Online shopping is one of the fastest growing markets of the 21st century. Today we can buy almost everything online, from groceries to house furniture.
As the market grows, more and more manufacturers offer their goods online. If one is looking to buy a smart watch for example, a simple search on Amazon.com alone,
one of the largest e-commerce sites in the world, would result in over 3000 different options. Such information overload makes it impossible for the customer to manually evaluate all options.
To help the customer make a purchase decision, many eCommerce sites offer different product ranking options.
In this work, we analyze different aspects of best seller ranked lists.
