Teoma and "Local Popularity"

 6:03 pm on Jan 22, 2005 (gmt 0)

According to Matt Cutts of Teoma when discussing the new rel="nofollow" tag, Teoma differentiates from google in that google "use global popularity (PageRank) while we use the local popularity approach pioneered by Teoma." Does anyone know more about this "local popularity"? Is it relating to only counting links from local sites from where it guesses the linked-to site is from (ie " pizzas in chicago, poodles in chicago etc") or some other meaning of "local popularity"?

The "local" popularity he was referring to is not a geographic term. It has something to do with the sites that come up in their algo for a particular search.
