Yahoo! Launches Yahoo! Webrank

SMS Text

Yahoo! has released a new page ranking measurement by the name of Yahoo! Webrank. Yahoo! Webrank primarily is driven by data submitted from users who have the newest version of the Yahoo! Companion Toolbar with the advanced features turned on.

Google PageRank is a measure of link popularity. Yahoo! Webrank is primarily based on web surfer traffic. The new Yahoo! Webrank operates similar to Alexa (or how Direct Hit worked in the past.) One interesting feature of this new Yahoo! Webrank feature is that they are using click data to help Yahoo! Slurp spider new popular content. View Webrank FAQ’s or Download the new Yahoo! Companion.
