Finding Generalized Path Patterns for Web Log Data Mining

  title={Finding Generalized Path Patterns for Web Log Data Mining},
  author={Alexandros Nanopoulos and Yannis Manolopoulos},
Conducting data mining on logs of web servers involves the determination of frequently occurring access sequences. We examine the problem of finding traversal patterns from web logs by considering the fact that irrelevant accesses to web documents may be interleaved within access patterns due to navigational purposes. We define a general type of pattern that takes into account this fact and also, we present a level-wise algorithm for the determination of these patterns, which is based on the… CONTINUE READING
