I’d say reasonable percentage shares would be 50% CMS, 20% HTML/CSS and 30% design.
It’s the first date and she’s already your girlfriend? lol
No, he needs to have permission from you.
Sales affect a ranking for the same reason you’re buying an Asus / Acer / Dell / Apple instead of some new product released by a new company in your country. For the same reason that popular websites rank higher in search engines and everywhere, instead of some website that has quality content but was just released 2 weeks ago. Everyone was new, but you can’t expect someone new to sell in the same way as an elite author. That’s just wrong.
What’s also wrong is that old items released by elite authors rank for non-relevant keywords. That I agree, a business popular theme shouldn’t be in top 10 for “restaurant” or something like that. But I agree that themes with lots of sales should show up at the top rather than showing the new items at the top. They sell like that for a reason. The goal of this market is not to stop popular authors from selling. If you have a quality-product, it will sell itself. I’d bet that more than 50% of the authors that released a popular item didn’t do any promotion themselves.
Just my two cents.

Amazing. And I’m sure he won’t get banned.
I watch this regularly and I noticed quite a trend, this should be ordered by “best match” but I doubt it’s like that. The first 5-10 positions are always with new items which I doubt they are “best match”. After a few days or sales, they dissapear and go normally in the search. But, after those first positions with new items are filled in, the old items come up. I agree that new items should get exposure as well, but this seems weird as it seems to happen only on certain keywords. And I’m sure not all the new items are really a better choice rather than older but popular items.
So I see some problems here: old items that are stuck with their positions and can’t improve. And, the old items that are getting some boost and then they’re pushed somewhere at the page 5+. I guess those can be improved, but not sure why. I have no idea how can we work and raise our search rank. It looks so random.
Congratulations! Definitely deserved! The million’s coming!
