Mathematical representation of the patterns in URL: A tool for the webometrics studies

Roman Hujer


Webometrics is gaining big momentum nowadays. Although it is not called by this name in commercial sector, there is a tremendous demand for it. On the low level the majority of webometric studies use a classification. When classification is not defined outside of the webometric study, as for example product portfolio (Feige, 2013), its establishing is tedious human coder work. The process is laborious and result depends on a particular researcher. The patterns in URL can be used in for an automated establishing of classification via tagging, using principle of grounded theory (Thelwall 2013). As such, the patterns in the URL will reduce amount of work in classifying and eliminate the human opinion factor from the process.
