Myself and Lindsay Marshall have done a fair amount of work extracing
metadata from HTML for purposes of citation. With a fair amount of
heuristics, we can get enough metadata for a full citation from about
60% of what you might call serious websites (i.e. those with technical
content). The general web is lower (about 1%) but most of the web
appears to be chinese pornography.

This is available as a tool at http://greycite.knowledgeblog.org/.

And fuller description is available at http://arxiv.org/abs/1304.7151.
