Do In App Sales contribute to your app's store ranking?

Title says it all really I'm hoping that sales of in app items (like level packs) actually count toward your app's ranking in the App store, but I don't know. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks!

It does affect it in Top Grossing. Look at TapTap Revenge 3, it's a free app with only in-app content that is on the list. Eliminate made it too when it was released as free with in-app content.

But it doesn't help your ranking in the General Top 100 (Free or paid) since that is based on downloads.
