Abstract

A web site should be designed carefully because if the structure of the site is complex, users can be disoriented. A navigable web site is one where users can find desired information as they freely move around at the site. It is important to construct a navigable web site because the navigability of a web site can indicate how accessible the information contents in the site might be. In this paper, we present a way by which a navigable web site might be created. Our method utilizes an ontology that specifies important concepts in the domain of interests and describes how they are related. A web site is modeled as a directed graph and navigability is measured by two quantities: time spent and the number of web pages visited by a user during an information retrieval task. Experimental results indicated that navigability increased as the degree of similarity between the structure of the site and that of ontology increased.
