Release of Author Rankings

Eloquens is proud to announce the release of “Author Rankings” in Category Pages and throughout the website as a whole. This feature was developed to democratically to give extra visibility to our high performing authors in specific categories, and to reward those who build value by regularly sharing and contributing on the site.

Authors having published in a given category will now be ranked according to the performance of their Best Practices in this specific section, which you can find at the bottom of each category page.

The algorithm used is made of: a maximum of 1/3 of historic performance + 2/3 of performance over the last 30 days.

The Algorithm is a combination of the following elements:

  • Downloads
  • Sales
  • Strength of Reviews & Ratings
  • Number of Publications
  • Participation in discussion feeds

The algorithm is refreshed every 10 minutes.

Here is a screenshot of an Author Ranking in a specific category page:
