comment Idea of an algorithm to detect a website's navigation structure?
So basically, you would start at the root page, and simply parse links as you go and treat every link inside a page simply as a child page?

@RobertHarvey In my mind, I cannot come up with a tree but rather with an unstructured web of cross-linking pages. How would I detect which are root pages and which are child pages, etc.?

@RobertHarvey Hopefully not :-) I've successfully developed a web spider. What I'm looking for might be called a "post mortem web spider". I want to detect the structure of what a web spider produces.
