I have a data set from a access web log file which I'm interested in finding similar clusters. (I'm an absolute beginner of data mining). So far I have referred many research papers on the same problem domain.
I want to use k-means clustering to cluster web pages. Although these papers discuss about the algorithm, they do not specify the way of providing input data set. k-means calculate similarity between data points using Euclidean distance. So how to normalize my dataset to be mined using k-means since urls can not directly used for k-means. Any help/good reference on this?
I'm not an expert but the way I would approach the problem is to create a table with p1...pn as columns and individual users as rows.
The values filling the table would be the count of how many times a page has been visited by the user.
