Baeza-Yates R., Saint-Jean F., Castillo C. (2002) Web Structure, Dynamics and Page Quality. In: Laender A.H.F., Oliveira A.L. (eds) String Processing and Information Retrieval. SPIRE 2002. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol 2476. Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg
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.
