Thesaurus Based Web Searching

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 166)


Search engine technology has become quite popular to help users seek information available on the web. The success of a searching system is determined by the quality and efficiency of the search results. There may be very good items on the search topic in other languages, but, search engine will generally retrieve items of only one language. Most of these search engines use pattern search which is not efficient. In this paper we present a tool that addresses this problem. Here we discuss the work carried out in developing an efficient tool that retrieves all the items of the database relevant to search term, not just the term matching. This tool retrieves all the synonym matches from both Telugu and English languages.
