Many online data sources are updated autonomously and independently. In this article, we make the case for estimating the change frequency of data to improve Web crawlers, Web caches and to help data mining. We first identify various scenarios, where different applications have different requirements on the accuracy of the estimated frequency. Then we develop several "frequency estimators" for the identified scenarios, showing analytically and experimentally how precise they are. In many cases… Expand
Estimating the rate of Web
    Estimating the rate of Web page updates helps in improving Web crawler’s scheduling policy. But, most of the Web sources are autonomous and updated independently. Clients like Web crawlers are notExpand
    Online Algorithms for Estimating Change Rates of Web Pages
    TLDR
    This work provides three novel schemes for online estimation of page change rates, one of which is the first convergence type result for a stochastic approximation algorithm with momentum, and some numerical experiments to compare the performance of the proposed estimators with the existing ones.

    Estimating the Rate of Web Page Updates
    TLDR
    The proposed Weibull estimator outperforms Duane plot(another proposed estimator) and other estimators proposed by Cho et al. and Norman Matloff in 91.5% of the whole windows for synthetic(real Web) datasets. Expand
    A Parameter-Adjustable Estimating Method for Change Frequency of Web Pages
    TLDR
    This paper model the change of page as a Poisson process and proposes a parameter-adjustable algorithm that can adjust the parameters in order to estimate the change frequency more effective. Expand
    DRAFT 5 / 5 / 2008 : Estimation of Web Page Change Rates
    Search engines strive to maintain a “current” repository of all pages on the web to index for user queries. However, crawling all pages all the time is costly and inefficient: many small websitesExpand
    Change Rate Estimation and Optimal Freshness in Web Page Crawling
    TLDR
    This work provides two novel schemes for online estimation of page change rates, both of which prove convergence and derive their convergence rates. Expand
    A Hybrid Approach for Refreshing Web Page Repositories
    TLDR
    This paper introduces a new sampling method that excels over other change detection methods in experiment and proposes a new hybrid method that is a combination of the new sampling approach and CF and shows how the hybrid method improves the efficiency of change detection. Expand
    A mathematical model for crawler revisit frequency

    TLDR
    An efficient approach for computing revisit frequency is being proposed, where web pages which frequently undergo up-dation are detected and accordingly revisit frequency for the pages is dynamically computed. Expand
    Online Change Estimation Models for Dynamic Web Resources - A Case-Study of RSS Feed Refresh Strategies
    TLDR
    The importance of developing efficient online estimation techniques for improving the refresh strategies of RSS feed aggregators like Google Reader, Datasift or Roses is illustrated and several online estimation methods in cohesion with different refresh strategies are defined. Expand
    Web Evolution and Incremental Crawling
    TLDR
    In this paper, the researches on Web evolution and incremental crawling in recent years are summarized, and research trends in this area are predicted, and three main issues are listed. Expand

    Estimating frequency of change
    TLDR
    This article makes the case for estimating the change frequency of data to improve Web crawlers, Web caches and to help solve the challenge of integrating NoSQL data stores to manage massive amounts of data. Expand
    The Evolution of the Web and Implications for an Incremental Crawler
    TLDR
    An architecture for the incremental crawler is proposed, which combines the best design choices, which can improve the ``freshness'' of the collection significantly and bring in new pages in a more timely manner. Expand
    An adaptive model for optimizing performance of an incremental web crawler
    TLDR
    This paper outlines the design of a web crawler implemented for IBM Almaden's WebFountain project and describes an optimization model for controlling the crawl strategy and shows that there are compromise objectives which lead to good strategies that are robust against a number of criteria.

    How dynamic is the Web?
    TLDR
    Using empirical models and a novel analytic metric of `up-to-dateness', the rate at which Web search engines must re-index the Web to remain current is estimated. Expand
    Rate of Change and other Metrics: a Live Study of the World Wide Web
    TLDR
    The potential benefit of a shared proxy-caching server in a large environment is quantified by using traces that were collected at the Internet connection points for two large corporations, representing significant numbers of references. Expand
    Towards a Better Understanding of Web Resources and Server Responses for Improved Caching
    TLDR
    Results from the work indicate that there is potential to reuse more cached resources than is currently being realized due to inaccurate and nonexistent cache directives, and that separating out the dynamic portions of a page into their own resources allows relatively static portions to be cached.

    World Wide Web caching: the application-level view of the Internet
    TLDR
    An overview of the differences and currently deployed, developed, and evaluated solutions to the problem of network congestion in the World Wide Web is given. Expand
    Synchronizing a database to improve freshness
    TLDR
    This paper studies how to refresh a local copy of an autonomous data source to maintain the copy up-to-date, and defines two freshness metrics, change models of the underlying data, and synchronization policies. Expand
    World Wide Web Cache Consistency
    TLDR
    Using trace-driven simulation, it is shown that a weak cache consistency protocol (the one used in the Alex ftp cache) reduces network bandwidth consumption and server load more than either time-to-live fields or an invalidation protocol and can be tuned to return stale data less than 5% of the time.

    On the scale and performance of cooperative Web proxy caching
    TLDR
    It is demonstrated that cooperative caching has performance benefits only within limited population bounds, and the model is extended beyond these populations to project cooperative caching behavior in regions with millions of clients. Expand
