quarter, Links2Go samples millions of web pages to determine which
pages are most heavily cited by web pages authors, such as yourself.
The most popular pages are downloaded and automatically categorized by
topic. At most 50 of the pages related to a topic are selected as "Key
Resources." Out of 50 pages selected as Key Resources for the Natives
topic, your page ranked 36th. For topics like Music, where there are a
large number of interested authors and related pages, it is harder to
achieve selection as a Key Resource than for a special-interest topic,
such as Quantum Physics.
Links2Go Key Resource award differs from other awards in two important
ways. First, it is objective. Most awards rely on hand selection by one
or more "experts," many of whom have only looked at tens or hundreds of
thousands of pages in bestowing their awards. Selection for these
awards means no more than that one person, somewhere, noticed your page
and liked it enough to select it. The Key Resource award, on the other
hand, is based on an analysis of millions of web pages. Any group or
organization who conducts a similar analysis will arrive at similar
conclusions. When Links2Go says your page is a Key Resource, we mean
that your page is one of the most relevant pages related to a
particular topic on the web today, using an objective statistical
measure applied to an extremely large data set.
the Key Resource award is exclusive. We get literally hundreds of
people requesting that their page be added to one or more topics per
week. All of these requests are denied. The only way to get listed as a
Key Resource is to achieve enough popularity for our analysis to select
your pages automatically. We do not accept fees, offers of link
exchanges, free advertising, or bartered livestock as inducements to
add new sites to our lists. Fewer than one page in one thousand will
ever be selected as a Key Resource.
congratulations on your award!
