Link analysis is one of the most effective methods of web structure mining. Traditional link analysis methods only consider the flat structure of the web with hyperlinks. It may affect the precision of the analysis result inevitably. It is observed that the web could be treated as an entity with a three-layer structure: host layer, page layer and block layer. Considering this three-layer structure is expected to improve the precision significantly when performing link analysis. A novel algorithm, three-layer based ranking is proposed to complete this task. In this algorithm, the important hosts and blocks are found within adaptations of the traditional link analysis methods. Based on these hosts and blocks, the web pages both belonged to important hosts and containing important blocks could be retrieved. These web pages are just the authoritative web pages that link analysis is looking for. We experimentally evaluate the precision of our three-layer based ranking algorithm. It is concluded from extensive experiments that this method outperforms other traditional algorithms significantly.
