zett, The patent has a fairly long list of clues as to how a site can reach the status of a Favorite Place. Basically, such a site needs lots of authoritative recommendations to get noticed by the algorithm. A new place needs to become "popular" in one of the approved ways, e.g. ratings and reviews at trusted sites, forum discussions in trusted newsgroups, etc.
