[AMAZON] Rankings

Post by IndyIndie » Thu Feb 08, 2018 3:03 pm

While I normally do a pretty good job of not obsessing over these silly rankings, I was wondering if anyone has any insight as to how one of my books can jump up over 400k spots without a sale and only eleven page reads.

Thanks in advance,
Patrick

You need to go to the KDP forum, on which there is a thread called, Know your reports. It explains a lot about the rankings and such as well, namely; a loan of an ebook, even though not read, will cause a sudden spike in rankings. I have seen this occur many times. You may also show a spike in rankings of a sale that may not show up on your reports page for a day or more. You should read the thread, though, it is very good.
