Quite a huge success for Amazon.de: The major German newspaper / tabloid BILD today started printing weekly fiction and non-fiction charts, based on combined e-book and printed book sales on Amazon.de. BILD sells around 2.2 million copies daily, and the online version bild.de has around 18 million unique visitors per month.
The online version of the BILD charts features 20 books for fiction and non-fiction and directly links to the book and e-book on Amazon. BILD is earning affiliate provisions with those links. This will give those titles a huge boost in visibility. Today’s version has 6 self-published titles in the fiction area while the non-fiction books are all coming from traditional publishers.
