Smart Miner

Murat Ali Bayir, Ismail Hakki Toroslu, Ahmet Cosar, Guven Fidan
2009 Proceedings of the 18th international conference on World wide web - WWW '09  
In this paper, we propose a novel framework called Smart-Miner for web usage mining problem which uses link information for producing accurate user sessions and frequent navigation patterns.  ...  Unlike the simple session concepts in the time and navigation based approaches, where sessions are sequences of web pages requested from the server or viewed in the browser, Smart Miner sessions are set  ...  Then, we can evaluate how successful that heuristic was in reconstructing the known sessions.  ...

V.Chitraa, Dr. Antony Selvdoss Davamani
2010 arXiv   pre-print
Because of the tremendous usage of web, the web log files are growing at a faster rate and the size is becoming huge. Web data mining is the application of data mining techniques in web data.  ...  World Wide Web is a huge repository of web pages and links. It provides abundance of information for the Internet users.  ...  The quality of a website can be evaluated by analyzing user accesses of the website. To know the quality of a web site user accesses are to be evaluated by web usage mining.  ...
