top = Top Level category;
all = All categories (only 1 SKU/ASIN allowed);
child = Child category.


Use ranges (e.g.A2:A100) in your formula wherever possible for quicker results and to prevent Google blocking your account for 24 hrs due to overloading their resources. 

=GORILLA_RANKHIST("last 30 days", A2:A100)

Bulk returns the BSR over the preset “last 30 days” for all SKU’s from A2 to A100. No marketplace is specified so the default marketplace for your account is returned.

=GORILLA_RANKHIST("custom", A2:A5, "US", "top", "2018-06-01", "2018-06-30")

Bulk returns BSR from June 1 to June 30 for each SKU from A2 to A5. Also returns the top level category the SKU is located in. USA marketplace is requested.

=GORILLA_RANKHIST("this month", "B00YD545CC", "JP", "child")

Returns the rankings for each day this month for the sku. Requesting Japan marketplace ranking and category will show the top level category as well as the deepest child category.


=GORILLA_RANKHIST("2021Q1", "US", "B00YD545CC", "All")
=GORILLA_RANKHIST("2021-05", "US", "B00YD545CC", "All")

To get quarterly data use the format YYYYQ1, YYYYQ2, YYYYQ3, YYYYQ4 as the preset period.

To get monthly data, use the format YYYY-MM as the preset period.

For Gorilla Agency, the formulas will start with the seller ID:

=GORILLA_RANKHIST("SELLER ID", "last 30 days", A2:A100)
=GORILLA_RANKHIST("SELLER ID", "custom", A2:A5, "US", "top", "2021-06-01", "2021-06-30")
=GORILLA_RANKHIST("SELLER ID", "this month", "B00YD545CC", "JP", "child")
=GORILLA_RANKHIST("SELLER37432", "2021Q1", "US", "B00YD545CC", "All")
=GORILLA_RANKHIST("SELLER37432", "2021-05", "US", "B00YD545CC", "All")
