Importance of Linkpop to Ink

Are off page factors relevant?

Am doing some research on the Ink algo. (I've also done a site search here btw)

How much importance does Ink attach to inbound links, inbound anchor text etc for its (PFI) pages?

It seems to be predominantly on-page factors with external factors of minor relevance unlike Google for eg. Would this be fair to say?

TIA

For the PFI stuff, it seems most of it is on page factors. I do know they used to use the looksmart directory, odp, etc. so listings in those will only help.

However, given that looksmart isn't really a directory anymore, I'd say the ODP / perhaps Yahoo links are the only two that matter most for Ink.

Get those, combined with nailing down the on page variables, and you should be all set. One of the nice things about PFI and two day refresh, you can tweak, tweak away to your heart's content.

Cheers.

What Jeremy said AND a Zeal directory listing (for non-commercial sites, feeds LS) helps.

Caution: Inktomi announced Web Search 9 [webmasterworld.com] recently so these comments may soon be "how it used to be."

I would think the XML data feeds make it difficult for link pop to have any effect (cause I don't think they include links in those data feeds.

If, as Ink says, there is no advantage in rankings given to "Trusted Feeds", then that may to indicate tht link pop has very little value.
