Improving Page Ranking For Search Engines
Page ranking is an important component for information retrieval system. It is used to measure the importance
and behavior of web pages. This paper reviews the basic page ranking algorithms being used in different search engines. The
main focus is on critical evaluation of Pagerank algorithm used by Google search engine. As pointed out by Sergey Brin and
Larry Page, the existing Pagerank algorithm used by Google search engine has no provision of link visibility and link
position. In this paper, we propose a new algorithm which considers the factors of link visibility and link position to
calculate the page rank. The results have been studied for our proposed algorithm and compared with the basic existing
Keywords— Pagerank; Visibility; Position; Search Engine.
