Does this make any sense? Weight Calc....

    Site 1 : low traffic, ~55 pages index in the API, PR4

    Site 2 : easily 20x the traffic of site 1, ~4000 pages indexed in the API, PR4

    Why do these have the approximately the same weight?

    Do we have any idea what counts here? Is it just PR? I would think pages and traffic would cause a drastic difference, but I'm not seeing it at all.

    Well, how many variables go into the calculation?

    It was my impression that PR, indexed pages and traffic all played a part in the algo. But if the algo is secret, then no matter what I post it will all be wild guesses.

    The algo is something Shawn is not going to disclose

    well, at the rsik of confusing the matter further.

    We did an extremely detailed analysis of 10 sites that had a serp rank of 1, 4, 8, and 12 for the same exact search term.

    The results were surprising in that the # 1 ranked listing had fewer backlinks (in comparison) both in quanity and quality and less PR5+ than the number 8 ranked page. A keyword density also showed the page 1 ranked page had weaker density for the search term. Both the #1 and # 8 ranked page were in existence for approx the same length of time.
    We looked at many other factors too, and the bottom line is: "it don't make sense to anyone outside Goofle."

    go figure. That is why it is a secret algo, we can't figure it out.

    best regards

    This is not about google. It's about the co-op network. Totally different things. Totally different algos.

    Now site #1, which had 25,000 weight just dropped to 1600, still I see no changes. Fryman, if you think you can really give me any sort of hint, here is the domain : spec\sa\ppeal <dot> net

    Look at it, it went from (approx) 1600 -> 30,000 -> 25,000 -> 1600.

    All for no apparent reason. That quite sucks when you recalc and get 1600 from 25,000. I'm recalcing intermittently hoping to get the 25k back.

    with 1700 pages in Google your weight seems correct

    Well, I was wondering if you could explain the large fluctuation, from 1600 to 30,000 as well. =)
