    I want to know which of the links that are suggested to users, as a result of a search engine in my web site, are users' favorites. do you have any suggestion how I can do it?

    Trying to judge what people are looking for is difficult to do, and even the large search engines have troubles figuring this stuff out.

    I don't know if Google publishes the details of their pagerank algorithm, but I'd say that's a good place to start looking if you're able to.

    Otherwise, I suppose you could simply count which results users click on most, or introduce a "rating" system (something like Facebook's +1, or a simple 5 star scale) to gather user thoughts, as well as allow for user comments/feedback.

    suppose I want to use a "rating" system using a script. I have a link in a popup window. when users click on the link it opens a webpage (suppose its name is X) which consists of some other links and each time the content of this webpage may differ. I need to run the script in this webpage(X), but I don't know how to access it. is there any way to do it?

    To be honest, I don't know. It seems like you're delving more into the realm of Javascript/AJAX/JSP/PHP, which I'm not sure you'll be able to find too much help for here. Perhaps you could try asking on a forum dedicated to webpage design?
