To reveal the structure of the relationships that establish themselves on the World Wide Web, one needs to apply tools that faithfully represent the virtual environment. Some of the most interesting relationships are those that are brought to light by web-coupling (the Web analogue of bibliographic coupling). We here propose an analysis of this type based on the common links that are generated within a closed web environment, using multivariate statistics (principal component analysis, and multidimensional scaling) and a connection-based technique (Kohonen's self-organizing maps). The results show that it is possible to use the common links of web spaces in order to reveal the structures and the underlying relationships in a thematic closed environment.
