A Survey of Eigenvector Methods of Web Information Retrieval
Web information retrieval is significantly more challenging than
traditional well-controlled, small document collection information
retrieval. One main difference
between traditional information retrieval and Web information
retrieval is the Web's hyperlink structure. This
structure has been exploited by several of today's leading Web search engines,
particularly Google. In this survey paper, we focus on Web
information retrieval methods that use
eigenvector computations, presenting the three popular methods of HITS,
PageRank, and SALSA.
