Techniques for web data mining in R and elsewhere?



I would like to know various techniques available in R and elsewhere that help in mining web data.



Please add more specific aspects, you are interested in. Web analytics is a very broad field and saying R and elsewhere would also not help.


P.S. You can edit your original post itself


I am looking at ways that can help in mining different types of data from the internet.
I don’t have a specific aim in mind right now. Just wanted to know the available resources.
