DocAnalyser - Find Similar and Related Web Documents

What is DocAnalyser?

DocAnalyser is a new service that offers you novel way to search for similar and related web documents and to track topics without the need to enter search queries manually. You just need to provide a web content to be analysed. DocAnalyser then extracts its main topics and their sources (important inherent, influential aspects / basics) and uses them as search words.
