Why are stations with fewer listeners than me ranked above my station?

AudioRealm does not purely base the order of stations on the number of connected listeners. We are working on new sorting algorithms that use a combination of the following data:

  • Prefers stations that allow a direct tune-in via AudioRealm
  • Prefers stations that have uploaded the 120x60 logo
  • The number of visitors that have added your station as a preset or favorite station, with bonus points for visitors that set your station as their auto-tune station.
  • We also rank stations based on the visitors capability. If a visitor does not have the right plugins installed to play a station the station might be ranked lower.

We are constantly working on improving our ranking strategy so the exact working of the algorithm will change quite a bit over the next couple of months.
