Host-IP clustering technique for deep web characterization
—A huge portion of todays Web consists of web pages filled with information from myriads of online databases. This part of the Web, known as the deep Web, is to date relatively unexplored and even major characteristics such as number of searchable databases on the Web is somewhat disputable. In this paper, we are aimed at more accurate estimation of main parameters of the deep Web by sampling one national web domain. We propose the Host-IP clustering sampling technique that addresses drawbacks of existing approaches to characterize the deep Web and report our findings based on the survey of Russian Web conducted in September 2006. Obtained estimates together with a proposed sampling method could be useful for further studies to handle data in the deep Web. Keywords-deep web; web characterization; virtual hosting; host-IP clustering sampling; search interface discovery
