Anybody want to hazard a guess why some listing you include shows up for all kinds of weird and unexpected keywords when you view the stats? I.e. how exactly does Inktomi index your page, seems to me a mystery how I get hits to the site...

In essence, it's pretty much the same system that Google uses (except they call PR "link popularity"). INK also puts some amount of weight into your meta keywords and description tags, though just how much weight has been in question for a while.

This is a very simplistic answer, but in simple terms, it's accurate.

so inktomi measures link popularity by the number of other sites on the Web linking to you?

Basically, yes. There's more to it than that, I'm sure.

All of the search engines seem to have link-pop in there as at least some sort of a factor. The amount of weight it's given will vary, though.
