Why Amazon Ranking Isn't On a Roll

Those of you who are curious about whether Amazon book rankings are a good measure of selling success might be interested in this story:

On January 30th, my Amazon ranking was 352,039. Two days later two of my books were sold through Amazon—just two (as far as I can tell), but within just hours of each other.

My Amazon ranking shot to 6,093.

So it’s kind of cool to find yourself with a high ranking, but it’s not a measure that you’re rolling in new readers.

Just the same, I’ll still shoot for number one when “No Campfire, Girls” comes up in a couple of months!

Man that was a big jump. Maybe that will entice more reader to buy your book with the higher ranking.

That's exactly why a lot of writers try to get their Amazon ranking up when they first release a book ... and who knows? I would think it would help.
