Score

Question: How is the list score/rank determined?
Answer: The score and rank of a list is determined by people's interaction with your list including views, comments, votes, and sharing. The more of it, the higher the score. The algorithm is simple, but top secret. There is a decay on the score, so over time it will decrease if people stop interacting with it.
