    Amazon’s search algorithm is a complex system that takes into account various factors to rank products in search results. While the exact algorithm is not public, here are some of the factors that are believed to influence product ranking on Amazon:

    Relevance: The relevance of the product to the search query is a critical factor in ranking. Amazon’s algorithm considers factors such as product title, description, and keywords to determine relevance.

    Sales Performance: Amazon prioritizes products that are selling well in their search rankings. Products that have high sales velocity, high customer ratings, and positive reviews are likely to rank higher in search results.

    Fulfillment Method: Amazon gives preference to products that are fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) over those that are fulfilled by the seller (FBM). FBA products are more likely to have faster shipping times, which can improve customer satisfaction and increase sales velocity.

    Availability: Products that are in stock and available for purchase are more likely to rank higher in search results.

    Price: Amazon’s algorithm takes into account the price of the product compared to similar products in the category. Products that are priced competitively may rank higher in search results.
