I published a short story on Dec 6 th, cannot find it anywhere in the store, the only way is to enter the title in search bar then it comes up. Have complained to Amazon and received this email, can anyone decipher what it means, as follows.
As promised, I raised this issue with our technical team and they informed that they limit the number of ASINs show on the search results pages.
They also informed that they do not show results after a certain number of pages (depending on the type of search and number of results per page).
Because your ASIN is ranked in a position after this limit, you cannot reach it by clicking on Next Page links at the bottom of search results pages. This is working as designed. I'm sorry for any disappointment this issue has caused.
I'm very sorry about all of this. I hope you understand our limitations.
Find your book and scroll down to "Product Details" then further scroll down until you see "Amazon Bestsellers Rank" If you can't find such a heading, it means there have been no sales. Make sure you buy a copy, this will at least give you a "Rank"...you should also set-up an author page through Author central, and then claim your book.
