How can the results be sorted in a keyword search or even a browse of a particular mode so that the item with the lowest (best) Amazon sales rank is the first in the list and the rest follow in order?
From a user's perspective, they'll want to see the most popular stuff right at the top of the page, not hidden somewhere in the 25 listed. For example, right now a Harry Potter book is #1 on Amazon:
However, if I do this:
then it is down at #17 on my list. Is there a way to make it match the amazon page?

Add sort=+salesrank to the URL, such as:
The Amazon.com Web Services (AWS) 2.0 API and Integration Guide states the following about sort order:
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>If a sort parameter isn’t specified in the [AWS XML] request, the default sort order is set to the same order used by the Amazon.com Web site for that particular node.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
It appears that the default sort order of browse node 549066 via AWS is "Featured Items" rather than "Bestselling" which is what that page uses when it is accessed directly at the amazon.com website. Hopefully amazon.com will fix this sort problem in AWS.
