Özet

Increase in the amount of information on the Web has caused the need for accurate automated classifiers for Web pages to maintain Web directories and to increase search engines' performance. As every (HTML/XML) tag and every term on each Web page can be considered as a feature, we need efficient methods to select best features to reduce feature space of the Web page classification problem. In this study, our aim is to apply a recent optimization technique namely the firefly algorithm (FA), to select best features for Web page classification problem. The firefly algorithm (FA) is a metaheuristic algorithm, inspired by the flashing behavior of fireflies.
