Web Site Visit Forecasting Using Data Mining Techniques

[Full Text]



Chandana Napagoda



Keywords: Forecasting, Web Site, SMO Regression, Linear Regression, Gaussian Regression and Multilayer Perceptron



Abstract: Data mining is a technique which is used for identifying relationships between various large amounts of data in many areas including scientific research, business planning, traffic analysis, clinical trial data mining etc. This research will be researching applicability of data mining techniques in web site visit prediction domain. Here we will be concentrating on time series regression techniques which will be used to analyse and forecast time dependent data points. Then how those techniques will be applied to forecast web site visits will be explained.
