Isn't Story Rank a little weird?

Hey everyone!
As I was writing a new story, that only has 24 reads, I noticed it was #916 in Romance. I have another story that has 16k reads and switch between #140 and #200.
The thing is, the difference isn’t huge. Shoudln’t it be more?
Or maybe there isn’t much Romance stories?

Yeah, weird.
Do you know how the algorithm works for story rank?

nope i dont

It depends on when do you get the reads.
For example if you get 20 reads for your first story in the next few hours, but you get only 15 on the other one, your first story can reach a higher rank even if it has 44 reads total and the other has 16K something.

Sometimes there are glitches but I think in general, the rankings are determined based on how quickly you gain those reads rather than the total number.

I never understood ranks, and I’ve been an Episode author for 3 years… I don’t understand them till this day :frowning: But, I do think they’re kind of inaccurate sometimes.
