Abstract
Segmenting a web page is often one of the initial steps when performing some data mining on that page. We acknowledge that there is a lot of research in the area of segmentation based on visual perception of the web page. In this paper we propose a method how to improve the efficiency of virtually all vision-based segmentation algorithms. Our method, called Cluster-based Page Segmentation, takes the widely spread concept of web templates and utilizes it to improve the efficiency of vision-based page segmentation by clustering web pages and performing the segmentation on the cluster instead of on each page in that cluster. To prove the efficiency of our algorithm we offer experimental results gathered using three different vision-based segmentation algorithms.
