Power-law distribution of the world wide web

Barabasi and Albert propose an improved version of the Erdos-Renyi theory of random networks to account for the scaling properties of a number of systems, including the link structure of the World Wide Web (WWW). The theory they present, however, is inconsistent with empirically observed properties of the Web link structure.
