## Page Rank Numerical Example

Let us try with a simple numerical example. We are going to us spreadsheet to compute the page rank. Suppose we have 6 web pages with name A to F. We want to rank them in term of importance. Page A has only outbound links. Page F has only inbound links. Page B, C, D and E has both outbound and inbound links. We also keep 1 self link, that is a link from a page to itself (i.e. anchor). For our simple experiment, we keep the total number of links constant at 6 links. Our goal is to compute page rank for each web page.

Web Page name |
Number of self link |
Number of outbound links (external links) |
Number of inbound links |
Total number of links |

A |

B |
