How your page was
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. Once again,
congratulations on your award!
