Read Some of Google's First Patents Filed by Larry Page and Sergey Brin

Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded Google in the year 1998. Before the name "Google" was given, the search engine was known as "BackRub" because it took into account the quality of backlinks and citations before ranking any webpage. This technology was named as "PageRank" and was named after one of its founders Larry Page. That's history but who else wants to see some of the first patents filed by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin in the year 1997 and 1999?

Our own search patent guru, Bill Slawski has published some of the earliest known patents of Google. These patent discusses about the Page Rank technology and how Google utilized this technology to improve search results quality and make it better than what was provided by the earlier search engine of that time, Alta Vista. Evaluation of the quality of backlinks and citations before ranking webpages not only helped in improving search result quality but also helped in decreasing the computation cost. Not only this, these patents also discusses about the identification of patterns and relations using DIPRE (Dual Iterative Pattern Relation Expansion) method. Here are the published links:
