How is the order of the listings determined?

Each listing has points associated with it. The total listing points determines the order listings are shown in, starting from highest and going down to lowest. Total listing points is the sum of natural listing points, and listing points entered by the tutor.

There are 2 factors that determine what the natural listing points are: 1. When your listing was activated, and 2. When you last updated your listing. The dates are placed in a formula that calculates the natural points (previously referred to as "priority rank") for your listing.

The longer you have had a listing on, the higher potential natural points for your listing. However, there is a slight preference given to the last update date, so newer listings may have more natural points than older listing if the older listing has not been updated.

To maximize your natural points, it is important to regularly update your listing.

Listing points are entered by the tutor. There is a full page of information available on listing points on the tutor's page.
