Hi Yanuar,

You might want to take a look at my paper, "Web Graph Analysis in
Perspective: Description and Evaluation in terms of Krippendorff's
Conceptual Framework for Content Analysis," which considers numerous
measurement and validity issues for the Issue Crawler software and web
graph analysis in general.

Hope it is useful:

You'll also find Rogers himself to be quite responsive.

Ken
