Gravity Calculation:First of all :
An individual affiliate can never add more than 1 point to the gravity score.
if an affiliate has made a sale yesterday: adds 0.96^0 = 1 point to grav.
if an affiliate has made a sale 2 days ago: adds 0.96^1 = 0.96 points to grav.
if an affiliate has made a sale n days ago: adds 0.96^(n-1) points to grav.
n can not be greater than 56 (8 weeks)
so if xxx made a sale yesterday for a product. (1 point)
and yyy has made 10 sales yesterday. (still 1 point)
and zzz has made a sale 2 days ago (0.96 points)
the product will have 2.96 gravity score.higher gravity means more sales?
xxx has made 1000 sales for product A yesterday and is the only affiliate promoting it. (gravity for product A = 1)
50 different affiliates have made 1 sale each, for product B yesterday. (gravity for product B = 50)
(i am rather a newbie please correct me if im wrong)
