After reading Linked one has to ask the obvious: What is the exact distribution of Google PageRanks and does Google publicise this data?
Clearly, there is renormalization wrt. search terms going on. That's why the PageRank actually works both for rare search terms and common ones. An exotic or topic specific search accesses a subnet within which PageRank in itself makes sense.Posted by Claus at December 18, 2002 01:29 PM
