Abstract: The major problem faced by the users of web search is the quality and quantity of the results return by any search engine. Personalisation is a popular remedy for this problem. There are many factors that affect personalisation and many systems have been proposed to address a specific issue of personalisation in web search. No single system exists in literature that incorporates the entire spectrum of factors that affect personalisation of web search. This paper aims towards providing an architecture that integrates the various personalisation factors for effective search through the world wide web.

Keywords: web search; personalisation; architecture; semantic web; personalised searching; information retrieval.
