I really liked the vulnerability ranking that would be listed at the bottom of a page, if a vulnerability was mentioned. I can really focus on education when I can see the real-world meaning of it, and seeing how the vulnerabilities discussed are impactful enough to be on lists, really showed me how important they were, and gave me the motivation to keep learning!
