In this paper, we propose a Web mining approach for the Semantic Web. The approach uses a search engine and the traditional web as a source of information to produce semantically rich information. In particular, we assess one community and obtain the social network and related information from the Web. As an example, we extract the social network of an academic society and show that extracted information can be incorporated into FOAF representation and utilized to measure the authoritativeness of a member in terms of social trust or individual trust. To demonstrate our Web mining approach in the real application, we show a researcher mining and retrieval system. Finally, we discuss the manner in which the Web mining approach contributes to availability to users of the Semantic Web.
