Sorting issue on Resorts section

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I was looking at the Resorts section and noticed that the Best Rated didn't seem to track and then clicked on Most Popular which REALLY doesn't track.  

 

 

I'd think 1 review would be "least popular", unless of course you factored in NO reviews.  In any case, I'd expect the MOST reviews to be at the top.

It's supposed to be rated off various factors weighted together like number of reviews, recency, and the overall average score. The problem we have is that there are so many small areas with little to no reviews that it messes with the system. I'll have to see if there is anything we can do to improve it.

Well, how does Most Popular differ from Highest Rated?  

 

And how does Most Popular produce the following order:

 

  1. One review, three stars
  2. Two reviews, two stars
  3. Three reviews, 3.5 stars 

 

at the TOP of the ratings for Most Popular?

 

Then at number 6, Snowbird with 22 reviews and 4 stars?

Sorry, Highest Rated was what I was talking about. I am unsure of how most popular is generated. I'm looking into it. It is definitely in need of help to be more accurate.

Is Stowe at the Top?

If not, we know the algorithm needs work.

We went through this a year or so ago on the ratings. Bottom line was that some of them didn't make sense and nobody knew how they worked.  Not sure about most popular.
