We propose a PageRate method to give Web pages on a Web site ratings based on the Web link structure and user usage data, which are both recorded in the Web log files. The method is an improvement over PageRank [1, 6]. PageRate can be used to objectively evaluate the importance of pages. A PageClustering algorithm is proposed to cluster Web pages with similar incoming links and ratings. The results are used to integrate with search results returned by search engines.
