In the Careers CV, there is a zone with one or more "top x% for [tag]". http://i.stack.imgur.com/6Q9Jz.jpg

What are the conditions / rules for a tag to appears in this zone? While I answer quite a lot in the abap and sap tags in SO, I gave only a few answers in java. However, only the java tag appears (and I'm pretty sure that I would be better placed in the top % of abap than in java).

I could not find the rules, or how I can find the same info on my profile.
I also checked that I did not ask the top% not to be displayed for these tags. This is not the case. The tag simply doesn't appear.

They've provided some information about this before, but I'm not sure why you wouldn't be falling above the 30th percentile anyway - unless perhaps there's so few Careers users with those tags that the percentiles are extremely skewed. You're the third-highest answerer in sap though, so that doesn't seem too likely. – Tim Stone Feb 2 '12 at 12:39

There needs to be at least 500 votes for a tag from people on Careers. If you visit the tags page on SO and search for , you will see there are only 470ish votes total for the tag, and likely not all of those votes are on Careers.

Sorry to dredge up an old answer, but where exactly is the vote count you are referring to? – RyPeck Sep 27 '13 at 18:21
