Tracking the random surfer: empirically measured teleportation parameters in PageRank

  title={Tracking the random surfer: empirically measured teleportation parameters in PageRank},
  author={David F. Gleich and Paul G. Constantine and Abraham D. Flaxman and Asela Gunawardana},
PageRank computes the importance of each node in a directed graph under a random surfer model governed by a teleportation parameter. Commonly denoted alpha, this parameter models the probability of following an edge inside the graph or, when the graph comes from a network of web pages and links, clicking a link on a web page. We empirically measure the teleportation parameter based on browser toolbar logs and a click trail analysis. For a particular user or machine, such analysis produces a… CONTINUE READING
