Present a new method for automatically extracting Search Result Records(SRRs) and Subsequent Result Page Links(SRPLs) from a search engine’s response page. Compare the similarity of nodes on the HTML tags tree of a valid response page to recognize Candidated Records Blocks(CRBs).And recognize SRRs and SRPLs form CRBs based on several heuristic rules.Then building wrapper for them using their location on tags tree. Experiments and comparison with other methods show that the methed is useful and efficient.

Key wordsSearch engine      Web information extraction      Wrapper generation      HTML tags tree      Nodes similarity
