A system and method ranks resources referring to locations. In one aspect, the method includes generating a location graph, the graph including resource nodes representing resources, location nodes representing geographic locations, and edges between resource nodes and location nodes. Each edge between the resource nodes and the location nodes represents a reference in the resource represented by the resource node to the geographic location represented by the location node. The method includes initializing scores in the location graph for resource nodes or location nodes or both; calculating a score for each resource node based on scores for location nodes sharing an edge with the resource node; and calculating a score for each location node based on scores for resource nodes sharing an edge with the location node.
