    I notice that on many top sellers in electronics, the page says "updated daily." I'm wondering if that means everything gets updated once a day, and that's it. Or only the top sellers list? I'd like to use language on my site such as "continuously updated" but I'm not sure that's completely true.

    Perhaps other products and prices ARE updated "live" throughout the day?

    Any insight into the process would be appreciated by this AWS newbie.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    I have asked amazon.com about updating but they have not replied yet.

    The cache.stale configuration parameter specifies how many hours data remains in the Associate Engine cache. The minimum you can set it to is 1 (for 1 hour caching). Using 1 hour will ensure that your website has prices at most 1 hour old.

    Here is the reply from the Amazon Web Services department:<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>We make changes to our catalog data throughout the day; items are subject to change at any time. Prices, availability, and sales rank will be the most volatile, of course. We don't publish any specific information on this other than the fact that sales rank is recomputed hourly for top sellers.
