One of the major problems for seamlessly electronic business is how to find a suitable web services. Only the syntax and semantic comparison do not precisely find the suitable web services for they are procedures embedded with a complicated thought. In this paper, we propose an effective approach based on the ontology to solve this problem. With the help of ontology-based metrics, we can measure a web service matching degree to a given request and determine the rank in which the advertisement matches the request. Simulations are also performed, and the results show that our method can have a good precision and recall rate.
