Abstract The World Wide Web consists billions of web pages and huge amount of information available within the web pages. To retrieve required information from World Wide Web, search engines perform number of tasks based on their respective architecture and use various ranking algorithms for getting the desired result. To support the users to navigate in the result list, various ranking methods are applied on the search results. Some basic algorithms are Page Rank Algorithm, Weighted Page Rank Algorithm, and HITS. All these algorithms are used to discover more relevant pages on the top of the result-list This new ranking mechanism is known as Weighted Page Rank Algorithm based on Visits of Links (VOL).The original Weighted Page Rank algorithm (WPR) takes into account the importance of both the in links and out links of the web pages and distributes rank scores based on the popularity of the pages. The original Weighted Page Rank Algorithm is based on the popularity (importance) of in links and out links of a hyperlinked web graph. It calculates relevancy of a web page higher than the standard Page Rank algorithm, which is used by famous search engine Google. This technique increases the relevancy score than the existing one. So, this concept is very useful to display most valuable pages on the top of the result list on the basis of user’s browsing behavior, which reduce the search space to a large scale.
