Abstract: We propose and discuss the automation of webpage quality determination. As part of this automation, we have developed an extensive set of criteria for determining webpage quality. We have also developed a set of measures for each criterion. We have designed and implemented a flexible system that uses these measures and computes a quality-score of a webpage automatically. The system is flexible in the sense that the set of quality criteria can be easily adapted to different domain context. To our knowledge, this is the first major work that automates the process of webpage quality determination using an extensive multi-faceted set of criteria and domain knowledge.

Keywords: webpage quality; information quality; quality criteria; criteria measures; quality determination automation; web pages; websites; internet.
