Corresponding to the evolution of the Web from the poorly structured towards more structured, semantic rich network, search methods that apply to it are also evolving from using little structural and semantic information to using more such information that is available. This paper proposes a ranking and filtering mechanism that makes use of link types that is representable with new Web standards. We suggest that page ranking can be propagational through links and the propagational rates depend

Technical issues in implementing the mechanism in a search system are also discussed.
