PageRate: counting web users' votes

Zhu, Jianhan; Hong, Jun and Hughes, John G. (2001). PageRate: counting web users' votes. In: Proceedings of the 12th ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia (Hypertext'01), 14-18 Aug 2001, Arhus, Denmark.



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.
