A mixture of both. Computationally, PageRank is expensive even if you
optimise by discounting less popular sites (which then causes skew in
the results), and relevancy there also suffers as the number of pages
I heave heard of some people that have some large number of 'sites'
that are used to game the system by adding links to all sites at
once, but there are ways of getting around that.
There are obvious ways to solve these problems... I've been casually
shopping an idea around for a while now.
