"Grade-A Rice Bowl" article shows as "related" on damn near every board!

Just found it on the Cookware board. Is it because it's a CHOW article? It sure doesn't seem 'related' to anything.

  1. Well, it shows up as related on this thread, so the algorithm is correct occasionally.

    Is it as annoying as the "Trending now" threads listing years old columns by long ago fired columnists?

        Yep, the Related module first and foremost tries to display articles that are a good match to the current page, but it does also fall back to display popular pages if nothing related is found.

          Popular? No one has replied to it.

            The popularity algorithm includes a few measures, but pageviews play a big part. I'm guessing you drove a few more clicks towards it here. :)
