Utilize Information Accumulated in Gateway

      Disclosed is a system to utilize information which goes through
gateways.  A lot of information goes through gateways in a network
like Internet.  This system can be searched for certain documents,
and it can  give information about the network, for example, the best
100 homepages  that have been watched frequently in this month.

      The Figure shows an example of this system.  A user in Client
11 searches a document in Server 1 through Gateway 1.  Gateway 1
informs Search Server of the place of the document.  Search Server
gets the document from the server and makes an index for search.
Other users search documents in Server through Gateway 1.  Gateway 1
informs Search Server of the places.  Search Server can get the
information about the places from other gateways.  Search Server can
get the documents, and make an index for the documents.  New
documents can be added to the index automatically.  The user can get
the documents accumulated by searching Search Server.  And the user
can get the best 100 documents that have been searched frequently in
this month.

      There are huge documents in networks like Internet.  And the
number of documents grow rapidly.  To use this system, an amount of
the documents to be indexed can be limited to only the documents
someone actually searched.
