 Concerning Tolkien's Middle-Earth

Links2Go Key Resource
J.R.R. Tolkien Topic

Each quarter, Links2Go samples millions of web pages to determine which pages are most heavily cited by web pages authors. The most popular pages are downloaded and automatically categorized by topic. At most 50 of the pages related to a topic are selected as "Key Resources." Out of 50 pages selected as Key Resources for the J.R.R. Tolkien topic, this page ranked 43rd on May 9, 1999.

The Links2Go Key Resource award differs from other awards in two important ways. First, it is objective. Most awards rely on hand selection by one or more "experts," many of whom have only looked at tens or hundreds of thousands of pages in bestowing their awards. Selection for these awards means no more than that one person, somewhere, noticed your page and liked it enough to select it. The Key Resource award, on the other hand, is based on an analysis of millions of web pages. Any group or organization who conducts a similar analysis will arrive at similar conclusions. When Links2Go says a page is a Key Resource, it means that the page is one of the most relevant pages related to a particular topic on the web today, using an objective statistical measure applied to an extremely large data set.

Second, the Key Resource award is exclusive. Links2Go gets literally hundreds of people requesting that their page be added to one or more topics per week. All of these requests are denied. The only way to get listed as a Key Resource is for a page to achieve enough popularity for Links2Go's analysis to select that pages automatically. Fewer than one page in one thousand will ever be selected as a Key Resource.
