Project Description: The purpose of this project was to improve the Hypertext-Induced Topic Selection (HITS)-based algorithms on Web documnets. The HITS algorithm is a very popular and effective algorithm to rank Web documents based on link information among a set of documents. In this project, to improve the HITS algorithm, the base document is collected from multiple search engines, different weights are assigned adaptively depending on the rankings from Web search engines, expert agreement, and content analysis.
