Amazon Rank: What Does It Mean?


What does my amazon ranking mean? Followed by, how can it be improved?

Well improving it means more sales but just how many is the question. Many of our authors have had very high rankings in the Amazon charts. The higher your ranking (the closer to 1 it is) the more books you are selling.

It is crucial because the higher your ranking and the more you’re selling the more Amazon is going to lend you a helping hand.

    I am ready with my third book to be published by Kindle Amazon . I improved my writing and appearance of the book when I was on 2nd . Now with the third book I need guidance so that it improves further . There are a lot of original photographs to go with this book . I cannot decide if they should form partC of the book ? Part A is the story , part B are the clippings . The book's title is self explanatory 'Monkeys of Tughlaqabad and I'. Though its written like a story , it is a non fiction book . Guidance required please.
