How do your sales stack up with the various online book stores?

We've been selling our e-book titles online for a year now and have some sales data to chew over. I was wondering if anyone else can comment on how the various stores perform for them? Do you get much better results from one than the other?

The titles are health information about Diabetes, Hormone Replacement Therapy, Weight Loss, Thyroid Disorders etc.

Also, do you get results from stores I haven't listed? The books are formatted (not fixed) but they don't suit the Smashwords mold.

Wannabee are those sales results in the graph representative of world wide ebook sales?

I see you are in country NSW, and Sony doesn't sell into Australia directly, rather Sony directs users to Borders and Angus and Robertson's online sites - so are Australian figures represented in the graph?

Thanks for the reply LL. Those are all sales from those stores to wherever they sell. We have worldwide rights for all our e-book titles.
Amazon and iTunes' figures on the graph are combined. ie US, GB, CA, EU, AU. I'm not at work so I cant check right now, but from memory Sony's reporting doesnt show territory. I thought that was because they only sell to the US. Kobo has just started selling to Canada but I haven't seen the report differentiate.
Google Plus has been a real disappointment. Kobo outsells Google.

I have not graphed my sales, but I think it would look exactly like that one, except maybe more weighted towards Amazon.

Swap Apple and B&N, and that would roughly line up with my experience.

The only outlet where my novel sells at all well is B&N. I'd be dancing in the street if I could bring my sales up at other outlets to the B&N totals. Keep in mind, though, even my B&N sales would seem moderate compared to the number of books many people sell.
