If you are not aware tinder ranks your photo's based on a scalar "score" value. This score is hidden away but is actually accessible to anyone with a computer. You can use these scores to get an exact measurement of how well your Tinder Photo's are performing.
I only know that rank is the order Tinder will display your smart photos. The rank is most likely defined by the score, giving you a very accurate measurement of a photos success.
Tinder Photo Score: Tutorial
- Open & log in to Tinder on your browser. Make sure you are on your matches page. Hit F12 or ctrl+shift+i to bring up the inspector. Make sure you are on the "Network" tab.
- Refresh the page, and from the list click one with the word "profile" in the front. Make sure you are accessing the "Response" tab on the right.
- Copy the data (ctrl+a then ctrl+c) and paste it into the website: https://jsonformatter.curiousconcept.com/ This will format the data to be more readable. Hit process, then either download or copy and paste the text into notepad (or any word processor. This data contains information about your profile.
- Inside notepad, ctrl+f and search "profile". It should take you to your profile data, where you will be able to find your photo data. In these, you can find the url to each one of your photos. Save these url's somewhere (either in notepad or paste to your browser in separate tabs). If you have 5 photos, you should have 5 urls. Paste them into a browser to ensure they're working.
- Go back to Tinder, and repeat step 2 & 3 but select the entry with "matches" instead of "profile". This matches data contains information about all your matches
- The final step is to copy your photo URL from your profile data and Ctrl+F (find) the url in the matches data. That will take you to the first instance in your match data where someone swiped that photo. This is where you find the meta data of the photo itself. Repeat this step for each of your photo URLs. Record the results, post them for us!
You may not be able to find data on a photo if you don't have enough matches. The matches in the JSON sometimes return your matches photo data and not yours.
Some things to clear up in the video: arrays start at 0 so a rank of "2" means it's your 3rd best photo.
