Why do some profiles or tracks display on top of Search results? Why
Our Search function is dependent on an algorithm we call 'DiscoRank' (short for Discovery Ranking). DiscoRank pulls the search results based upon a variety of variables such as the wording of your search, the content of your track and profile descriptions and the popularity of profiles.
All of these factors work together to give the most popular and relevant results for a search. This is why, for example, if an exact Profile URL was put into search (maybe your own), there may be profiles which have a wider network of popularity which will rank higher than an exact word match.
