In the continued effort to keep things running smoothly for everyone, it’s time to make-good on the agreement outlined in the FAQ over 5 years ago. Up until now, no old salesrank data has ever been removed. That means, if you started tracking your book 5 years ago, there are 30,000 salesrank records in the database for your book!
During the month of September, that number will be reduced to the last 2 years worth of data only. This doesn’t include estimated sales numbers, just salesrank records. If you would like to download them prior to them being expunged forever, you should go to a book’s detail page and click the Download to Excel/CSV option to show you the appropriate download link.
In the rare situation that a book is in the system, and after removing all but the last 2 years worth of salesrank data, it doesn’t have any new salesrank information, it will be completely removed from NovelRank.
I’m sure most people really won’t care about this, as the historical salesrank information is not exactly captivating, but I did want to give everyone a heads-up.
