Hi all,

the Web Data Commons team is happy to announce the publication of the 
second large hyperlink graph.

The graph has been extracted from the April 2014 Common Crawl web corpus 
and covers 1.7 billion web pages and 64 billion hyperlinks between these 

The graph can be downloaded in various formats from 

We provide initial statistics about the topology of the graph at 

We hope that the graph will be useful for researchers who develop

Search algorithms that rank results based on the hyperlinks between pages.
* SPAM detection methods which identity networks of web pages that are 
published in order to trick search engines.
* Graph analysis algorithms and can use the hyperlink graph for testing 
the scalability and performance of their tools.
* Web Science researchers who want to analyze the linking patterns 
within specific topical domains in order to identify the social 
mechanisms that govern these domains.

We want to thanks the Common Crawl project for providing their great web 
crawl and thus enabling the creation of the WDC Hyperlink Graph.

The creation of the WDC Hyperlink Graph was supported by the EU research 
project PlanetData and by Amazon Web Services.  We thank your sponsors a 

Best Regards,

Chris, Oliver, Sebastiano & Robert
