Discovering missing links in Wikipedia
Abstract In this paper we address the problem of diIn this paper we address the problem of discovering missing hypertext links in Wikipedia. The method we propose consists of two steps: first, we compute a cluster of highly similar pages around a given page, and then we identify candidate links from those similar pages that might be missing on the given page. The main innovation is in the algorithm that we use for identifying similar pages, {LTRank}, which ranks pages using co-citation and page title information. Both {LTRank} and the link discovery method are manually evaluated and show acceptable results, especially given the simplicity of the methods and conservativeness of the evaluation criteria.nservativeness of the evaluation criteria.

Conclusion The main innovation is in the algorithm thThe main innovation is in the algorithm that we used for identifying similar pages, LTRank, which ranks pages using co-citation and page title information. Both LTRank and the discovery method were evaluated and showed acceptable results, especially given the simplicity of the methods and conservativeness of the evaluation criteria. Though the methods are not perfect, they could be used as an online authoring aid by revealing a ranked list of important candidate links, and the associated Wikipedia links. To some extent, this would provide a page’s author with a global view of the structure of Wikipedia while locally updating or editing a page. while locally updating or editing a page.
