Who does the rankings?

How come in Islam whenever something happens it's always at "The 98th most important Shiite Shrine" or the "17th holiest Sunni vacation hotspot." Who does the rankings for these things? Is there a book on them? Is it like Zaggat's? Can you get an upgrade if you bring in a new Imam or someone else important dies there?

As far as I know Judaism doesn't have a 184th most important place Moses may or may not have gotten a gyro. Islam does.
