The major evolution of the semantic web has become exchanging data between applications in all domains of activities. Based on this vision, different applications in recent days, e.g. in the fields of community web portals, social networking, e-learning, multimedia retrieval, etc. have been designed. Due to growing number of web services, clustering of web resources becomes a valuable tool for semantic web mining. Clustering of internet objects like Internet web pages’ intimate new methods for grouping correlated content for better understanding and satisfies massive user query results in web pages’ search. Hence, web pages clustering algorithms should be able to handle massive irregular content and discover knowledge regardless of the web page complexity. These algorithms vary depending on the characteristics and data types. So, choosing the most appropriate algorithm is not an easy process as it should be accurate in terms of time and space complexity. Therefore, this paper rigorously surveys the most important algorithms of different types used for web page clustering. In addition, a comparative analysis of all such algorithms are provided in terms of several parameters. Finally, a brief discussion is provided on why web page clustering isimportant in emerging era of Semantic Web of Thing (SWoT) applications.
