Hello Maurizio,

First of all, please not that, there is no public description of the current algorithms used by the CouchSearch.

Hopefully the information below will cover both questions:

Experience: Takes more into account the amount of friends, references and vouches.

Relevance: Takes into account other factors such as the number of couch requests a member has received, verification status.

Also, you can read about the Old Sorting algorithm here: http://www.couchsurfing.org/group_read.html?gid=5110&post=3835867

Please let us know if you have any follow up questions.
