In this chapter we shall present example information sources on the Web and the innovative techniques for exploiting business portals: Information Ants and Indexing Parsers. The former aims at efficient spotting of new or updated content in large hypertext-based collections of documents on the Web. This is particularly useful for mechanical filtering, as filters process only new content. The latter technique enables taking advantage of structured elements of contemporary markup-language-based Web documents. This concept also includes processing source-specific tags, defined by content providers.
