Analyzing a Large Website Graph: Importing Node and Edge Data

I’d like to be able to analyze and visualize our website but with more than 300 thousand pages and more than 20 million links, its too much information to easily digest or display. So I thought I’d explore ways to summarize it. This can let me quickly see any large changes in the website as we continually enhance it.

Note that between the 13 and 20 min marks, in the section “Try and Fail Many Times to Read Data”, (I, surprise, surprise) try and fail many times to read the data before noticing I made a foolish mistake. You can skip this.

Features covered in this code-along style video include:

  • Data Import tool
  • readtable with delimiters and format strings
