What exactly decides "you might also like"? Also tagging problem

So the KYM database’s glorious image gallery.. But i don’t really understand what exactly decides suggestions..
You’ll say “course cause of tagging” maybe. Well your answer is true, because if you don’t tag anything to your picture, you won’t get any suggestion. Oh wait. It only valid in profile uploads. It may also depends on upvote or popularity.

But here is a KYM in a nutshell. Popular tags like “gif” always show popular ones from gifs like that “Potter shooting Voldemort”. It always suggests the same things over and over.

Lets take a look at the images which don’t have any kind of tag. Here, here also here.
As you see. Every low rated “reaction faces” images have same suggestions.

Asking again:
What the hell decides the suggestions? Will tagging show us something different from ponies, the things that already have been shown a millions of times or unrelated stuff?

Yeah, sometimes suggestions are weird.

Once I was viewing that Sonic ’06 image in the Ruined Childhood gallery…. and at least HALF the images were to do with FIND THE COMPUTER ROOM!

The reason it makes no sense? Vector does not appear in Sonic ‘06. I don’t think that Sonic ’06 image is tagged, either.

Ponies come up on almost every image in that section, and to be honest it’s obviously inaccurate. I’ve heard other people who aren’t bronies who’ve complained, so surely it’s not just me and is a fairly common occurrence.
