Web usage mining has become popular in various business areas related with Web site development. In Web usage mining, the commonly visited navigational paths are extracted in terms of Web page addresses from the Web server visit logs, and the patterns are used in various applications. The semantic information of the Web page contents is generally not included in Web usage mining. In this thesis, a framework for integrating semantic information with Web usage mining is implemented. The frequent navigational patterns are extracted in the forms of ontology instances instead of Web page addresses and the result is used for making page recommendations to the visitor. Moreover, an evaluation mechanism is implemented to find the success of the recommendation. Test results proved that stronger and more accurate recommendations are obtained by including semantic information in the Web usage mining instead of using on visited Web page addresses.

Using Semantic Information for Web Usage Mining Based Recommendation
Salın, Süleyman; Karagöz, Pınar (2009-09-28)
Web usage mining has become popular in various business areas related with Web site development. In Web usage mining, commonly visited navigational paths are extracted in terms of Web page addresses from the Web server visit logs, and the patterns are used in various applications including recommendation. The semantic information of the Web page contents is generally not included in Web usage mining. In this work, a framework for integrating semantic information with Web usage mining is presented. The frequ...
Multilingual dynamic linking of web resources
Dönmez, Uğur; Coşar, Ahmet; Yeşilada, Yeliz; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
The World Wide Web is successful for locating, browsing and publishing information by its scalable architecture. However, the Web suffers from some limitations. For example, links on the Web are embedded in documents. Links are only unidirectional, ownership is required to place an anchor in documents, and authoring links is an expensive process. The embedded link structure of the Web can be improved by Semantic Web. By using Semantic Web components, existing Web resources can be enriched with additional ex...
Mining frequent semantic event patterns
Söztutar, Enis; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
Especially with the wide use of dynamic page generation, and richer user interaction in Web, traditional web usage mining methods, which are based on the pageview concept are of limited usability. For overcoming the difficulty of capturing usage behaviour, we define the concept of semantic events. Conceptually, events are higher level actions of a user in a web site, that are technically independent of pageviews. Events are modelled as objects in the domain of the web site, with associated properties. A sam...
Abductive planning approach for automated web service composition using only user specified inputs and outputs
Kuban, Esat Kaan; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
In recent years, web services have become an emerging technology for communication and integration between applications in many areas such as business to business (B2B) or business to commerce (B2C). In this growing technology, it is hard to compose web services manually because of the increasing number and compexity of web services. Therefore, automation of this composition process has gained a considerable amount of popularity. Automated web service composition can be achieved either by generating the com...
Improving pattern quality in web usage mining by using semantic information
Karagöz, Pınar (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-03-01)
Frequent Web navigation patterns generated by using Web usage mining techniques provide valuable information for several applications such as Web site restructuring and recommendation. In conventional Web usage mining, semantic information of the Web page content does not take part in the pattern generation process. In this work, we investigate the effect of semantic information on the patterns generated for Web usage mining in the form of frequent sequences. To this aim, we developed a technique and a fram...
