PHP Functions

Function: google_pagerank
By dave

Note! This function is not a built-in PHP function. To use it, you will need to copy the source code (located at the bottom of this page) into your script.

google_pagerank -- Calculates the Google PageRank of a specified URL

Description

string google_pagerank( string URL )

What is Google PageRank?
PageRank is a family of algorithms for assigning numerical weightings to hyperlinked documents (or web pages) indexed by a search engine. Its properties are much discussed by search engine optimization (SEO) experts. The PageRank system is used by the popular search engine Google to help determine a page's relevance or importance. As Google puts it:

PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page's value. Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves "important" weigh more heavily and help to make other pages "important."

This function will calculate and return the Google PageRank of the specified input URL as a string.
