    What browser is the best way to check your PPC position with? I get different results if I use Chrome vs Chrome Igognito. Thanks!

    • Hi Brent, it’s very relative! Amazon uses cache data so sometimes results are a bit different through your account based on their algorithms reviewing your activity. Any time a keyword is searched, essentially a mini auction occurs to determine the placement of ads. Depending on the volume of searches and the activity, it’s definitely possible that ad positions will shift around a little bit. Incognito is neutral but most people will not be searching in incognito mode, meaning that every shopper is going to have different cache data which influences results.
