There's a new phrase in town: Amazon rank.

In case you haven't heard, recently Amazon.com (and apparently Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.ca) has taken to removing the sales rankings for GLBT books, claiming that they fall under the category of "adult" content. This is in spite of the fact that many of the books with rankings removed have no sexual/explicit content and are apparently only being removed because of their GLBT theme. Somehow books by Playboy and Penthouse don't fall under this "adult" category, but Lady Chatterly's Lover and The Well of Loneliness do. Strange, yes?

HOWEVER! Never fear, the Smart Bitches are here! They have started a Google Bombing campaign, and I for one hope you decide to join in. Just make sure to link back to their definition with the anchor text Amazon rank. Simple, yes?

It's time to let people know just how rank this Amazon rank bullshit really is.

(See also the #amazonfail hashtag on Twitter, if you are on too many social networking services like me have an account)
