Free Downloaded ebooks do NOT count equally as a paid sale. They may have a loooong time ago when the Kindle Slect program first started but for at least the last year or longer even a free giveaway downloaded only counts for about one tenth of a paid sale in overall/sub-category rankings.

While Google hasn’t yet opened up product distribution outside the U.S., earlier this week, Amazon indicated that it would ship the device to select international destinations. Shoppers in Europe, Asia and Australia reported success in ordering the device. But now, Amazon’s Chromecast product listing reads: “Currently, item can be shipped only within the U.S. and to APO/FPO addresses.”
At one point 5 books where up in the Adult Colouring Books and 2 in Stress Management. I’ve still done no marketing. Then a couple dropped out of the Colouring Books but not too low that they can’t come back into the Bestsellers later. I have one left in the Stress Management. The other books I have are about 170s mark so with a bit of work might get into the Bestsellers.

Easy – invest in a tool that automatically reprices your products so that you always stay on top of the Buy Box. This is almost a requirement when you have lots of products for sale; there’s just no way to stay on top of pricing for all of them.
The PS4-exclusive adventure Horizon: Zero Dawn was also one of Amazon’s most popular titles of 2017, coming in at No. 4. Call of Duty: WWII, which Activision touted was the No. 1 game in North America by revenue, also took two spots on Amazon’s top 10 the PS4 version was No. 5, with the Xbox One version following at No. 6. Some of Amazon’s other top-selling titles include Destiny 2, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
I haven’t personally checked out or reviewed this Windows laptop, but after reading many of the mostly positive user reviews on Amazon, it appears to be a great option for those who need an affordable, yet capable budget laptop.
I’ve been driven nearly to distraction that my BSR Category keeps getting placed incorrectly. The product category is correct, but instead of it showing BSR of Electronics, it shows BSR in Office Products.

Last week Facebook IPO rumors swirled about the Internet. Few in the tech world were able to focus on anything else. Facebook’s estimated $75-$100 billion IPO had tech-meisters and analysts drooling. Finally, the world’s largest social network decided to put a price on everyones’ personal data.
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.
Internet Retailer’s estimates include marketplace merchants’ inventory. It also believes that the longer hours — a 30-hour sale compared to last year’s 24-hour sale — will be a large factor in Prime Day sales’ increase.

Next I bought three of my books myself through the Amazon website and when I still saw no sales on my author page, and questioned them again, they stated again that there had been no sales. Now if this isn`t fishy I don`t know what is.
Yes, as a Chromebook lover, performance, speed and lag free experience is very important for me. And Haswell based Intel 2995u has given me the best experience so far. Battery life is 8 hours and it is not very noisy either.
(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.
Hi Lola! Thanks for your comment. I’m getting this section (free vs paid) of the aricle changed, so this is made clearer- as mentioned in a previous comment, it seems the weightings are the same, but the lists are different….
