Web Mining is moving the World Wide Web to a more useful environment in which users can quickly and easily find the information they need. It includes the discovery and analysis of data, documents, and multimedia from the World Wide Web. Web Mining is discovery of document content, hyperlink structure, access statistics and other interesting connections of information on the Web. It is interdisciplinary in nature, spanning across such fields as information retrieval, natural language processing, information extraction, machine learning, database, data mining, data warehousing, knowledge management, user interface design, and visualization.
