At the time, competitors indexed web pages and returned results in the order of the best match for keywords in a search query. Brin and Page's startup BackRub primarily showed those pages to which the most so-called cross-links led.

Many users know that the first search engines at the dawn of the popularity and prevalence of the Internet were, to put it mildly, not ideal.

Having understood the principle that “not all sites are equally useful” (and those that are referred to by a greater number of third-party sites as the primary source) are considered more useful pages and they have their own so-called rating, the graduate students named their project BackRub and began to establish the importance of pages in the World spider web
