Abstract

This paper is aimed at the study of quantitative measures of the relation between Web structure, page recency, and quality of Web pages. Quality is studied using different link-based metrics considering their relationship with the structure of the Web and the last modification time of a page. We show that, as expected, Pagerank is biased against new pages. As a subproduct we propose a Pagerank variant that includes page recency into account and we obtain information on how recency is related with Web structure.
