WTMS: A System for Collecting and Analyzing Topic-Specific Web Information
Sougata Mukherjea
San Jose, Ca, USA
With the explosive growth of the World-Wide Web, it is becoming increasingly difficult for users to collect and analyze Web pages that are relevant to a particular topic. To address this problem we are developing WTMS, a system for Web Topic Management. In this paper we explain how the WTMS crawler efficiently collects Web pages for a topic. We also introduce the user interface of the system that integrates several techniques for analyzing the collection. Moreover, we present the various views of the interface that allow navigation through the information space. We highlight several examples to show how the system enables the user to gain useful insights about the collection.
Keywords: World-Wide Web, Topic Management, Focussed Crawling, Information Visualization, Graph Algorithms, Hubs, Authorities
1. Introduction
The World-Wide Web is undoubtedly the best source for getting information on any topic. Therefore, more and more people use the Web for topic management ], the task of gathering, evaluating and organizing information resources on the Web. Users may investigate topics both for professional or personal interests.

Searching the Internet
It's been said that the Internet is like a huge public library with no card catalog. These collections and search tools represent the efforts of many individuals and organizations to improve access to information on the Internet. Each one is organized or searches differently, so the choice is yours to decide which one works the best for your style of inquiry. Some provide references across many applications (like the WWW, Gopher, and FTP) and others concentrate on cataloging the growth of the World Wide Web only. Think of each link below as a jumping off point, as they all provide hundreds (some thousands) of choices of where to go next. How to Search the Net Subject Directories

Guide to Effective Searching of the Internet Section 1: Searching with Internet Provided Resources Your ability to find the information you seek on the Internet is a function of how precise your queries are and how effectively you use search services. Poor queries return poor results; good queries return great results. Contrary to the hype surrounding "intelligent agents" and "artificial intelligence," the fact remains that search results are only as good as the query you pose and how you search. There is no silver bullet.
There are very effective ways to "structure" a query and use special operators to target the results you seek. Absent these techniques, you will spend endless hours looking at useless documents that do not contain the information you want. Or you will give up in frustration after search-click-download-reviewing long lists of documents before you find what you want.
This tutorial is organized to proceed from the basics to more advanced topics. It is divided into two sections: "Searching with Internet Provided Resources" and "Using a Powerful Desktop Resource: LexiBot

Victoria's Secret According to Lycos's top 50 queries, the ten most popular searches are all about entertainment, games, and sex (from the Lycos 50 Daily Report , May 20, 2000). More than 119 million U.S. households have Internet access. And, after email, research (which includes general Web searches) is the next most popular reason people use the Internet, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers' 1999 Consumer Technology Survey . But for many of us, it's harder to find information on the Web than it is to find meaning in a Pauly Shore movie. Whenever we search online, we get either hundreds of irrelevant and out-of-date links or no results at all. Fortunately, with the right search site at your side and a few pointers to help you narrow down your searches, you can find any tidbit of information on the Web. We'll show you where to find the best search sites, explain how the different sites work, and teach you how to make them perform for you.

Searching the Web: 5 Easy Tips
If you are searching to learn more about a topic in a specific topic area, you can often be very successful very quickly by using a directory about that topic from the start. Femina is an example of a directory of sites for, by and about women. You will, for instance, eliminate all xxx sites so often found in search engines as soon as the word woman is used, searching in this topic-specific directory. You can also search in Yahoo! for the topic and the word Indices (cars + indices) to find lists of sites that are directories for a specific topic. If you are searching for a specific phrase, you may want to go right to a search engine and use Boolean logic to search for the phrase. If you are looking for information regarding a specific business or school, you can often guess the URL and head directly to the home site. For instance, most universities are the name of the and many businesses are the name of the while many organizations are the name of the "And last but not least, share, share and share your searches with friends and colleagues."

What is the Point of Topic Clustering?
are edited and organized by humans, and all websites are listed in a hierarchy, grouped according to their topic, and sub topics are listed within topics. Search engines' databases have no such structure, which would help to focus in on a topic. Many words and phrases have multiple meanings, and this is not a problem for directories, but it is for search engines. Homer was a Greek writer and is also a character on The Simpsons . To solve this problem, many search engines are enhanced by also using a directory. For example, a search for Homer on Google will have two categories listed, Homer the Greek and Homer Simpson (I have shortened the directory folder names). However, when you browse these categories, you are just using a directory and have lost the benefits of a search engine. The solution to all this, is topic clustering. What is Clustering?

How do Meta Search Engines Work?

What Makes a Good Meta Search Engine?

The Meta Searching Trend

What are Meta Search Engines?
True meta search tools do not have their own database. They send your query to several search engines or directories at once, and consolidate all the results onto the same page. The point is to save time by using several search engines at the same time, helping you find obscure items. The term "meta search engine" is often misused. Some tools which do not consolidate results, but just stitch together results pages from various search tools are not meta search engines. Even websites similar to Fagan Finder have been called meta search engines, however they are not. How do Meta Search Engines Work?
Meta search engines will perform your search on each of the sources they include. They will go to the results pages, and parse (extract) the results from them. They record all this, and then manipulate this data however they want, such as removing duplicates. After they have processed the results, they create an HTML page with them listed, which is what you see. What Makes a Good Meta Search Engine?

Getting Started on the Internet
Think carefully about what you are looking for before you start.
  • Is your topic specific or broad?
  • Are you looking for a general introduction to a subject or for one specific
    piece of information?
These decisions will influence your choice of search tool. This is important, as no single search tool is right for every type of Internet search. Subject directories
If you are searching for information on a general topic, start with a subject directory . These provide browseable categories, e.g. Health, Business, Computers. You can also search by word within the index. The Library provides links to four types of subject directories
providing links to the most popular directories, e.g. Yahoo
providing links to directories compiled by librarians or designed more for academic use, e.g. BUBL

What are you really searching?
Finding the Web documents (a.k.a. Web "pages" or " sites ") you want can be easy or seem impossibly difficult. This is in part due to the sheer size of the WWW, currently estimated to contain 3 billion documents. It is also because the WWW is not indexed in any standard vocabulary. Unlike a library's catalogs, in which can use standardized Library of Congress subject headings to find books in most large, general libraries in the U.S., in Web searching you are always guessing what words will be in the pages you want to find or guessing what subject terms were chosen by someone to organize a web page or site covering some topic. When you do what is called "searching the Web," you are NOT searching it directly. It is not possible to search the WWW directly.
