Has there ever been a better time to be a gamer? 2017 was an incredible year for the video game industry, almost across the board. Do you even remember the kind of shape Nintendo was in this time last year? Things were looking very, very bad on the back of the company’s enormous Wii U flop, and now Nintendo makes the hottest video game console on the planet. Of course, PlayStation and Xbox fans had plenty to enjoy in 2017 as well, as some of the best games in recent history were released last year. Amazon just shared its list of the best-selling video games of 2017 across all platforms — have you played them all? Check out the full list at this link, or you can see the top 10 best-selling games below.
Is there a way to rank top US sellers within each marketplace – UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, India, Japan and China? I am willing to query on my own, I just do not know where to start. Thanks!
Keep in mind, this isn’t 100% proven to work, but everything we know about Amazon’s ranking algorithm tells us it should. Plus, the absolute worst-case scenario is that you’re driving extra sales to one of your products… Amazon isn’t like Google where they’ll punish you for trying to optimize for their search engine.
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.
It is relatively pricey, but this Inspiron absolutely nails it when it comes to value, especially for hardcore gamers. This is among the strongest laptops housing Nvidia’s new, low-end GTX 1050 graphics chips. The latest Intel Core series processors, full HD displays and tons of storage options make the Inspiron 15 Gaming a fine solution for PC gamers on a budget.
Here are the top 500 sellers on the Amazon.com marketplace. The feedback shown is only that received from sales on the US marketplace. The feedback data will vary from that in the global list above, for merchants selling to other North American marketplaces using a unified account.
Important – For #3 to work you really need to offer a standout deal. The penny-pinching you can get away with on Amazon probably won’t be enough to get you featured on the most popular Daily Deals sites.
As of this afternoon, Amazon says that its “Techies” category on the site was one of the most shopped, along with “Home Chefs” and “For the Home.” In the Techies section, Amazon is heavily promoting its own hardware — including Echo devices, Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers — as well as bundles like the Echo Dot/Philips Hue Starter Kit, for example, among others.
The winner is … Chromecast, the tiny Google device that streams video and music to a TV. Chromecast has topped several of Amazon’s bestseller lists—including the biggie, its list of all electronics—for weeks now, displacing a Kindle model as sales leader and leapfrogging ahead of both Apple TV and the Roku.
Electric toothbrushes are one thing all of us have likely considered getting or have somewhere floating around on our wish list. Oral-B Pro rarely discounts products as heavily as they did on Prime Day, but it’s still at over $100 off right now.
if you do a Google search they have a lot of complaints. Unfortunately Amazon is not interested in good sellers, just whoever makes the most money for them like Anybook for example, another crook that Amazon allows to stay, despite horrible complaints.
Lewis’s novel was first published in 1935. The publisher, Penguin, calls it a story about the fragility of democracy: “Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler’s aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press.”
As well, the short time-frame in which the best sellers rank is calculated means that it’s a really small pool to be sampling. Say you’ve got a really small sales rank number (i.e. small in this case means as close to 1 as possible) — thinking it’s a hot seller isn’t necessarily true, as you, or the buyer, could simply be looking at something that’s been sold just a few seconds or minutes ago.
Here are the top 500 sellers on the Amazon.de marketplace. The feedback shown is only that received from sales on the German marketplace. The feedback data will vary from that in the global list above, for merchants selling to other European marketplaces using the same account.
(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 Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an engrossing adventure as you take the role of Link in a bid to save Hyrule anew. Puzzles, outstanding swordplay, and a compelling story make this game a must-have.
Hi. May I ask a question? I would like to find the best product to sell on Amazon. Therefore, I would like to see all items in a specific department. I read on a couple of websites to type  after choosing the department, but this obviously doesn’t work. Do you know any alternative way to see all items in a specific department? That would be so helpful.
Hi JT, as mentioned in the article, it’s based on recent sales relative to other books in the same category. By selling a copy, your rank will overtake thousands of other books instantly. If you sell 3 books in a short period, that’ll overtake a lot more books. you sell hundreds of books in a single day, you could well jump to #1, but as your sales decline, other books will overtake you pretty easily. If you want to keep that rank, you have to maintain a good number of steady sales pretty much day in day out…
The best-selling TVs in the U.S. this holiday season were the TCL 32-Inch 720p Roku Smart LED TV (2017 Model), Samsung Electronics 40-Inch 1080p Smart LED TV (2017 Model), TCL 49-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV (2017 Model) and Samsung Electronics 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2017 Model).
Their new book features more than 100 chef-developed recipes, like Chimichurri Beef Kabobs and Halibut with Citrus Ginger Glaze, designed to build your confidence in the kitchen and inspire your taste buds.
Gone are the days of having to be selected to put out a book. Gone are the days of having to go to a bookstore to see what is available. Now you can check online, with real time reviews, AND, real time “bestseller” rankings. It’s unsurprising that as the barriers to entry for the book business went down, so did the quality of the books being produced. These days, over one million books are published each year, with at least half of these self-published. So it’s almost obvious that, given the volume, you could game your way to the top of a category with very few sales. And yet, in spite of the fact that it’s as easy as I’ve shown to become an Amazon best-seller, those same people get to cash in on the goodwill and prestige build up in the title “bestselling author.”
