Can anyone please explain me by which criteria are displayed first four gadgets in Live gallery search results, i can't figure it out. It's not by rating, not by downloads, not by reviews, not by date added and i can't see that tags have any affect...

We use a ranking algorithm to decide which four items show up for each search result. The exact algorithm is not something that we feel comfortable publicly talking about at this time though.

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.
