Web Mining - Research and Practice


Web mining techniques seek to extract knowledge from Web data. This article provides an overview of past and current work in the three main areas of Web mining research— content, structure, and usage—as well as emerging work in Semantic Web mining. As a large and dynamic information source that is structurally complex and ever-growing, the World Wide Web is fertile ground for datamining principles, or Web mining. The Web mining field encompasses a wide array of issues, primarily aimed at deriving actionable knowledge from the Web, and includes researchers from information retrieval, database technologies, and artificial intelligence. Since Oren Etzioni, among others, formally introduced the term, authors have used “Web mining” to mean slightly different things.
