I came across a very good article on google pagerank on While it's not everything you need to know, it is a very good starting off place if you are trying to begin unravelling the google machine, or any other search machine.

Anyway, check it out if you've been looking to learn more about how this search engine stuff works, it's not easy to figure out, but the more of these real research type articles you read, the less haze there is.

It covers the following categories:

The PageRank Algorithm
The Implementation of PageRank
The Effect of Inbound Links
The Effect of Outbound Links
The Effect of the Number of Pages
The Distribution of PageRank
The Yahoo Bonus
Additional Factors Influencing PageRank
PageRank and Themes
PR0 - PageRank 0

All very interesting, although technical reading, but that's the nature of the beast, Google isn't going to publish a clear document on how to do this kind of work now are they?
