Abstract: The World Wide Web (WWW) has evolved to be a major source of information. This has brought about an overwhelming feeling of having too much information and being unable to find or interpret data. In addition, since most content in HTML format is designed primarily for browsing, it is not amendable to machine processing such as database style manipulation and querying. Thus to obtain valuable information on the web, data must first be organized and indexed. This can be done by some form of web structuring, through discovering and building an ontology which describes the organization of specific web sites. By building good ontologies from WWW, data can be easily shared and reused across applications and different communities. This research aims to analyze the inherent structure and knowledge of the web in order to build good ontologies and utilize them to perform information extraction, information retrieval and question answering.
