Hi All,

I've been looking for information on web browsing patterns in terms of
page exposure.  Ideally, I'd be interested in roughly how many pages
people visit in a given time period and the shape of that distribution
(i.e. most people look at a few pages, but a long tail look at many
pages).  If anyone could point me to some any broadly applicable
information about how people "acquire" new pages (search engines, links,
email), I would be a happy modeler of user behavior.  I've found plenty of
user studies on browsing behavior *inside* a website, but I'm looking for
domain-level use for a project on trust mechanism simulation.
