The approach of AntWeb is inspired by ant colonies foraging behavior to adaptively mark the most significant link by means of the shortest route to arrive the target pages. The system considers the users in the Web portal as artificial ants and the links among the pages of the Web pages as the researching network. To identify the group of the visitors, Web mining is applied to extract knowledge based on preprocessing Web log files. The chapter describes the theory, model, main utilities and implementation of AntWeb prototype in Interlegis Web portal. The case study shows Off-line Web mining; simulations without and with the use of AntWeb; testing by modification of the parameters. The result demonstrates the sensibility and accessibility of AntWeb and the benefits for the Interlegis Web users.
