The Website Grader

I stumbled upon the Website Grader through Patricia's blog, Communication Exchange. I was reading her post about how her website was graded and I got really curious and tried it. The results were surprising, I never expected a high grade, I was praying for at least an average grade, lol. Here's the report.

B. Google PageRank: 3

"Google 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. In essence, 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." - From Google
