We propose a novel approach to learn distributed representation for graph data. Our idea is to combine a recently introduced neural document embedding model with a traditional pattern mining technique, by treating a graph as a document and frequent subgraphs as atomic units for the embedding process. Compared to the latest graph embedding methods, our proposed method offers three key advantages: fully unsupervised learning, entire-graph embedding, and edge label leveraging. We demonstrate our method on several datasets in comparison with a comprehensive list of up-to-date stateof-the-art baselines where we show its advantages for both classification and clustering tasks.
