Investigating variation in querying behavior for image searches on the web

Youngok Choi
2010 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
This study analyzed query iterations and query length during image searching processes on the Web from a naturalistic approach.  ...  It examined whether query iterations varied across contextual characteristics in an interactive Web searching process and determined if task goals and different content sources of query construction influenced  ...  Results from the analysis of a Tukey test indicate that a mean of query length on local site (M=2.23, SD=1.22) is significantly different from one either on general search engines or image search engines  ...

Geomodification in Query Rewriting

Wei Vivian Zhang, Benjamin Rey, Eugene Stipp, Rosie Jones
2006 Workshop on Geographic Information Retrieval  
Web searchers signal their geographic intent by using placenames in search queries. They also indicate their flexibility about geographic specificity by reformulating their queries.  ...  We examine both deliberate query rewriting, conducted in user search sessions, and automated query rewriting, with users evaluating the relevance of geo-modified queries.  ...  Query reformulation in search engines is extremely common [11, 6] but no previous work has studied the geographic component of query reformulation.  ...

Query Reformulation for Task-Oriented Web Searches

Nikos Kirtsis, Sofia Stamou
2011 2011 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conferences on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology  
In this paper we propose a query reformulation method to empower task-oriented web searches.  ...  Query reformulations are presented to the user in order to select the one that best suits her search intention.  ...  Our work conflates the objectives of search pattern analysis and query improvement into a single goal; that of reformulating web queries into task-descriptive web searches.  ...

Geographic intention and modification in web search

Rosie Jones, Wei V. Zhang, Benjamin Rey, Pradhuman Jhala, Eugene Stipp
2008 International Journal of Geographical Information Science  
Web searchers signal their geographic intent by using place-names in search queries. They also indicate their flexibility about geographic specificity by reformulating their queries.  ...  We also examine query rewriting: both deliberate query rewriting, conducted in web search sessions, and automated query rewriting, with manual relevance judgements of geo-modified queries.  ...  In Section 2 we give a brief overview of the technology we employ to identify placenames in web search queries.  ...
