Hey, how come when we look at top selling categories from jan-may 2017 we don’t see clothing, shoes, jewelry anywhere, then all of a sudden this category jumps to number 1 in June?
Do you have a page which explains your methodology?
These counts are not for “top selling” – they are counts for “number of products for sale”.
I agree with Aaron. But do not think your response adequately answers the question. What are the counts for clothing, shoes and jewelry from Jan – May 2017?
I agree with Aaron and Matt. Besides, I noticed that the category “digital music” felling out of the top 10 list from may 2017 suddenly.
Could you please tell us what caused it. Amazon changed the products for sale dramatically? Or just the calculation caliber be replaced？
We dont know the causes – we just gather the data.
Thanks. I want to confirm whether you have gathered the data for clothing in or before May 2017? Or there was no certain category “clothing, shoes and jewelry” at that time?
