It is hard to maintain web applications due to rapid changes and the proliferation of various techniques applied to web applications. Several approaches, such as clustering or refactoring web applications, have been suggested to improve their maintainability. The similarity measure is one of the principal criteria in these approaches. Existing studies on web similarity focused on semantic or context similarity. Most of the existing clone detection techniques concentrated on general

The similarity clues include page relations, source and target entities, and parameters. WSIM can be classified in three levels and two directions. Six kinds of WSIMs are defined, and each WSIM has its own purpose. Finally, several experiments were conducted on simulated data and real open sources to validate the proposed WSIM.
