Amazon.com ranking is as far as I know is quite reliable. Because if you compare Billboard 100 albums and how it is ranked in Amazon it is almost close. But the catch is it works quite well on top ranking albums. Because often certain album is low ranking because people do not recognize them. That means unless you know the artist exists you will never reach the right section of the Amazon music homepage right? Even those drawbacks Amazon is doing quite well even for low ranking albums. Because there are multiple layers of markets in U.S. It is like Minor League and Major League. Serving ranking for even Minor League markets is quite a boon for indy labels who can set practical goals. And if certain albums become hit it might have a chance for Major League. Because of Amazon. com ranking the way how American market works become clear to us.
