If I copy a page from the source web site which is already in the google

After a while, the ratio of age will balance and other factors (the
global pagerank of a site, and it's update frequency) will catch up."

Comparison of PhatNav's Rembrandt page with our edit history reveals they
used a dump from between 19 Jun 2003 and 14 Sep 2003.

The Wikipedia article has been edited 30 times since then.
