In the pictures below, Site A will pass more Page Rank to your website because more websites
are linking (voting) for them.
Wheras site B only has 2 votes (links).
Site A has 4 votes (links), therefor Site A is more important than site B which only has 2 votes
For example, let's say that a town was voting on whether or not they wanted to pass a certain
law. Their were 3 parties voting.
The Leader (Ruler)
Now, whose vote would count for more? I would guess that the Leader's vote would count for
much more than both the council and the citizens. The leader is obviously more important that
both of the others. The council and the citizens' votes would still count for something, but just
not as much as the Leader's vote.
Page Rank works in a similar way. A link or "vote" from those pages that are more important
will increase your page rank and "count for more" than those pages that aren't as important.
Remember, in order to tell how important a webpage is, simply count the number of pages
linking (voting) to that page, AND also the importance of those pages voting for that page.
