  • The original PageRank algorithm for improving the ranking of search-query results computes a single vector, using the link structure of the Web, to capture the relative “importance” of Web pages, independent of any particular search query. [...] Key Method For ordinary keyword search queries, we compute the topicsensitive PageRank scores for pages satisfying the query using the topic of the query keywords.Expand Abstract
