A Model for Users' Action Prediction Based on Locality Profiles
In this chapter we propose a model for predicting users' next page requests. The model is based on the recognition and mining of navigational paths and patterns users typically follow. A special access log system is employed and techniques of web mining are used. Experimental results with developed prediction model are presented.
