The World Wide Web (WWW) comprises enormous websites located around the world, and it is the cheapest source to publish information that instantly becomes accessible across the globe. The information available on the Internet is invariably increasing on the daily basis, which in turn is resulting in serious challenges for the researchers to retrieve the relevant information from huge bulk of data.
