They're not ranking revenue, as far as I can tell, they're ranking sales. Not all games sell at the same price. Either way, free games don't 'sell' so they don't show up on the ranking.
The weekly is revenue (source is valve themselves, it was linked in another reply), the instant ones you see inside steam when you run it I think is sales, although its not specified.

And Torchlight 2 being $10 instead of $20 only reinforces the point I was making. It brought in more revenue at $10 a copy than Black Ops 2 did at $60 a copy.
Which is frigging AWESOME

I'm not sure GMG sales would count here, since those are keys redeemed on Steam, not Steam purchases.
Surely B2B sales are included though?
Since the weekly numbers from steam are NOT sales, no its NOT included. The weekly are revenue (see one of the other replies in this thread for link to source, its valve themselves saying its revenue).

So since its NOT sales, it can't possibly count any other source except direct steam purchases, since it could be any other price from any other retailer. Doesn't count amazon, GMG, all those massive sales from THQ humble bundle, etc.
