It’s the 1st of November, which means that it’s time for my monthly blog post!

This month the topic is:

26 Critical Amazon Ranking Factors

In today’s blog post you’ve got access to:

We’ll get to the content in just a moment.

Firstly though, if this if your first time here, WELCOME!!

The way this website works is that on the 1st of each month, I release a new blog post about something related to what we do in our business. I’ve been doing this since May 2012…

I try to make the blog posts as valuable and ‘actionable’ as possible, and they’re all based on things we do in our business (not theory, but ‘real life’ experiences).

I hope you enjoy my website, and I encourage you to take a look around as there’s much more for you to discover.

Since today’s post is specifically about selling physical products on Amazon, here are a few links to other blog posts that are also related to Amazon:

Steve and I meet face-to-face with Blueprint Academy members four times each year, as well as providing unrestricted access to our teams in China and Pakistan, as well as unrestricted access to Steve and I (Skype meetings, emails, etc).

    This is very timely information for me. I was an eFormula member and have 2 products which are now making about $3000 – $4000 profit each month, but my products still rank terribly so I must be doing something wrong. Thanks for sharing Aidan!

    • Aidan says:

      Great stuff CJ! Regarding your rankings, make sure you’re monitoring and optimizing for 3-5 keywords for each product, probably no more than this. Once you’ve got your target keywords, and once you build a plan based on this presentation/checklist, you should start seeing improvements.

  2. Dale Reardon says:


    Do similar factors apply to Amazon Kindle listings?


    • Aidan says:

      Hi Dale, yeah, a lot of the same things do apply, after all, Amazon wants to make money, so it’s motivated to position the best selling books at the top of the rankings.

  3. Bob Rogers says:

    Do you think selling Amazon products is still a viable business model with all the new competition that’s hitting the market?

    • Aidan says:

      Absolutely! The competition may have strengthened somewhat, but it’s still a great business model. Remember… you don’t need to rank #1 in Amazon to make this work… in fact, a lot of people have no known keyword rankings and they still do incredibly well.

  4. Janet says:

    Brilliant as always Aidan! Congratulations on the rugby win yesterday, you must be a happy man today!

  5. Craig says:

    I recently received a big inventory delivery for Christmas, and without doing anything, my sales ramped up, so I can definitely say that factor #19 has proven true in my case Aidan. Craig.

    Hi Aidan,
    Technical question…. I wanted to take a look at the 26 Amazon Ranking Factors Checklist & Slides. I clicked on the links above and submitted my email address. I got an email with a download link and it’s a PDF. The links within the PDF are not working. It says to Click HERE to download the check list, but when you click on it, nothing opens. Is there another link you could send me?

  7. Meredith says:

    Hi Aidan! Thanks for all the info! Do you know if it’s possible to use coupon codes for print books through seller central? I’ve attempted to do so and I always get as far as having the codes, but when I try to test them I get an error message. Any advice?
