Hello everyone:) Newbie here:) Thanks to everyone on here sharing their experiences and advice! So much good advice!!!

Now for my question...  I usually rank pretty high in the erotica "books" category, but low in the "Kindle eBooks" category. Does anyone know why that is? I've seen authors where this is reversed, and I just don't understand the logic behind it. All my books are kindle eBooks.

Thanks!!!

If you're talking about author rankings, it's hard to say. It seems they have their own algo that takes more into consideration than just sales. Erotica author rankings are particularly odd. For instance, I have one pen name that is all erotica books and one romance. My erotica sales don't count at all for overall author rankings on that pen name, but the one romance does.

Not in the erotica category...

I just think it's weird when there's such a huge difference in ranking for books and kindle ebooks for the same category. Though I guess if the algorithms for the two categories are different that could explain it.

It's just something I've been puzzling over. Thanks for answering!
