Approximating Personalized PageRank with Minimal Use of Web Graph Data
In this paper, we consider the problem of calculating fast and accurate approximations to the personalized PageRank score of a webpage. We focus on techniques to improve speed by limiting the amount of web graph data we need to access.
Our algorithms provide both the approximation to the personalized PageRank score as well as guidance in using only the necessary information—and therefore sensibly reduce not only the computational cost of the algorithm but also the memory and memory bandwidth requirements. We report experiments with these algorithms on web graphs of up to 118 million pages and prove a theoretical approximation bound for all. Finally, we propose a local, personalized web-search system for a future client system using our algorithms.
