This paper presents and empirical study in which we examine the process of preserential attachment as it applies to business enterprises on the World Wide Web. Using randomly selected business Web pages as nodes and their inbound links as edges, we explre the role of parked domain names in link creation and preferential attachment at very granular levels. Our research leads us to the conclusion that the abundance of parked domain name sites does not present a plausible explanation for preferential attachment.
