Github Trending Page Shows Different Rankings Depends On Login Status

Hi all,

Today I noticed an interesting feature of Github Trending Page, that is, it shows different repo rankings depends on my login status.

For example, the first screenshot shows the ranking I see when I log off (with cache cleared), and the second screenshot shows the ranking I see when I logged in. They are captured within 1 minute but you can see item 2 - 4 (and more) are clearly different.

 

I am wondering why Github has such a figure here, and do other users see the same rankings as I do (when I logged out/in)? 

Thanks,

Roger
