I have been thinking about relevance lately -- trying to think of ways a
search engine might calculate relevance.  There must be grades of
relevance.  Maybe they are determining the focus of a page/site based on
keywords and assigning keywords to categories, in something like what DMOZ
or any directory does.  The closer your subjects are aligned on the
directory tree the more relevant your page/site/hub is?

So a category like "role playing games" wouldn't be that far
from "miniatures", and would be just a little farther from "gambling" or
"sports" (but still related under the broader category "games").  "Role
playing games" would not have any relevance to subjects in another broad
category like "biology" or "environment".

Nothing new... just looking through directories and thinking about
