PS: Make sure you don’t have a comma in your numbers or else it won’t work!
This Kindle Sales Rank Calculator has been created as a free tool for you to use and even put on your own author website. It’s intentions are not to undermine Amazon in any way, but to instead help authors understand the connection between Amazon’s Best Sellers Rank number and Kindle ebooks sold per day.
Would You Like to Have Your Own Calculator on Your Computer?
My team and I just created KDP Rocket, a book idea validation software that not only uses the calculator above, but also helps you to find book ideas that will sell. It does this by finding popular search terms on both Amazon AND Google plus the following:
- Tells you how many people per month type the keyword into Google
- Tells you how many people per month type the keyword into Amazon (SUPER new feature)
- Gives a score from 1-99 telling you how competitive a kindle keyword is
- Tells you how much money other books are making
- Gives you key data so as to beat those books and rank better
Plus this Kindle publishing software works on both MAC and PC.
How to Use the Amazon Sales Rank Calculator

How to effectively use the KDP Calculator Numbers
Knowing the numbers is great, but knowing how to use them or when to use them can really take you to the next level.
The following are a couple of ways or situations in which the calculation can come in handy:
Check for Kindle Keywords or Categories
As you do your research to find effective keywords for your ebook’s sales page, this calculator can help to tell you if the results in a keyword search are profitable. You don’t want to target a Keyword phrase or Category that isn’t making sales.
Check Another Author’s Credibility
Sadly we operate in a self-publishing world where many marketers make false claims. I am sure we have all heard it… “yeah, I make 6 figures with my books every month” or something along those lines. If that is the case, go ahead and plug their ebook’s rank number into the plugin and see what comes up. Be careful though, the rank number changes frequently.
Kindle Sales Rank Goals
Just being able to see the target “books per day” can be a real difference maker and help an author setup their publishing goals. Instead of being a mythical number, you can now have a better understanding of what to expect and what is attainable.
