Web page clustering methods categorize and organize search results into semantically meaningful clusters that assist users with search refinement; but finding clusters that are semantically meaningful to users is difficult. In this paper, we describe a new Web page clustering algorithm, QDC, which uses the user's query as part of a reliable measure of cluster quality. The new algorithm has five key innovations: a new query directed cluster quality guide that uses the relationship between… CONTINUE READING

  • The unreliability of precision and recall can be seen in the experiments where the recall measure gives a higher ranking (almost 60%) to the random clustering than to one of the clearly better algorithms.
