I was not sure what the OP was asking but web pages can be rather transient 
and maybe the best citations are direct quotes with URL and ideally an
archive URL. I had just written some scripts to scan a URL for bibtex entries
to more permanent articles but maybe a page scraper scripts would help in this case? 
I do vaguely recall modifying one bibtex entry type for my owny use and that process is not too difficult
if you want to add specific features.

Are you asking which bib entry-types to use?

Check The LaTeX Companion, 2e, pg 763
for the list of entry types.

In my own papers I use the inproceedings type.
This usage has a number of problems:
* booktitle what to call the 'proceedings'
* author, this can be found in the history of the page

The misc entry-type may be appropriate.
While no fields are required in misc
author, title, howpublished, month, year, and note
are the optional fields listed.
