Generally, search engines perform the ranking of web pages in an offline mode, which is after the web pages have been retrieved and stored in the database. The existing HITS algorithm (Kleinberg, 1996) operates in an offline mode to perform page rank calculation. In this project, we have implemented an online mode of page ranking for this algorithm. This will improve the overall performance of the Search Engine. This report describes the approach used to implement and test this algorithm. Comparison results performed against other existing search engines are also presented in this report. This is helpful in describing the efficiency of implemented algorithm.
