Genius for apps

Anyone know how the Genius for apps makes suggestions? I'm assuming it automaticly looks at apps that others that have bought the same apps as you have bought... Or perhaps Apple has some super secret e-mail where you can tell them which apps correspond to yours

My guess is it's done by high ranking apps that have similar keywords
