The Hyperlink-Induced Topic Search (HITS) is a link centrality algorithm designed to rate Web pages, but it is applicable to any directed network. Ranks the nodes according to their authority and hub roles in the network.
The network must be directed. Parallel edges are, in principle, allowed and added up. Self-links are meaningless and should not be present.
|Iterations*||integer||100||Number of itertions of the algorithm, between 1 and 500.|
|Property name for hubs*||text||Hubs||Name of the node property for hub ranking.|
|Property name for authorities*||text||Authorities||Name of the node property for authority ranking.|
|Link Weight||text||None||Link property that indicate the strength of the connection.|
* Required Field
The following picture shows the hub and authority values for a susbset of the internet network, where nodes are webpages and a directed link indicates a hyperlink between two webpages.
