Q: What are flagged venues? Are those venues taking part in the visits counting or in the ranking process?

A: There are several reasons for why a POI is being flagged (for example, lack of foot traffic information, dense area, etc.). This causes unreliable visits data, which Placer prefers not to take into consideration. Therefore, flagged entities’ traffic is not being counted in visits aggregations.
