It is commonly agree that, the efficiency of information gathering will result with a better decision making and quality of life. Day after day, information are being posted in the World Wide Web. In such a huge amount of un-categorised raw information, tools to help gathering relevant information like search engines and Web robots are being developed. However, a single method may not be enough to serve all kinds of people. Here, it has left some room for us to enhance the technologies and make the Web more useful.
