The hasty growth of the web is causing the stable growth of information, leading to several problems such as an increased difficulty of extracting potentially useful knowledge. The huge amount of information available online, the World Wide Web is a fertile area for data mining research. The research in web mining aims to develop new techniques to effectively extract and mine useful knowledge or information from these web pages. Due to the heterogeneity and lack of structure of Web data, automated discovery of targeted or unexpected knowledge/information is a challenging task. In this paper, we survey the research in the area of Web mining, point out the categories of Web mining and variety of techniques used in those categories.In thispaper we elicit research scope in the areas of web usage mining, web content mining, web structure mining and concluded this study with a brief discussion on data managing, querying, representation issues.
