Because the amount of information contained on the Deep Web is much larger than the surface web, how to use it well has become a popular problem to research. When a query is sent to a deep web resource and the data sources return few results or even no result, a proper query relaxation solution should be adopted to get more satisfactory results to users. In this paper, such a query relaxation solution is presented. First, it solves the problem of relaxing attributes which contain multiple key words by value. That is, such attributes are not simply removed in the relaxation, but the query values of the attributes are modified. Second, when a data source returns many result pages, instead of getting all the pages, it evaluates the quality of the results in the current page to decide whether to send another query to fetch the next page. Thus, the number of query times is reduced. Finally, the experimental results demonstrate that both the result quality and the query efficiency are improved.
