Does Yahoo consider PR in Ranking sites?

New Member


I have a question - since PR is a Google generated concept, does Yahoo consider it in its algorithm for ranking websites or does it have its own similar measurement of trust/importance etc?

PR is not a Google generated concept it is just a trademark of Google, and the PageRank process has been patented (U.S. Patent 6,285,999). However, the patent is assigned to Stanford University and not to Google. Google has exclusive license rights on the patent from Stanford University
