Skip to comments.Interesting Experiment for Freepers
Posted on 04/11/2005 12:47:08 PM PDT by LS
Freepers, my agent told me he had come across reports that suggested that the Amazon rankings of books are partly (even mostly) driven by "hits" on that book's site as opposed to "scans" of actual sales. I'd appreciate some help testing this: I will list three Freeper books, and ask you each to go to their Amazon site. Let's see if there is a sudden change in the numbers. (PS, if you think I'm going this to bump up my own Amazon ratings, then please ignore my book and JUST do the other two.)
Matthew Bracken, "Enemies, Foreign and Domestic." http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0972831010/qid=1113248489/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/104-8532284-7986326,
Mark Goldblatt, "Africa Speaks," http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/157962037X/qid=1113248675/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/104-8532284-7986326
Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen, "A Patriot's History of the United States," http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1595230017/qid=1105121728/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/104-8532284-7986326?v=glance&s=books
