The possible uses for this graph when it comes to semantic search are mouth-watering. It will keep the researchers busy for a while and should put a little fear into the hearts of link and data spammers.

#semanticsearch #linkspam  
The Web Data Commons have generated a Hyperlink Graph which has been extracted from the Common Crawl 2012 web corpus, it covers 3.5 billion web pages and 128 billion hyperlinks between these pages.  To the best of their knowledge, the graph is the largest hyperlink graph that is available to the public.

I haven't had time to consume it but it is hoped that the graph will be useful for researchers who are interested in or 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.

The graph covers hyperlinks between web pages and can be downloaded from:

Initial statistics about the topology of the graph can be found at:

Thanks to Prof. Christian Bizer for sharing the news.  I'm looking forward to finding out new things.  I'm sure there will be lots of interesting follow-ups based on findings.

Just too good not to share!
I'm sure there is a moral somewhere that can be drawn with this and business - but for now - just have a great day, as you remember this, smile at the next person you see ... enjoy their reaction ;)
A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As
she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his
stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest.

After a moment or two, the vet
shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles,
has passed away."

The distressed woman wailed,
"Are you sure?"
"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied
the vet..

"How can you be so sure?" she
protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or

The vet rolled his eyes, turned
around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later
with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on
in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his
front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from
top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and
shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the
head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he
returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also
delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat
back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and
strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the
woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most
definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."

The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and
produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..

The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she
cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"

The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it,
the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the
Cat Scan, it's now $150."
