How can I sell/give away over 300 books in 4 hours and NOT have my rankings change?? My sales were going up by fours every few minutes.

My rank, finally, after almost 2 hours, updated, but I've sold/gave away close to 500 books, in just a few hours, but my ranking is still questionable, (seems a little low for the amount and time). Is anyone else having this issue? Is it a hack, glitch, or is it really happening?!! (The last would be so sweet)!

I know some would say, 'sit back and enjoy', but I would like to know how many are really out there.

I would like to thank the person/s who promoted my book today. Thank You just isn't a big enough phrase!

Rankings are not just based on what you sell/give away, but on what other books in your genre are doing, plus other factors that no one really knows. Also, updates aren't immediate.
