Question DetailsAsked on 2/27/2012

My company serves clients in all 50 states, how do member grades affect local listings?

I understand companies are ranked according to a variety of criteria including overall grade (A, B, C) and number of reports submitted.

If my company is a national company listed in all Angie's market areas, do my overall quantity of reports affect listings in local markets where I have few or no reports? For example, if I have 10 "A" reviews in Boston, 10 "A" reviews in NY and one "A" review in Los Angeles would I rank ahead of a Los Angeles competitor with 5 "A" reviews or would my profile be ranked as if it had only 1 review in LA and be listed behind a competitor with total fewer reviews?

Sorry for the delay in response!

Here's what I've gotten back:

"It depends on if there areindividual companies registered in all those markets, like a franchise. If so, then yes, the company in LA would only show 1 report and sort accordingly.

If it is one ID acrossnational markets, all his reports and grades would count toward sort order."
