The main purpose of this paper was to check how close is Web to the structure of Close Navigable graph. Close Navigable Graph - graph, where any given node can be found starting from any random node using only local information. In this paper nodes of the graph are web pages, local information – text on web page. We wanted to simulate whether it is possible for implemented greedy local search to find a given web page, by using tf-idf transformation and cosine similarity as metric to move in starting node neighborhood. We want to gather statistics of successful search and investigate whether it is possible to use such heuristics to navigate the Web.
