What is BSR (Best Sellers Rank) on Amazon and How Does It Work?
BSR is calculated based on the number of sales of a given product on an hourly basis, as well as current and historical sales as well. BSR isn’t influenced by the product reviews or rating; it’s solely looking at sales rate. It essentially tells you how your product ranks compared to other products within the same Amazon product category.

How Often Is Best Sellers Rank Updated on Amazon?

What Is a Good BSR on Amazon?
Generally speaking, a good BSR is somewhere between 1-10,000. With that said, a good BSR is dependent on the number of products in a given category, and whether you’re in the top .5%, 1%, 3%, etc. of that category. Some product categories are in much higher demand, meaning you could have a product with a 1,000 BSR in two categories and they would have very different daily sales numbers.
