Web is a system of interlinked hypertext documents accessed via Internet. Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that serve billions of users worldwide. The huge amount of documents on the web is challenging for web search engines. Web contains multiple copies of the same content or same web page. Many of these pages on the Web are duplicates and near duplicates of other pages. Web search engines face substantial problems due to such duplicate and near duplicate web pages. These pages enlarge the space required to store the index, increase the cost of serving results and so frustrates the users. To assist search engines to provide search results free of redundancy to users and to provide distinct useful results on the first page, duplicate and near duplicate detection is required. The proposed approach will detect near duplicate web pages to increase search effectiveness and storage efficiency of search engine.
