The number of Web sites has noticeably increased to roughly 224 million in last ten years. This means there is a rapid growth of information on the Internet. Although search engines can help users to filter their desired information, the searched result is normally presented in the form of a very long list, and users have to visit each Web page in order to determine the appropriateness of the result. This leads to a considerable amount of time has to be spent on finding the required information. To address this issue, this paper proposes a Web assessment approach in order to provide an overview of the information on a Website using an integration of existing summarisation and visualisation techniques, which are text summarisation, tag cloud, Document Type View, and interactive features. This approach is capable to reduce the time required to identify and search for information from the Web.
