User behavior identification is an important task in web usage mining. Web usage mining is also called as web log mining. The web logs are mainly used to identify the user behavior. There are so many pattern mining methods which enable this user behavior identification. The preprocessing techniques will maximize the accurate and quality of pattern mining methodologies. In existing algorithms, the preprocessing concepts are applied to calculate the unique user's count, to minimize the log file size and to identify the sessions. The newly proposed algorithm is Visitors' Online Behavior (VOB) which identifies user behavior, creates user cluster and page cluster, and tells the most popular web page and least popular web page.
