Abstract: Due with the exponential growth of information on the web, web is becoming the primary source of information for everyone. As the numbers of user increasing, organizations are making their data available on the web on daily basis. Web contains structured and unstructured information that can provide meaning full insight into the web data. Due to the sheer volume and dynamic nature of web data manual extraction of knowledge is an uphill task therefore an automatic information extraction techniques with good accuracy are needed to utilize the full potential of the web as information resource and organizing and describing the web content is essential. Machine Learning approaches can efficiently be used to extract knowledge from the web data according the user requirements and interests automatically. The objective of this paper is to review the literature and provide a critical evaluation of how to improve information retrieval, extract knowledge from web contents, functionality and implementation of the proposed work. The paper focuses on the limitations of the existing IE implementation methods, evaluation techniques, models, their practices and provides overall summary
