Got a PageRank of 2

Saturday, April 28, 2007

Finally, my blog is a little famous now. The Goggle PageRank of my blog is now 2, increased by 2 points (earlier it was 0... :-( ). Eventually, I have started getting some traffic from Google.

Thanks to all those who linked to my blog and the people who regularly visit (sometimes read too... :-) ) my blog.

A little about Google PageRank:

"PageRank is a link analysis algorithm that assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of documents, such as the World Wide Web, with the purpose of "measuring" its relative importance within the set. The algorithm may be applied to any collection of entities with reciprocal quotations and references. The numerical weight that it assigns to any given element E is also called the PageRank of E and denoted by PR(E)." - source: Wikipedia

The PageRank determines the position of a website on search results. It is measured on a 10-point scale. The higher the page-rank the better is the placement of the website on the search results.

PageRank is calculated on the basis of the number of votes a site gets from other websites, ie. how many sites link to that site. A link from page A to page B is counted as a vote for B by A. But, apart from the volume of links, Google also analyzes the quality of the pages which cast the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves "important" weigh more heavily and help to make other pages "important".
