Seeing tag rankings

Tag rankings are determined by an algorithm that takes into account factors such as the popularity, trendiness, and user engagement of a story. This also includes the relevance of the tags used and when the story was last updated by the author. If the engagement of the story increases over time, its ranking will move to a better rank on the Hot List.

If your story is marked Mature but you are under the age of 17, your rankings will not appear to you on your profile or on the Hot Lists for ranked tags. However, readers who are 17 years old and up will be able to see your story's rankings on your profile and on the Hot Lists. For more information about Wattpad's age requirements please see this support article.
