Google ranks Canadian Centres for Teaching Peace website #1 in Canada for "Activism & Peace Work"

Google is the internet's top search engine.  It uses software called "Pagerank" to find "the most relevant and highly regarded sites on any topic."  Using this method, Google now ranks Canadian Centres for Teaching Peace website as the number one site in Canada under the category of "Activism & Peace Work".  Google explains that its "Pagerank" system determines whether "people on the web consider a page to be a high-quality site worth checking out."  In explaining how their ranking system works, Google says:  "Pagerank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page's value ... Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B.  But, Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the page that casts the vote.  Votes cast by pages that are themselves 'important' weigh more heavily and help to make other pages 'important'."
