---- Is PageRank Lost on Links to Binary Files (e.g. ZIP, EXE, TAR)?

Even the originally published PR formula includes a damping factor (0.85 was suggested in the paper). Otherwise, as the calculation is iterated, the PR values would take off to infinity rather than converge.
Indeed - by saying "all", I did not intend to mean all PageRank page gets but all that is being flowed down the line - 0.85 in case of classic PageRank, which is much more than 0 which was asserted above.
