An Efficient Web Search Engine for Noisy Free

The vast growth, various dynamic and low quality of the world wide web makes it very difficult to retrieve relevant information from internet during query search. To resolve this issue, various web mining techniques are being used. The biggest challenge in web mining is to remove noisy data information or unwanted information from the webpage such as banner, video, audio, images, hyperlinks etc. which are not associated to a user query. To overcome these issues, a novel custom search engine is proposed with efficient algorithm in this paper. The proposed Uniform Resource Locator (URL) pattern extractor algorithm will extract the all relevance index pages from the web and ranking the indexes based on user query. Then, Noisy Data Cleaner (NDC) algorithm is applied to remove the unwanted content from the retrieved web pages. The results show that the proposed URL Pattern Extractor (UPE)+NDC algorithm provides very promising results for different datasets with high precision and recall rate in comparison with the existing algorithms.
