Some of these companies pay even their own employees to write feedback (they have the employee “buy” something, pay the employee plus give free incentives/product Many of the book dealers are the worst..
Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) posts its most popular items based on unit sales. It calls the list “Amazon Best Sellers.” The list draws from six primary categories, with the top 20 selling items in each. These include toys and games, electronics, camera and photo, video games, books, and clothing, shoes and jewelry. Amazon does not make it entirely clear whether these categories exhaust a list of the very best-selling products, but it presents them as if they were. Amazon also offers free shipping on over 100 million items.
On Thursday, a lawyer for Trump demanded the author and publisher stop releasing material, retract what had already been released, and apologize. Instead, publisher Henry Holt & Co. bumped up the book’s publication date up four days from Jan. to Jan. 5, citing “unprecedented demand.”
With that said; I’ve would have to give ballpark of around 5-7% for seller feedback (even worse conversions for product reviews) averaging the highs and lows of niches, marketplaces, product quality, etc. etc… high end is about 20-23%.
Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) is an e-commerce powerhouse that has continually expanded its footprint from its early days of selling books online to now selling nearly everything from beauty products to car parts. Last year alone, Amazon brought in an eye-popping $136 billion in revenue, and 43% of all e-commerce sales in the U.S. were completed through Amazon’s website, according to Slice Intelligence.
Just like with the &field-keywords= string, the only part of the URL necessary to tell Amazon to bring us to the “Kitchen & Dining” category is the &node= query, in this case &node=284507. So, if we wanted to link to this page, you could strip down the URL to this:

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.
So in the spirit of offering you the same expert advice I’d give to my nearest and dearest, I’ve combed through the best-selling budget-laptop lists from both Amazon and Best Buy, and weighed the pros and cons, taking into account the various configurations and specs. Both lists change quite rapidly, so I’m basing this on a snapshot in time—namely, the best-selling laptops on the morning of November 7, 2017.

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.
Across Amazon Books’ 13 bookstores, one out of seven customers who purchased a book also donated a children’s book to local charities supporting children in need. The top selling book given to local charities was the classic, Are You My Mother by P.D. Eastman; it was also the top selling book across all 13 stores.
How many copies did I need to sell be able to call up my mother and celebrate my newfound authorial achievements? Three. Yes, a total of three copies to become a best-selling author. And I bought two of those copies myself!
“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?'”
I’m the Amazon sales manager at one of the companies listed above and can definitively say that the idea of 10-20% of transactions getting feedback has some limitations as an indicator for units sold.
Another thing is that even though their seller feedback rating might be stellar, you will see if you read back in their 40/50 feedbacks per day that negative feedback gets buries almost instantly (and funny…most the positive feedback after negative feedback will take a point or two of the negative feedback proceeding it and comment in the positive on those points.
As the biggest day in Insider Picks history, a whole lot of you participated — which means we have an even greater sample pool, on a super concentrated day of deals, to glean some wisdom from. Data like this helps us get better at talking about the subjects that you care about and finding the deals that you’ll be most glad to know about. But even though we use feedback like this to get better and better, we love it when you drop us a line at insiderpicks@businessinsider and tell us things you’d like to hear more about or are perhaps having trouble finding on your own.
“If a book has cracked the top 100 and and particularly the top 20 and stays there — the duration is a huge part of it, if it stays there for a few days — that is generally a very strong sign that it is going to be a New York Times Best Seller and that it is going to start showing up on other lists,” Eisenmann says. “To hit that top slot is huge. It means that a book is selling hugely during the period it is there.”

Famed journalist Carl Bernstein, who called Trump a neo-fascist last March, said on CNN that “fascism is about a maximum leader, who is contemptuous of real democracy, of real Democratic institutions, contemptuous of the press and a free press, who extols torture and violence, who incites hatred. And there’s a great book, Sinclair Lewis’ ‘It Can’t Happen Here,’ published in the ’30s, and we’ve never quite had a presidential candidate reach this level of prominence who embodies kind of what Sinclair Lewis was talking about in that book.”

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.
There are plenty of other bestseller lists and rankings which you can base your book buying decision on, but Amazon’s Bestsellers Rank is by far one of the most cited. As mentioned at the start of the article, though, it’s difficult to pin the Amazon Bestsellers Rank down too firmly, but the above is what I’ve dissected from plenty of research online. People will disagree to an extent with some of the above, but the importance you place on this ranking algorithm is up to you. I don’t know how (or even if at all) this ranking impacts buyer decision, but I hope you’ve found this interesting.

We actually worked with 2 sellers out of this list and improved their feedback from ~5% to about ~21% on all orders.. essentially doubling their monthly totals from previous months. (without going into super data). Anyways.. I think they probably climbed up this list since.. =)
Not very good quality. So much sellers are missing. Sometimes a seller is missing only in one marketplace. For example KW-Comerce in europe. There you have only two markets instead of 5. And KW is one of the biggest. ?

One of the most common decisions that people have been needing to make when considering laptops of this caliber is whether to go with the MacBook Air or the MacBook Pro. There isn’t a “correct” answer to this question, as each one offers something that the other does not. But with a solid state drive, amazing screen, long battery life and snappy processor, the MacBook Air is going to make a lot of people very happy.
Perhaps most important, Chromecast isn’t restricted to a single platform. Although it’s produced by Google, Chromecast works for both iPhone/iPad and Android users, at least for the most part, which gives almost anyone with a smartphone, tablet or computer the opportunity to stream to their TV using devices they already know and use. In other words, there’s virtually no learning curve.

I’m aware that its quite easy to pick a category and become a best seller in it. I see Internet Marketers do it all the time for positioning so I wanted to get the UK topspot as a way of feeling justified in promoting myself as a Best Seller.
All the research reports say that Electronics along with Cell Phones and Accessories are the most famous product categories on Amazon, although there are some exceptions like Cards Against Humanity LLC (Toys), Positively Tea LLC and Healthworks (Groceries), and NatureWise (Health and Household).
