Web mining, web usage mining, semantic relation, data pre-processing


The extraction of information from the websites and generating relationships from the web data is an important task. The web log file gathers a large amount of information that must be removed using data pre-processing steps. Identifying the importance of website is also crucial. Considering the semantic relationship, hierarchical and non-hierarchical relationships are detected from this log.
