The two-month-old Chromecast currently tops the charts for every Amazon subcategory it’s listed in, including digital media devices, streaming media players and televisions and video. The next most popular TV streaming devices in the general electronics rankings are the Apple TV (at #7) and the Roku 3 (at #8).
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’.
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.
Dear Rob thanks for the excellent post. I am a new author in Kindle and have published a preschool book “MY FIRST PRETTY BOOK OF ANIMALS: a gift for little ones”. My free rank was #1 but my paid rank is #280,230. Please tell me why such a difference has happened. Secondly I want to know how did you determine the figures of sales and amazon rank. Your advice will be really grateful.

Rankings there are determined by book sales reported to The Times by retailers across the country, the Times’ methodology states. But, there is “no exact number” of sales that will land you on the list, according to a representative for The Times.
Amazon’s not interested in its products gaining a spot at the top of the best-seller list because it makes tons of money them. The company typically sells its devices at-cost, or even at a loss. The bigger picture is that Amazon uses its products as a catalyst for selling more items on its website, and for hooking users into its ecosystem.
With all the talk about Buy Boxes, you may think that’s the first thing sellers take notice of when deciding on a purchase. But as RepricerExpress is here to show you, there’s another heavily-weighted factor: the Best Sellers Rank.

From what I understand, this can sometimes be because a product is new, or that they just haven’t had any recent sales, so they simply don’t rank against other products in that category… hope this helps!
Amazon also stated that 60 percent of holiday sales were made from a mobile device. Purchases made using gadgets were especially brisk on Cyber Monday, as Amazon sold 18 toys per second, via mobile devices. This indicates shoppers are moving away from the computer and grabbing the phone or tablet to shop online instead.
Midyear sales figures for the video game industry show two things — the staying power of hot holiday sellers and which spring releases have found a loyal audience. While the positions shift (and many titles fall off the charts) once the holiday months arrive, they’re a good barometer of publisher health.
The editors read hundreds of books per year trying to pick the most interesting titles. They select the best books of each month, which are naturally taken into consideration when compiling two main lists: in June and December.
Hi Hutch, thanks for your comment. Do you have a link to a specific article which shows this? I agree that free vs paid has a massive bearing on movers/shakers, top 100 etc, but for the sales rank, the vast majority of data I’ve seen and experienced supports that the weighting between free and paid for this specific list is pretty equal- would love to see some quality evidence for the contraty though, and if I’m wrong, will be happy to change the article…
(Publisher: Take-Two Interactive Software) — The sports world used to be the sole domain of Electronic Arts, but the 1999 launch of the first “NBA 2K” changed the game. Today, the franchise is one of Take-Two’s most profitable — and has a fan base that buys each new installment regularly throughout the year. In recent months, Take-Two and the NBA have partnered on an esports league that will continue to bolster the public profile of “NBA 2K.”

Give your VPCs out to friends and family in exchange for reviews/sales metrics. This is also an awesome hack, which most of our clients use with great success. You can set up a VPC and discount your product down to your total costs (so you’re not taking a loss on each sale, but breaking even). Then give this VPC out to friends and family, and have them buy it through Amazon on their own. Most people will be ecstatic to receive such a deeply discounted product, and you’ll get a ‘Verified Purchase’ review – as well as a boost in your initial sales data!
A new novel from an internationally acclaimed author Arundhati Roy takes us on a journey of many years – the story spooling outwards from the cramped neighbourhoods of Old Delhi into the burgeoning new metropolis and beyond, to the Valley of Kashmir and the forests of Central India, where war is peace and peace is war, and where, from time to time, ‘normalcy’ is declared.
As you would expect from a computer in this price range, this HP Envy has some great components that will fly through most common computing tasks. The Intel i7 processor is remarkably fast, as is the 750 GB 7200 RPM hard drive. If you perform a lot of intensive applications on your computer, then this could be the right computer for you.
Here’s what happened in the book industry over the last few years: As Amazon has become the big dog in the book world, the “Amazon Bestseller” status has come to be synonymous with being an actual bestseller. This is not true, and I can prove it.

Chromecast’s sales success does suggest that mainstream users aren’t too concerned about the lack of streaming options—to date, only two non-Google services, Netflix and Hulu, work directly with Chromecast—or the wait for more apps to emerge. At least not yet.
