GoogleBrowser - Internet map in the form of a graph

    Now on the Internet you can see the "map of the Web", it is created live on the basis of information about "similar sites", which is issued by Google . It is enough to specify any URL - and an endless web of nodes, links and weaves appears on the screen.

    The user-specified URL is the starting point for building a map. The algorithm works simply: a request is sent to the Google search engine for information about the most similar sites. Then - about the sites most similar to these sites, and so on. If there are interconnections between the sites in the second, third or subsequent stages, then they are also interconnected. Thus, an extensive map of the Internet is created. At least a map of the part of the Network where the specified site is located.

    An Internet map can be represented in the form of a graph, where web pages are displayed as dots, and hyperlinks as lines. This model, by the way, is used by Google to rank web pages. It is with the help of such a map that you can find "similar" sites - they will be located on the graph not far from each other. The system GoogleBrowser using reverse principle - on the basis of information on sites near Earl built.

    On this map, each “node” is provided with an annotation. If you hold the mouse cursor over it, an information window will appear. By double-clicking on the site, a request is sent to Google for information on the ten URLs that are most similar to this site.

    Using this tool, you can find interesting information, for example, “hidden” links between sites. This is reminiscent of the “six handshakes” theorem that supposedly connect any two people on our planet. Similarly, on the Internet you can find a chain that links any two websites. By the way, there is a special function for such an investigation. Unfortunately, GoogleBrowser does not work correctly with the Cyrillic alphabet, which somewhat complicates the perception of information.

    Maybe someone will be interested that GoogleBrowser is not the only tool created using TouchGraph graphing technology . On the Internet you can find other interesting developments, for example, Amazon Browser for building a map of the relationship of literary works orPubMed Browser for medical literature.
