Search engines have become an essential opening to the large quantity of knowledge available in net and users usually look solely at the primary few pages of search results, the ranking will introduce a big to their sight of the web and their info gained. Most traditional search engine having vocabulary problem like polysemy, synonymy and they produce irrelevant information to the user. It helps to overcome such problems using personalization of the web searching process result based on the domain and user profile. In this, a paper we propose a new method for personalizing the web search results. We proposed a method is introduced a gawk web search personalize (GWSP) model to create the user profile to contain basic information and dynamically update the user profile. In the GWSP model optimize the user query in two ways are search query processing and search query optimizer with WordNet. Search query processing has performed the combining of domain and searching query. Search query optimizer provides the personalized search result with more relevant information to the user query using WordNet and user profile. We present a detailed explanation of model evaluation of the result is increasing the precision and recall value of the traditional search engines comparing to our proposed GWSP model and solved the above-mentioned problems. Finally comparing the new user and existing user searching time was improved.
