"Our snapshots were quite complete mirrors of the 154 web sites. We downloaded pages from each site until we could not reach any more pages from the site or we downloaded the maximum of 200,000 pages. Out of 154 web sites, only four web sites had more than 200,000 pages. The number of pages that we downloaded in each snapshot ranged between 4.6 million pages and 5 million pages. Since we were interested in comparing our estimated page quality with the future PageRank, we first identified the set of pages downloaded in all snapshots. Out of 5 million pages, 2.7 million pages were common in all four snapshots. We then computed the PageRank values from the subgraph of the web obtained from these 2.7 million pages for each snapshot."
