Reappearance Layout Based Web Page Segmentation for Small Screen Devices
Normally web sites are designed for large screen devices and hence it is not easy to browse these pages with limited user interface devices such as palm and mobile. Web page segmentation is an important technology for both search engine and web browser on mobile device. Web page segmentation is a task that breaks down the structure of web page into logical blocks which is an important step for identifying informative blocks for efficient information extraction and convenient display on the devices with small size screens. Previous repetition based segmentation method is not suitable for segmenting blocks, when there is no reappearance tags in the web pages.
