The page link network visualised backlinks pointing to a site as a network graph. The graph would keep adding more backlinks for each new site until it reaches a certain size. The lines on the graph represent the links between sites while the nodes represent the pages that linked to each other.
Possible uses for the data were pattern spotting as clusters of linking domains could be spotted more easily on a graph rather than a table of data. It was also an easy way to show links of high depth.
