On the advanced search for titles (https://www.imdb.com/search/title), users can sort by popularity. However - in contrast to other fields like keywords, number of votes and plot - there's no button explaining what popularity means and what users should/can fill in. Since most users don't use IMDbPro, they very probably have no idea what it means. Can a staffer please add such a question mark button?
