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:
- 69 minute presentation from the London meeting of our inner circle ‘Blueprint Academy’ group (see below)
- Amazon Rankings Factors Checklist (click here to download)
- Presentation Slides (click here to get access to these)
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:

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!
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.
Do similar factors apply to Amazon Kindle listings?
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.
Do you think selling Amazon products is still a viable business model with all the new competition that’s hitting the market?
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.
Brilliant as always Aidan! Congratulations on the rugby win yesterday, you must be a happy man today!
Hi Janet, THANK YOU! And yes, I’m extremely happy with yesterday’s result!!!!
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.
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?
Hi Tammy, send our support desk an email and we’ll get you what you need: http://support.blueprintcentral.com 🙂
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?
I’m not sure about this Meredith…!
