What makes a product go #1?

As the title says, what does Product Hunt consider when rating the #1 product? For example, my product is currently #2, with 80 more upvotes and 60 more comments than the current #1 product. Any other inputs we should consider while there's still time to try to win? Check out our launch: https://www.producthunt.com/post...


You are currently ranked #1 🎉

Launching soon!
Sometimes they subtract upvotes if the upvotes all originate from one website, or are from new accounts. Or known pay for vote accounts etc. Aka bots

I feel like you need to tell us what’s up!

I think this is the usefulness of the product. If a product is useful then it has value to users and the value of being the number one product

Not sure about other cases, but in this case having a creator of the product asking "What makes a product go #1?" can bump your product to #1 ;)
