As the exponential explosion of various contents generated on the web, recommendation techniques have become increasingly indispensable. Innumerable different kinds of recommendations are made on the web every day, including movies, music, images, books recommendations, query suggestions, tags recommendations, etc. No matter what types of data sources are used for the recommendations, essentially these data sources can be modeled in the form of various types of graphs. In this paper, aiming at providing a general framework on mining web graphs for recommendations, the authors first propose a novel diffusion method which propagates similarities between different nodes and generates recommendations; then they illustrate how to generalize different recommendation problems into their graph diffusion framework.
