Abstract


With the increase in digital documents on the World Wide Web and an increase in the number of webpages and blogs which are common sources for providing users with news about current events, aggregating and categorizing information from these sources seems to be a daunting task as the volume of digital documents available online is growing exponentially. Although several benefits can accrue from the accurate classification of such documents into their respective categories such as providing tools that help people to find, filter and analyze digital information on the web amongst others. Accurate classification of these documents into their respective categories is dependent on the quality of training dataset which is dependent on the preprocessing techniques. Existing literature in this area of web page classification identified that better document representation techniques would reduce the training and testing time, improve the classification accuracy, precision and recall of classifier. In this paper, we give an overview of web page classification with an in-depth study of the web classification process, while at the same time making awareness of the need for an adequate document representation technique as this helps capture the semantics of document and- also contribute to reduce the problem of high dimensionality.
