Abstract

We analyzed human browsing behavior on a large-scale web-based system. Human-web interaction sequences were temporally segmented into blocks encompassing elemental and compound browsing tasks. Network representation of the human browsing behavior resembles a complex network. The complex network traversal topology has a small number of hubs. The hubs contract and disperse navigational pathways. Underlying long tail attributes of complex networks coincide with broad user population and diminish in behaviorally focused user groups.
