I was just thinking and unaccustomed as I am to this experience I thought I'd share(I will also attempt to share with more clarity than is my wont); we know that google determines result-position by linkage(with certain types of linkers being given preference - bloggers for example) and that they also attempt to weed-out people attempting to influence the results by various unfair or data-skewing methods. Basically it seems to me that way Google has approached the web is as a giant problem in Bayesian Analysis, and that this method has been relatively successful(at least more successful than other methods have been). Data mining is one area that derives great benefits from Bayesian methods, so I would suppose that the Semantic Web from the Google perspective should be a data mining exercise. Given this, What do people think might be some other inferential models(opposed to or complementing the 'importance by linking model') that could be used to gauge a page's importance against any particular query. (Was the above reasonable?)
