How the Kindle ‘charts’ work…

Came across a site that had done a great deal of research and established the following data for fiction titles sold on Kindle in the USA.

Note – this doesn’t work with the minor genres – with 1492 and all that! I briefly hit 70th within its rather specialised non-fiction genre after just a handful of sales. Ah hubris – I see it has slumped since!

I do apologise that I do not have a source noted for this chart and know I gleaned it from a chart and comments on the chart, but have lost the attribution – if anyone knows where it came from then do let me know and I’ll promptly add it here.

I guess the actual data is a very moveable feast, but this is the first time I have seen any sort of gauge of daily sales v ranking – hopefully I can check out their veracity for myself in the future?
