What Is Google Page Ranking Algorithm And Its Uses

Page Rank is a link analysis algorithm, named after Larry Page. Page Rank is a trademark of Google and the Page Rank process has been patented. Instead of assigning the patent to Google, it is assigned to Stanford University.  Page Rank Algorithm is a sequence of instructions quietly used by the Search Engines to calculate the search results i.e. SERP made for a specific keyword. Hence, priority is given to different factors like Keyword Strength, Domain Strength, Inbound link Score, user data, content quality score, manual boost, etc.
