Snippets are textual information present on web pages and are the basic foundation for the index building process of most search engines. Previous works in webpage ranking use techniques for ranking webpages while considering snippets to be plain text, without exploiting the rich semantic information available from the HTML content. An HTML document not only contains snippets, but also describes semantics of that snippet and the structure of the entire document. In this paper we propose a snippet ranking algorithm which uses semantic HTML tags, that embeds the snippet, and the underlying structure of the webpage for assigning ranks. This allows a more precise ranking compared to considering snippets as plain text.
