WbRank is a general measure of a website's popularity on a scale of 0 to 10. The WbSrch search engine uses it as one of the ranking factors in its search results.
WbRank is determined using an unweighted count of the number of unique domains in the WbSrch search index that link to the target domain. More links result in a higher WbRank. It is calculated on a roughly logarithmic scale, so it takes more links to move from WbRank 3 to WbRank 4 than it does to move from WbRank 1 to WbRank 2.
