How many times have you seen a reference to Amazon’s A9 Algorithm?
And how many of those references seemed to exhort you to “figure it out,” possibly through some sort of paid method?
David Gaughran has amazing news for you, going forward: the “A9 Algorithm” is a unicorn … that is, it’s completely invented.
Gaughran debunks the myth of the A9 Algorithm by explaining its roots (a real search engine dubbed A9) and how Amazon’s search function actually works, for those interested.
For those not interested — just breathe a sigh of relief at knowing you don’t have to understand the A9 Algorithm just to sell books successfully!
