Measuring Hyperlink Distances: Wikipedia Case Study Hyperlink analysis
Hyperlink distance
Document similarity
Wikipedia
WebSci Conference English 2011 Hyperlinks are a fundamental aspect of the Web, as they play a major role in accomplishing important functions such as document clustering and document ranking. Despite various facets of hyperlink analysis, in this work we consider a novel aspect of hyperlinks, namely their distance. How far in terms of contextual similarity will a hyperlink take you? We consider classical distance functions that capture the similarity between documents as well as propose a new distance function, an IDF-based generalization of Jaccard distance. We characterize the distance distribution of hyperlinks considering Wikipedia as a case study. Our results indicate that hyperlink distances are strongly skewed, with the majority of hyperlinks exhibiting very long distances. 0 0
