The term web genre denotes the type of a given web resource, in contrast to the topic of its content. In this research, we focus on recognizing the web genres blog, wiki and forum. We present a set of features that exploit the hierarchical structure of the web pageâ€™s HTML mark-up and thus, in contrast to related approaches, do not depend on a linguistic analysis of the pageâ€™s content. Our results show that it is possible to achieve a very good accuracy for a fully language independent detection of structured web genres. features (e.g. part-of-speech tagging and document terms), structural features (e.g. HTML tag frequencies, use of facets used to enable functionalities like form input elements) and simple text statistics (e.g. frequencies of punctuation). However, a fact often neglected by related work is that the absolute dominance of the English language on the web is decreasing. Thus, it is important to develop a way of recognizing web genres independently of the language used on the respective web page. As many genres exhibit a certain structural and visual layout, this property enables to ignore linguistic features altogether.
