    We describe a model for log data of user search sessions obtained from a trail-based search and navigation documentation system. The model elicits interesting patterns that can be used to better understand Web user search and navigation behaviour. Our study shows that such log data reveals interesting patterns beyond the typical statistical query terms analysis.
