link analysis defined:

link popularity:
the numerical count of incoming links

link reputation: what incoming links say about your site

due to increased competition on the web, the search engines struggle to consistently return only quality web sites to users. as a result, search engines, namely google, have begun to rely more and more on link analysis as a means of determining the importance of each site.

the rationale:
the more times a site is linked to by other sites, the more important it must be. in the process of analyzing a site’s links, a search engines will consider both link popularity and link reputation. while it’s important to capture as many incoming links as possible, what has become most important is who links to you and how they link to you.
