Does updating my game drop the popularity ratings?

My game was getting high in the list Most popular free HTML5 horror game. I was on the 4th place 2 days ago. Now I am dropped to the bottom of the list.

I've have just uploaded a new version, after debugging the downloaded version, could that have anything to do with it? Or did I do it wrong maybe?


Updating your game has no effect on how you're ranked. 

Then I might do it wrong. 

I delete the old zip and replace it with a new one, with a higher version number. Is that right? Or does that seem like a complete new project?


Updating the files on a project is not the same as creating a new project. I don't think you're doing anything wrong, popularity ranking changes over time from all kinds of factors. The files you upload is not one of them, so it's probably unrelated to you change in position.

Thanks. I think it just shifts much more quickly than I expected. :p
