Research Trends in Web and Web Usage Mining

Authors(3) :-Rachana Parikh, Rachit Adhvaryu, Komil Vora

Web Technology is evolving very fast and Internet Users are growing much faster than estimated. The website users are using a wide range of websites leaving back a variety of information. This information must be used by the websites administrator to manipulate their websites according to the users of the websites. This actually is Data Mining. Web Mining is one of the applications of Data Mining. Web mining plays an important role in the decision making in the corporate, education and research environment. Modern developments in digital media technologies have evolved a huge amount of data transmitting over the web and with this huge data storage is required for easy and feasible access. Web Usage Mining is a mining of usage of websites and the information used and delivered on the websites. It is a technique to extract information from the web which includes web documents, hyperlinks between the documents and web usage logs. In this paper we describe the detailed survey of web mining, different techniques of web usage mining and its importance.
