Characterizing web search queries that match very few or no results

Ismail Sengor Altingovde, Roi Blanco, Berkant Barla Cambazoglu, Rifat Ozcan, Erdem Sarigil, Özgür Ulusoy
2012 Proceedings of the 21st ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '12  
Despite the continuous efforts to improve the web search quality, a non-negligible fraction of user queries end up with very few or even no matching results in leading web search engines.  ...  Our experimental setup allows us to characterize the queries with few/no results and compare the mechanisms employed by the major search engines in handling them.  ...  CONCLUSION We provided a characterization of hard queries that match very few or no results in web search engines, which cope with such queries by suggesting alternative queries.  ...

Characterizing, predicting, and handling web search queries that match very few or no results

Erdem Sarigil, Ismail Sengor Altingovde, Roi Blanco, B. Barla Cambazoglu, Rifat Ozcan, Özgür Ulusoy
2017 Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
A non-negligible fraction of user queries end up with very few or even no matching results in leading commercial web search engines.  ...  In this work, we provide a detailed characterization of such queries and show that search engines try to improve such queries by showing the results of related queries.  ...  Conclusion We provided a characterization of queries that match very few or no results in major search engines.  ...

Characterizing Search Behavior in Web Archives

Miguel Costa, Mário J. Silva
2011 The Web Conference  
The results show that users did not spend much time and effort searching the past. They prefer short sessions, composed of short queries and few clicks.  ...  We contribute to this knowledge by presenting the first search behavior characterization of web archive users.  ...  RELATED WORK Web Archive User Studies There are several web archiving initiatives currently harvesting and preserving the web heritage, but very few studies about web archive users.  ...

Transparent Queries

Jack Muramatsu, Wanda Pratt
2001 Proceedings of the 24th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '01  
Typically, commercial Web search engines provide very little feedback to the user concerning how a particular query is processed and interpreted.  ...  Although these transformations have a pronounced effect on query results, users have very few resources for recognizing their existence and understanding their practical importance.  ...  However, the pervasive use of full text indexing and an ever expanding collection of extremely diverse documents on the web made it difficult for us to formulate a query that returned zero or very few  ...

Semantic Search on Text and Knowledge Bases

Hannah Bast, Björn Buchhold, Elmar Haussmann
2016 Foundations and Trends in Information Retrieval  
For the second query (female computer scientists working on semantic search), there is no single web page or other document with a corresponding Introduction list, let alone one matching the query words  ...  Think of the result screen from a typical web search engine. The results are nicely arranged and partly reformatted, so that we can digest them properly.  ...

Comparative Analysis of Semantic Search Engines Based on Requirement Space Pyramid

Maliha Majid Qureshi
2013 International Journal of Future Computer and Communication  
The research provides deep understanding of five main semantic search engines based on comparative analysis that may help for future work for semantic web in general and for semantic search engines in  ...  It identified the types of semantic queries the users need to make, the issues concerning the search development and the problems intrinsic to semantic search in particular.  ...  Cognition provides results where the data conceptually match, first it displays the results which contain exact words then the next group of results contains those documents which match to query terms  ...

Search advertising using web relevance feedback

Andrei Z. Broder, Peter Ciccolo, Marcus Fontoura, Evgeniy Gabrilovich, Vanja Josifovski, Lance Riedel
2008 Proceeding of the 17th ACM conference on Information and knowledge mining - CIKM '08  
Identifying relevant ads is challenging because queries are usually very short, and because users, consciously or not, choose terms intended to lead to optimal Web search results and not to optimal ads  ...  The business of Web search, a $10 billion industry, relies heavily on sponsored search, whereas a few carefully-selected paid advertisements are displayed alongside algorithmic search results.  ...  Since Onyx and LBQS use very different sources of knowledge (Web search results and search query logs, respectively), it is intuitive to understand that they perform well on very different query subsets  ...

Query by babbling

Douglas W. Oard
2012 Proceedings of the first workshop on Information and knowledge management for developing region - IKM4DR '12  
This paper proposes rethinking the conventional keyword query paradigm to instead develop systems that support a longer, richer, and more fluid interaction style that is better suited to both the affordances  ...  The scale of the Spoken Web is, however, limited because current speech retrieval technology is only affordably deployable for a handful of languages.  ...  It is easy to show the existence of a Boolean query that retrieves any desired set of documents, and moreover that very often such a query will retrieve no other documents.  ...

Terminology issues in user access to Web-based medical information

A T McCray, R F Loane, A C Browne, A K Bangalore
1999 Proceedings. AMIA Symposium  
The results show that the queries are primarily medical in content (94%), with only a small percentage (5.5%) relating to library services, and with a very small percentage (.5%) not being medically relevant  ...  We characterize the data set, and conclude with a discussion of our plans to develop a UMLS-based terminology server to assist NLM Web users.  ...  The search engine gives users the choice of exact or fuzzy searches and whether any or all of the terms in their query were to be matched (i.e., Boolean OR or AND).  ...

Robust classification of rare queries using web knowledge

Andrei Z. Broder, Marcus Fontoura, Evgeniy Gabrilovich, Amruta Joshi, Vanja Josifovski, Tong Zhang
2007 Proceedings of the 30th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '07  
We use a blind feedback technique: given a query, we determine its topic by classifying the web search results retrieved by the query.  ...  of a commercial web search engine.  ...  The volume of queries in today's search engines follows the familiar power law, where a few queries appear very often while most queries appear only a few times.  ...

A functionality taxonomy for document search engines [article]

Rik D.T. Janssen, Henderik A. Proper
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The taxonomy distinguishes seven functionality areas: an indexing service, user profiling, query composition, query execution, result presentation, result refinement, and history keeping.  ...  We use the word 'search engine' in the broadest sense possible, including library and web based (meta) search engines.  ...  Interesting research areas are e.g. portable user profiles, common development frameworks for search and retrieval engines, and the development of (components of) search engines.  ...

Kangaroo--a pattern-matching program for biological sequences

Doron Betel, Christopher W V Hogue
2002 BMC Bioinformatics  
Kangaroo is a web-based regular expression pattern-matching program that can search for patterns in DNA, protein, or coding region sequences in ten different organisms.  ...  The program is implemented to facilitate a wide range of queries with no restriction on the length or complexity of the query expression.  ...  The search results display the GenBank records for the selected organism that matched the query pattern.  ...

Recent results in automatic Web resource discovery

Soumen Chakrabarti
1999 ACM Computing Surveys  
A query to HITS is forwarded to a search engine such as Alta Vista, which retrieves a subgraph of the web whose nodes (pages) match the query. Pages citing or cited by these pages are also included.  ...  These results suggest that focused crawling is very effective for building high-quality collections of web documents on specific topics, using modest desktop hardware.  ...
