Ever wonder how our ranking systems work? What that number at the corner of your profile page actually means? And how to make your way up to that number-one spot? Keep on reading — we broke it down for you!
Pornstars and Amateur Models
Once you're on the homepage, click on the "Pornstars" tab. On this page, you can now see where you rank every month among Pornstars and Amateur Models alike. If you're a Model and would like to see where you stand compared specifically to other Models on the site, select "Amateur Models" (view in photo below). The same applies to Pornstars who would like to see where they rank among other Pornstars.
In case you haven’t noticed, if you're an Amateur Model, we added a new Model Rank at the top of your profile. If you scroll to it, you’ll see a breakdown of your weekly, monthly, last month, and yearly rank. (Update Oct. 28: You might notice that your rank has recently changed, it is now based on your performance excluding earnings.)
If you're a Professional Model, meaning you've done studio work, you'll have a Pornstar Rank at the top of your profile page. Similar to Model Rank, the Pornstar Rank will be based on the performance of all your videos and other metrics, so you may notice changes to your Pornstar Rank in the following weeks. We'll be announcing it on Twitter (@PornhubHelp), so keep your eyes peeled!
For those of you who sell videos, here are the two ranking systems we have in place.
Ever notice that number at the top left corner of your profile page right under photo? That’s your Modelhub Rank. It’s calculated daily by an algorithm that takes your performance and engagement on the site into account. So once you start selling content, you’ll see a number pop up on your profile page. For more information on the Modelhub Rank, check out our Pornhub Help page.
Top 20 Earners
We post the Top 20 Earners every month and it is based purely on sales for that month and is totally separate from the Modelhub Rank. For example, the Top 20 Earners in July are those who made the most sales in dollars during the month of July. Once the list is finalized at the end of the month, the Top 20 will get a monetary prize ranging from $100 to $1,000.
If you’d like see your Top Earner status, check out your Modelhub Settings page.
If you're curious about your Modelhub Ranking and want to keep a close eye on where you stand, you can also view all this information on your Pornhub Model page. Scroll down to Model under your profile pic, click on More Stats & Tools, and then click on Settings. Here you'll find your Daily and Monthly Ranking annd if you're eligible for the Monthly Contest.
