The World Wide Web enables documents to be connected by Links. Hypertext documents contain Links to other documents and files, which make their access trivial.

The Web is primarily media for information exchange and the amount of information in the Web is ever growing. Besides plain texts, especially multimedia information such as graphics, audio or video have become a predominant part of the web's information traffic.

The Web is big, really big. It is unbelievable how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is.

The Web 2.0 enabled simplified user participation. Wikis, Blogs, and Social Networking Sites allow non-technicians to publish their information. User are becoming publishers.

Challenges arise regarding how it is possible to find useful information within this huge information space. Traditional Search Engines will reach the limits of their power, when it comes to understanding information Content.
