These brands depending on Amazon search optimisation and Amazon ads are going to add essence to this problem as they would way to out-rank them. As soon as the marketplace banned incentivized reviews, it became tougher for the brands to bootstrap without putting considerable efforts into it.

As documentary filmmakers who have published both DVDs and books, my in-laws have experienced Amazon ranking firsthand. They informed me that my book had likely been assigned a number though it was only currently available for pre-order, but the numbers changed all the time, so I might as well wait to look. I could arguably head upstairs to my laptop and get a preliminary sense of the book’s standing immediately, but what was the point?
