Link similarity is widely applied in measuring the similarity between such objects as Web pages, scientific papers, and social networks. However, there are some deficiencies in the existing methods to measure it. For example, they cannot handle some semantic-similar contents. Their computation may not lead to accurate results in some cases. This paper presents a novel method to do so. It introduces the semantic similarity to calculate the similarity between two given objects, and overcomes the drawback caused by the fact that the existing methods ignore the semantic information of objects. It also gives a novel computation function to make the computing result of similarity more accurate.
