I have to deal with a text classification problem. A web crawler crawls webpages of a certain domain and for each webpage I want to find out whether it belongs to only one specific class or not. That is, if I call this class Positive, each crawled webpage belongs either to class Positive or to class Non-Positive.
I already have a large training set of webpages for class Positive. But how to create a training set for class Non-Positive which is as representative as possible? I mean, I could basically use each and everything for that class. Can I just collect some arbitrary pages that definitely do not belong to class Positive? I'm sure the performance of a text classification algorithm (I prefer to make use of a Naive Bayes algorithm) highly depends on which webpages I choose for class Non-Positive.
So what shall I do? Can somebody please give me an advice? Thank you very much!
