Just when I thought that the concept of the PageRank algorithm was near commonplace, so basic and well understood, that even monkeys could summarize it, along comes a (now removed due to total humiliation) post by SmashingHub.com (cached image). I am 99% sure it’s not a joke.
Now, I understand that the full PR Algo paper written by Page and Brin is a lengthy one, but surely people understand the basics of it, right? Surely NO ONE would think that PageRank 1 means ‘The First Page of Google Results’ and PageRank 10 means ‘The 10th Page Of Google Results.’ Right? RIGHT?!
You can see the full “article” (Google cache) by clicking on the image.
So, you ‘d think that no one would see this right? Well, it was on Digg, which further reinforces my assertion that ‘Digg is Dying.’
