Google PageRank, Meet Yahoo! Web Rank

13 May 2004

I swear, Google and Yahoo! should just merge, all they do is copy eachother. I’ll still take Google overYahoo! anyday. Yahoo! has launched a system to show the “Web Rank” popularity of pages viewed by those using its toolbar. It’ssimilar to Google Toolbar‘s long-standing PageRank (PR) meter,and it brings with it some of the same potential problems.The Google Toolbar PR meterreflects how popular Google believes a page is, based on the number and quality of links that point at it. Soundsgreat. But adding this meter was one of the worst things Google ever did.
