It is a common experience to the web users with the existing search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask, e.t.c., that the information related to the entered query returns a long ranked list of results (snippets). It becomes cumbersome to the user to go through each title, snippet and even sometimes link of the search results until relevant results are found to the query. Clustering of search results is a special technique in data mining using which the retrieved results are organized into meaningful groups enlightening the user work. This paper deals with the generalized Suffix tree based clustering approach. The most repeated phrase in the document tags is considered as cluster name. Thus in short, web search results that are fetched from the prevailing web search engines grouped under phrases that contain one or more search keywords. This paper aims at organizing web search results into clusters facilitating quick browsing options to the browser providing an excellent interface to results precisely. Suffix tree clustering produces comparatively more accurate and informative grouped results. A basic problem during image searching in any search engine is Image Repetition. This can be avoided by using the L-Point Comparison algorithm, a specially worked out technique in field of Information Retrieval systems, is also discussed with a practical example.
