As of 4pm on Tuesday, my Amazon Sales Ranking are back.

HOWEVER, the search functionality is still not working. Not only are my gay books still not showing up: sometimes not at all, sometimes not in the proper order, even when they have better sales ranks than my non-gay books.

When one types in "Lawrence Schimel" from the main amazon.com page, the first gay book to show up is the Kindle version of PoMoSEXUALS at slot 16. (The Kindle store has its own ranking system, so apples and oranges to the print rankings.)

My most recent gay title, BEST GAY POETRY 2008, has Amazon.com Sales Rank: #604,593 in Books.

However, BEST GAY POETRY 2008 does not even show up in the top 50 (and a search from the main page only shows 50 items, then you have to go to a specific department).

Despite BEST GAY POETRY 2008 selling better than the first two non-gay titles of mine which show up:

1.FAIRY TALES FOR WRITERS
Amazon.com Sales Rank: #830,921 in Books (See Bestsellers in Books)

2.FIELDS OF BLOOD: VAMPIRE STORIES FROM THE AMERICAN HEARTLAND
Amazon.com Sales Rank: #1,456,863 in Books (See Bestsellers in Books)

So either they haven't fixed the glitch completely yet or the suppression of ooky homosexual titles continues...

I think it is also possible that they have fixed the actual glitches, but the code changes haven't propagated to all of their servers. I know the All Departments "homosexuality" search is still vile. However, I know another lj user and I were getting different results with "Heather Has Two Mommies" (which has become my default test book) for a while. So, hopefully the caches will clear someday.
