Finding Context Paths for Web Pages

by Yoshiaki Mizuuchi, Keishi Tajima


The contents of Web pages are often not self-contained. A page author often assumes all the readers of the page come through the same path, and he sometimes omit the information described in the pages on that path because the readers must already know it. Therefore, indexes used by search engines based on the contents of each page are also incomplete. In this paper, we propose a method of discovering those paths assumed by page authors, and of complementing the incomplete indexes with keywords extracted from the pages on those paths.
