How are user lists chosen to be linked on an actor's page ?

On the actor's pages there are user lists .... how are they chosen to be linked ?

Many of them are just lists of hundreds / thousands of names with that particular actor one of many and yet lists that are about the career of a particular actor  with that actor's name prominent in the title  are omitted. 

Is it purely random ?

Hello hello @SkiSix ,

 

I can confirm that the related user lists displayed on our name and title pages are not 'purely' random.

 

Though we are not able to fully share in detail, please note that the algorithms take into account several measures of popularity based on behavior of IMDb users.

Algorithm or no .. it sure seems pretty "random" .... thanks however, for your reply. 

I  cannot fathom why a list of several thousand actors names that someone likes is linked and a list that is about films by that one actor with his name in the list title and with comments about each film is not linked.  The majority of linked lists consist of random things that the actor has in common with many other actors ... when or how they died...that they have dark hair or are bald .. that they appeared as a character actor in some tv show  etc.
