Introduction Understanding PageRank ( Algorithm ) Search Optimization Applications Pagerank Advantages and Limitations ConclusionPR (A) = (1-d) + d (PR (T1) / C (T1) + ... + PR (Tn) / C (Tn))Where,PR(A) is the PageRank of page APR(Ti) is the PageRank of pages Ti which link to page AC(Ti) is the number of outbound links on page Ti andd is a damping factor which can be set between 0 and 1In simple terms,PageRank for a given page = Initial PageRank + (total ranking power ÷number of outbound links) +...The second version,PR (A) = (1-d) + d (PR (T1) / C (T1) + ... + PR (Tn) / C(Tn)) N

  10. 10. Introduction Understanding PageRank ( Computation of PageRank ) Search Optimization Applications Pagerank Advantages and Limitations Conclusion Consider an imaginary web of 3 web pages. And the inbound and outbound link structure is as shown in the figure. The calculations can be done by following method :PR(A) = 0.5 + 0.5 PR(C) PR(B) = 0.5 + 0.5 (PR(A) / 2) PR(C) = 0.5 + 0.5 ((PR(A) / 2 )+ PR (B)) = 0.5 + (0.5*1) =1 = 0.5 + 0.5 (1/2) = 0.5 + 0.5 (1/2 + 0.75) = 0.5 + (0.5 * 0.5) = 0.5 + 0.5 (1.25) = 0.5 + 0.25 = 0.5 + 0.625 = 0.75 = 1.125
