Google is by a country mile the most popular search engine in the world. It’s popular because it seems to rank pages so accurately and quickly time and time again. The secret to its success is its top secret Page Rank Algorithm.

As we all know, a website is a pretty nifty thing to have for a myriad of different reasons. But the truth is that it’s worth is derived from the people that surf it, and if no one is surfing it, then it becomes useless. So who’s the biggest website referrer?

The goal of this document is to help you see that there is more to high ranking than getting links.
