The traditional techniques rely on human effort to acquire training sets, which is expensive and inefficient. In this paper we present an alternative method to automatically acquire training sets without heavy investment of user efforts. The proposed method tends to fill a gap for effectiveness of using Web data in Web mining, and contributes to Web information gathering. The evaluation shows that the method is adequate to yield an promising achievement
