In this paper we try to experimentally check if it is possible to predict Web traffic data using only link analysis data. It is a natural continuation of Sydow, (2005), where correlations between link analysis and traffic data were measured. A perceptron is applied as an intelligent prediction module. The general conclusion is negative, i.e. dependencies mentioned above are too weak or too complex to be grasped by a perceptron. We also report some successful results concerning dependencies inside link analysis and inside traffic data. All the experiments are performed on intersection of 20-million sample from Polish Web graph and traffic data concerning 3 million Polish URLs.
