Why can't I see the actual ranking?

I'm stumped. Sometimes I click on one of my short e-books and it says very specific rankings like #73 (when its on a freebie) and other times it doesn't have these details. I really like to keep track on free promo days but can't. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

It is nothing you have done or can do.
It is the wonky system and add to that, the last day for 2-day shipping for the Christmas season at the Zon so the system is really busy.

What Donna said; and each country has different lists of rankings, often picking out different key words. It is a real muddle.

It's weird, but I don't have a ranking showing up on my page. Here's a link to my book if you can check to see if you see rankings on it: www.livinglive.tv/yofamazon

Here's what's on my page:

NOTHING AFTER THIS. THE RANKINGS SHOULD BE HERE, RIGHT? Does anyone know how I can get the rankings to show on my page? I did my book sale tonight and was hoping to see that I went to #1, but have no way of knowing. Darn it.

Thanks in advance,
