Stupid PageRank Articles, Part 3
Another stupid PageRank press release:
And this one (kudos to ciaran_h):
Google Ranking Show FresnoStateNews as Among Top News Sites
An objective analysis by Google, the Web's most popular search engine, now ranks FresnoStateNews.com as one of the most important collegiate news services on the Web.
Google uses a sophisticated analysis, called PageRank™, that ranks Web sites based on the nature and quality of links to that particular site. According to Google, "important, high-quality sites receive a higher PageRank, which Google remembers each time it conducts a search."
Google reports their page ranking indicates whether people on the web consider a page to be a high-quality site worth checking out. Google itself does not evaluate or endorse websites.
FresnoStateNews.com now ranks 18th (editors note: As of Oct. 28, 2002, we have climbed to #11) in the Google analysis in the category of "College and University News Services."
This is getting to be a very stupid trend.
