An analogous piece of software; notionally, one that does a lot of noisy  crunching . The hackish senses of &quot;engine&quot; are actually close to its original, pre-Industrial-Revolution sense of a skill, clever device, or instrument (the word is cognate to &quot;ingenuity&quot;). This sense had not been completely eclipsed by the modern connotation of power-transducing machinery in  Charles Babbage 's time, which explains why he named the stored-program computer that he designed in 1844 the &quot; Analytical Engine &quot;.  (1996-05-31) ] </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul>

  21. 21. Appendix Click for demo: PageRank PageRank is a numeric value that represents how important a page is on the web. Google figures that when one page links to another page, it is effectively casting a vote for the other page. The more votes that are cast for a page, the more important the page must be. Also, the importance of the page that is casting the vote determines how important the vote itself is. Google calculates a page's importance from the votes cast for it. How important each vote is is taken into account when a page's PageRank is calculated.  PageRank is Google's way of deciding a page's importance. It matters because it is one of the factors that determines a page's ranking in the search results. It isn't the only factor that Google uses to rank pages, but it is an important one. Calculate the PageRank To calculate the PageRank for a page, all of its inbound links are taken into account. These inbound links are the links from within the site and the links from outside the site.  The equation that calculates PageRank of a page is as follows -  PR(A) = (1-d) + d(PR(t1)/C(t1) + ... + PR(tn)/C(tn))  This equation is the original one that was published when PageRank was being developed. In the equation,  't1 - tn' = pages linking to page A,  C' = number of outbound links that a page has  'd' = a damping factor, that is usually set to 0.85.  So the equation simplifies to  PageRank of a Page A = 0.15 + 0.85 * (A &quot;share&quot; of the PageRank of every page that links to it)  &quot;share&quot; = the linking page's PageRank divided by the number of outbound links on the page.
