Ranking web pages Web pages are not equally “important” www.joe-schmoe.com  v  www.stanford.edu Inlinks as votes www.stanford.edu  has 23,400 inlinks www.joe-schmoe.com  has 1 inlink Are all inlinks equal? Recursive question!

Simple recursive formulation Each link’s vote is proportional to the  importance of its source page If page  P  with importance  x  has  n  outlinks,  each link gets  x/n  votes

Simple “flow” model The web in 1839 Yahoo M’soft Amazon y a m y/2 y/2 a/2 a/2 m y   =  /2 +  /2 a   =  /2 +  m m  =  /2

Solving the flow equations 3 equations, 3 unknowns, no constants No unique solution All solutions equivalent modulo scale factor Additional constraint forces uniqueness y+a+m = 1 y = 2/5, a = 2/5, m = 1/5 Gaussian elimination method works for small  examples, but we need a better method for  large graphs

Matrix formulation Matrix  M  has one row and one column for  each web page Suppose page j has n outlinks If j  !  i, then M ij =1/n Else M ij =0 M  is a  column   stochastic matrix Columns sum to 1 Suppose  r  is a vector with one entry per web  page r i  is the importance score of page i Call it the  rank vector

Example Suppose page j links to 3 pages, including i i j M r r = i 1/3

Eigenvector formulation The flow equations can be written  =  Mr So the rank vector is an eigenvector of the  stochastic web matrix In fact, its first or principal eigenvector, with  corresponding eigenvalue 1
