The Internet is one of the fastest growing areas of intelligence gathering. During their navigation Web users leave many records of their activity. This huge amount of data can be a useful source of knowledge. Advanced mining processes are needed for this knowledge to be extracted, understood and used. Web Usage Mining (WUM) systems are specifically designed to carry out this task by analyzing the data representing usage data about a particular Web site. WUM can model user behavior and, therefore, to forecast their future movements. Online prediction is one Web Usage Mining application. However, the accuracy of the prediction and classification in the current architecture of predicting users' future requests systems can not still satisfy users especially in huge Web sites. To provide online prediction efficiently, we advance an architecture for online predicting in Web Usage Mining system and propose a novel approach based on LCS algorithm for classifying user navigation patterns for predicting users' future requests. The Excremental results show that the approach can improve accuracy of classification in the architecture.
