This page provides detailed download instruction to obtain the hyperlink graph extracted from the Common Crawl 2014 web corpus. The graph covers 1.7 billion web pages and 64 billion hyperlinks between these pages.
We also provide basic statistics about the hyperlink. Please visit the overview page for more information about the provided file formats.
1. Index/Arc Format
The following table contains the links for downloading the index of the graph for each aggregation level.
|Data Set||Index File|
|Page Graph||see below (20 GB)|
|Host Graph||download (309 MB)|
|PLD Graph||download (161 MB)|
Downloading the page graph: The page graph (index files) are, due to their size split into in small files of around 400 MB. These files can be downloaded using
wget -i http://webdatacommons.org/hyperlinkgraph/2014-04/data/index.list.txtfor the index files and respectively
wget -i http://webdatacommons.org/hyperlinkgraph/2014-04/data/arc.list.txtfor the arc files.
2. WebGraph Files
This time we mainly provide the graph within the web graph format expected by the WebGraph Framework developed by Sebastiano Vigna. The graph is represented using three files:
.graph, .offsets, .properties. All three are necessary to load the network into the library.
|Page Graph||webgraph.graph (20 GB)||webgraph.offsets (2.1 GB)||webgraph.properties (< 2 KB)|
|Host Graph||hostgraph.graph (326 MB)||hostgraph.offsets (25 MB)||hostgraph.properties (< 2 KB)|
|PLD Graph||pldgraph.graph (134 MB)||pldgraph.offsets (13 MB)||pldgraph.properties (< 2 KB)|
Using the WebGraph Framework, which can be downloaded from Maven Central, these files can be loaded using the following line of code:
BVGraph graph = BVGraph.loadMapped(baseName, new ProgressLogger()).
3. Additional Material
3.1. Symmetric and Transposed Graphs
In addition to the original representation of the page graph we have calculated a symmetric version of the graph, as well as a transposed version. Within the symmetric version of the page graph whenever there is an arc (directed link) within the original we replaced it with an edge (undirected link). Within the symmetric version of the page graph whenever there is an arc from page 1 to page 2, this arc is replaced by an arc from page 2 to page 1. The graphs are provided in the web graph format:
|Symmetric Page Graph||webgraph.graph (26 GB)||webgraph.offsets (2.2 GB)||webgraph.properties (< 2 KB)|
|Transposed Page Graph||webgraph.graph (8.5 GB)||webgraph.offsets (1.2 GB)||webgraph.properties (< 2 KB)|
