Come on, Amazon!

One thing that sucks about self publishing is being at the mercy of other people.

In this case, a publisher.

If you slip just a couple slots down on Amazon’s ranking (which is updated hourly), you’re suddenly falling off the first page. Much like how SEO works, if you’re not near the top you’re significantly behind.

One of my new books (that did incredibly well) slipped off the first page and the drop off was noticeable.

I’m still trying to figure out the best “counter” to this…

  • Hit up my email list and push hard
  • Just see what happens
  • Run promotions

How do you combat Amazon’s system?
