How about a hierarchical tree?  Strip the common precursor stuff
([http[s]://][www.]) and proceed from there, splitting on '.', '/', '?' and

I would also put a Yahoo-style split-level back-out link on the page, ie
            article2001.html    (1 ref  4000 views)
            article2002.html    (1 ref  2500 views)
           [article2003.php]   (4 refs  6600 views)
            article2004.html    (1 ref  800 views)
(where [text] indicates a hyperlink)

Combine this with your restrictor text box and N-items-per-page and it
should be reasonably navigable.
