I’m pretty sure you’re missing a class of sellers. These are both long-time Amazon Sellers that I’ve had experience buying from and both are missing from your list but clearly have the feedback scores to make it.
“I love my new Paperwhite Kindle. I’ve been using an aging keyboard Kindle 2, waiting for a version with a built-in light like this. Amazon really got it right with the light on this one.” – Chad Bush, Amazon reviewer
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.

For the authors: I hope my story illustrates that the best marketing tactic you can use for a book is to write a great book that actually sells over the long term. It’s easy to be seduced by best-seller lists, sales numbers, speaking fees, and all the ephemera in this industry. Don’t let all of that make you lose sight of the importance of quality and authority in your work. Anyone can be a one-hit wonder; focus on crafting a book that will sell for decades.
Regarding Andy’s comment; I think it’s a good base to go from seeing as how there isn’t much other data that Amazon is willing to make public. A few of the listed companies can probably shuffle around in hierarchy (if given 100% data) but I’d say for the general,.. those listed def earned to be “nominated” of making it on the list lol!
(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.
Amazon has their own “bestseller” rankings for books, based upon categories. If you’re in the Top 100 in your Amazon category, you will see a “bestseller ranking” below the title. A book at the #1 spot in any given category will get a “#1 Best Seller” banner featured next to the title. This lets potential customers know the book is the top-selling item in that category. If a book holds the top spot in a category for months, that’s saying something. Hitting it for an hour (which is how often Amazon refreshes its rankings), screen-shotting it, and calling yourself a “bestselling author” for life? Well…
“I like that you are able to track your sleep and sleep patterns and accuracy. It is also very motivating to see how many steps and calories you have burned and makes you want to “beat” your personal best everyday.” – Flora Nun, Amazon reviewer
Technology is helpful, fun, exciting, life-saving and expensive! If you have unlimited dollars and could buy all the gadgets and gizmos you wanted, there’d be no problem. (Well, maybe not.) Alas, we’re all limited, and we have to choose which tech toy is coming home from the store with us. Or which one will arrive at our door after shopping from our dining room. You sit in front of the computer, awed by the potential that’s out there waiting to sit in your palm. But funds limit your fun. Which leads to choices, choices, choices. Maybe this presentation can help.
Featuring a base of sweet almond oil and fruity notes of lychee, this Himalayan salt scrub is a favorite among Amazon users. If this particular formula isn’t quite up your alley, you can choose from other “flavors” like coconut milk, brown sugar, spirulina, arabica coffee, and more. It has over 3,200 reviews and a 4.5-star rating.

The only agreed upon fact was that Amazon’s algorithm was a big fat secret. And, according to their information page, the ratings are actually updated hourly across the board, though the exact moment of update might depend on time zone. To get some perspective, I searched The Hunger Games in paperback and found that it was No. 7. Since my father-in-law kept making jokes about me passing Charles Dickens, I looked up Great Expectations in paperback too: No. 982. Just narrowly beaten out by the dildos.

“The secret to cracking the New York Times Best Sellers list is that they only compile the list based on certain stores that report their figures,” she explains. “The first question any book lover should ask when you go into a book store is, ‘Are you a New York Times reporting bookstore?'”
