An important part of the Web research nowadays concentrates on developing increasingly sophisticated models of the Web graph. Properties of these graphs are measured and compared with the properties of the real Web. This paper briefly summarizes the most important measures and models of the Web and suggests a new model wich is an improved version of a few existing models.
