With a growing number of web services, discovering services that can match with a user’s query becomes a big challenging task. It’s very tedious for a service consumer to select the appropriate one according to her/his needs. In this paper, we propose WS-Portal; An Enriched Web Services Search Engine which contains 7063 providers, 115 sub-classes of category and 22236 web services crawled from the Internet. In WS-Portal, severals technologies are employed to improve the effectiveness of web services discovery (i.e. web services clustering, tags recommendation, services rating and monitoring).
