Abstract: Most search engine systems mainly focusing on developing Western languages such as English so these search engine systems have a high performance on these languages but they dont have the same performance when they are used for Eastern languages such as Arabic. Furthermore, Arabic is a highly inflected language that has a complex morphological structure, so search engines always have a challenge to find the best ranked list to the users query from those huge numbers of pages. A lot of search results that correspond to a users query are not relevant to the users need. Most of the page ranking algorithms use link-based ranking (web structure) or content-based ranking to calculate the relevancy of the information to the users need but those ranking algorithms might not be enough to provide a good ranked list for the Arabic search. So in this study, we proposed an efficient Arabic information retrieval system using a new Arabic hybrid usage-based ranking algorithm called AEHURA. The objective of this algorithm is to overcome the drawbacks of the ranking algorithms and improve the efficiency of Arabic web searching.
