Abstract
Web clustering assists users of a search engine by presenting search results as clusters of related pages. Many clustering algorithms with different characteristics have been developed: but the lack of a standardized web clustering evaluation method that can evaluate clusterings with different characteristics has prevented effective comparison of algorithms. The paper solves this by introducing a new structure for defining general ideal clusterings and new measurements for evaluating clusterings with different characteristics by comparing them against the general ideal clustering.
