(2005) Technical Report. Helsinki Institute for Information Technology, Helsinki, Finland.


Results about and variations of the static ranking of web pages based on the so called random surfer model are reviewed and presented in a unified framework. A new model, the static absorbing model is also reviewed and compared with the random surfer model. Results include different fixed point algorithms, convergence rates, stability, and a method for pruning dangling pages.
