Browsing and searching behavior in the Renardus Web service: a study based on log analysis

Abstract

Renardus is a distributed Web-based service, which provides integrated searching and browsing access to quality-controlled Web resources. With the overall purpose of improving Renardus, the research aims to study: the detailed usage patterns (quantitative/qualitative, paths through the system); the balance between browsing and searching or mixed activities; typical sequences of usage steps and transition probabilities in a session; typical entry points, referring sites, points of failure and exit points; and, the usage degree of the browsing support features.
