The web has established itself as the dominant medium for doing electronic commerce. Realizing that its global reach provides significant market and business opportunities, service providers, both large and small are advertising their services on the web. A number of them operate their own web sites promoting their services at length while others are merely listed in a referral site. A tool, known as the YellowPager, for creating service directories by mining web sources is presented. The YellowPager builds service directories by mining the web through a combination of keyword-based search engines, web agents, text classifiers and novel extraction algorithms.
