” game is at or near the top of the midyear sales list. This year it’s near the bottom. Activision hopes this year’s “Call of Duty: WWII” gets a warmer reaction.

As mentioned, all that counts is the number of sales relative to other products within the same category. Amazon splits ‘paid’ and ‘free’ books into separate categories, so these act as sub-sub categories, in turn having their own bestsellers rank, which seems to be ranked using the same (or very similar) algorithm to paid bestseller ranks.
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.
(Publisher: Sony) — Sony’s PlayStation 4-exclusive open-world action/role-playing game had one of the best debuts of any new franchise in the company’s history. Sony says the game sold 3.4 million units worldwide, virtually guaranteeing that Aloy, the hunter/archer living in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by robots, will get a sequel.
Since customer reviews obviously affect sales, I guess that my question has to do with Sales Rank, so here it is: if a review is posted on my sales page in one Amazon store (e.g. UK or, say, Italy) will it automatically appear on all other Amazon sales pages for book, including Amazon.com?
When it comes to ranking highly on the Amazon Bestsellers lists, as the ranks are based hourly (or daily if the above information is correct), then a quick spike in sales due to a successful marketing campaign, followed by a lull in sales a couple of days later will only serve to see the product’s rankings quickly plummet. It’s far better to space out a product launch over a period of week, so Amazon can collect consistent historical data to make predictions on future sales. This will thereby make it for you to break into higher spots on the ranking table in future.
Even though the image of the product listing above says that there are other offers “from $15.65”, closer inspection of the listings reveals that those cheaper options are actually more expensive once you take shipping into account.

Lower down on the book seller’s list are the dystopian classics “The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood, “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley, “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, and “Animal Farm,” also by Orwell. Trump’s “The Art of the Deal” is also on the list, at #12 on Saturday afternoon.

The company’s research shows that every day since the start of November, e-commerce has posted online sales of over $1 billion, which has never happened before.
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.

Thanks for the great comments, Ed! It’s difficult to say just how useful this tanking actually is- whether it’s more for vanity, or whether it actually has some real bearing on revenue and sales etc, but it’s interesting to look at it in more detail though 🙂
