In case you are interested: Trust flow shows how trusted the sites that link to these lenders are, while citation flow shows how popular the sites are that link to the lenders. Both numbers go from 0-100 but are logarithmic, so the higher you go the more difficult it is to go even higher. The estimated traffic numbers should be directionally right, but take them with a grain of salt.
