Update: Homepage Algorithm

November 4th, 2008 by brandontreb

We are currently in the process of creating a great algorithm for the front page to display the freshest of iphone apps.  Please bear with us at this time as you may see some wonky results displayed on the front page during this time.

We have been putting on our Math Caps and doing some (nerd voice) normalization of all of this data.  If you are an uber nerd and have a great suggestion for the homepage algorithm, please email it to [email protected]. If accepted, you will be rewarded (it will be sweet I promise).

The factors involved in frontpage freshness will include:

  – Age of the app (on freshapps.com)

  – Amount of freshness  (date and time of freshness included)

  – Amount of comments (date and time of comments included)

  – Magic

If you have questions, suggestions, or complaints please email us or comment on this post…
