In T245330, we tested out the link recommendation algorithm and decided that it has enough potential to continue with. This task is about issues that were discovered in testing it on T245330, and potential improvements to make. For each of the following issues, we may decide not to try to improve it, if this would cause us problems with precision, recall, or scalability:
- Not linking in the middle of a multi-word phrase, e.g. only linking “London” in “London Underground” (examples)
- Linking to the correct disambiguation of a word, e.g. from an article about biology, linking to “Cell (biology)” instead of to “Cell (geometry)”.
- Not suggesting a link if that word or phrase has already been linked in the article.
- Not linking inside the titles of external links (example article)
- Not linking inside the names of organizations, e.g. “Access & Publishing Group”. (example article)
- Not linking common names of people (example article)
- Not linking to common phrases, e.g. “Yet another” (example article)
- Not linking to article about dates, like the article for 1979.
