Searching the vast and distributed structure of the web requires the efficient search schemes. Semantic annotation is used to associate the meaningful tags with a document to perform semantic search. This paper puts forward an automatic approach for annotating web documents for efficient information retrieval. The proposed algorithm for semantic annotation constitutes five rules based on ontology and provides the semantic tags along with the degree of correlation between a tag and the consequent web document. As the annotation would be done automatically, the results obtained for a query would always be relevant and thus the improved precision and recall.
