Rating a page to be a best one, based only on Page Ranking algorithm of Brin and Page would be insufficient. This method relied totally on Link information alone. However, due to application of Soft Computing in Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, machines were made more effective, additional features of a Page involving its indexing, terms used, capitalizations, anchor texts, hit information, etc. were considered. The classification problem helped to induce this to a great extent. The complexity of dealing with a large number of web pages on the net made researchers to think of solutions dealing with sampling pages randomly and then making an analysis of the features of these pages. Soft Computing techniques were used for analysis of the features of the page.
