Why do the streaming ranks change on my BDSradio report when I change the airplay parameters?

The streaming ranks on every BDSradio report are "relative" ranks versus "absolute" ranks. A "relative" rank is the rank for a song in relation to the other songs on that particular report. An "absolute" rank is the rank for a song in relation to all songs. So if you are viewing a BDSradio report and change something that changes the group of songs you're seeing on the report (like adding in Recurrents and Gold titles, for example, or changing the date range) then the Ranks will change accordingly.
