As much as I'd love that type of data, I'm thinking that it would be like looking directly at the sun. :eek:
317 Clicks, 4 purchases, slightly more than a 1% conversion ratio. And now I see dark swirly spots after staring directly into the sun for 10 seconds. Still, bring on the sun any day!

I can't do it.
I'd be checking and then thinking "Nooooo, don't just click! Buy!  Buy my book! Where are you going? Come back here!  Just one more click and this could be yours!"

Too much pain, man.

Why would I need a graph, when I've already got a metaphor?

Haha! Please pick me up! Pretty please! Love it! Now, if he actually paid for a haircut (professional cover), had a sign to say where he wanted to go (good blurb) and maybe got someone sexy to thumb the cars (an agent) he would have gotten a lift much sooner. Oh, wait, maybe he's an indie?

Oh, I thought everyone did this already. So easy to do, and essential really if you want to scientifically test the effect of new covers, blurbs, or any other change.

I assume it's through tracking pixels or a similar embedded HTML, which is probably against some part of the TOS. Good use of $5.

Ah, yes, that's probably it. That'll be my excuse for not bothering. :)

I don't see anything in the TOS that says you can't do this. We would they? It's in Amazon's interests that we sell more, and a decent analytics tool is crucial to improving sales online.
