ApproxRank: Estimating Rank for a Subgraph
Abstract— Customized semantic query answering, personalized search, focused crawlers and localized search engines frequently focus on ranking the pages contained within a subgraph of the global Web graph. The challenge for these applications is to compute PageRank-style scores efficiently on the subgraph, i.e., the ranking must reflect the global link structure of the Web graph but it must do so without paying the high overhead associated with a global computation. We propose a framework of an exact solution and an approximate solution for computing ranking on a subgraph. The IdealRank algorithm is an exact solution with the assumption that the scores of external pages are known. We prove that the IdealRank scores for pages in the subgraph converge. Since the PageRank-style scores of external pages may not typically be available, we propose the ApproxRank algorithm to estimate scores for the subgraph. Both IdealRank and ApproxRank represent the set of external pages with an externa...
