amazon.jp search

When a customer conducts a search on Amazon.co.jp, search results are returned using algorithms which generate a list of books relevant to the search term and then rank those books according to sales ranking (based on total units sold) and availability.

Search Inside the Book Wiley submit as many books as possible for participation in amazon’s Search Inside the Book programme. Participation means when a customer conducts a search on amazon, the search engine searches Amazon’s entire database of Search Inside the Book content to return results based not only on title and bibliographic ‘hits’ but also on ‘hits’ generated by key phrases within a book’s text and table of contents. Research by Amazon has proved a positive correlation between books participating in Search Inside and increased sales.
