Subject Re: What is Inlinks
Date Thu, 30 Apr 2009 13:51:33 GMT
Inlinks are the inbound links to a given page.  The anchor text is the 
text used to create the inbound link.  For example say we have two pages 
A and B:

A -> <a href="http://inbound/link">Anchor Text</a> -> B

Here we have a link from A to B using "Anchor Text" as the inbound link 
(anchor) text and "http://inbound/link" as the inbound link.  Inlinks is 
an aggregation of all inbound links to a given page.  So if pages D, E, 
F, and G all point to B, Inlinks would have all the links from A, C, D, 
and E to B.

Inlinks are parsed out of the HTMl during the fetching/parsing process. 
  They are then pulled into other jobs such as the WebGraph tools and 
the indexing process.
