SEARCHSENSE: A SEMANTIC META SEARCH ENGINE

Maged El-Sayed
2018 International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Information Sciences  
This article highlights the main reasons for ineffective web searches and sheds the lights on the status of ongoing research stream, the SearchSense project, which focuses on improving the effectiveness  ...  SearchSense employs the semantic technology to bridge the gap between search engines and their users and to provide a better presentation of web search results.  ...  An effective retrieval solution must be able to take these differences into consideration and process the right document semantics depending on the domain of the web search.  ...

A Survey on Automatically Mining Facets for Web Queries

Duhita V. Pawar, Vina M. Lomte
2017 International Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering (IJECE)  
Researchers proposed different efficient techniques which improves the user's web query search experiences magnificently.  ...  Facets are any word or phrase which summarize an important aspect about the web query.  ...  QD mining approach is different than the existing approach in two ways: 1) Open domain: Queries are not related to specific domain. 2) Query dependant: Facets are extracted from top retrieved documents  ...

Aggregated click-through data in a homogeneous user community

Mingfang Wu, Andrew Turpin, Justin Zobel
2008 Proceedings of the 31st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '08  
There are many proposed methods for using clickthrough data for common queries to improve the quality of search results returned for that query.  ...  In this study we examine the search behaviour of users in a close-knit community on such queries.  ...  This cache log includes 540,424 queries that were sent to a well known web search engine for the period January to October in 2006.  ...

Automatic Query Reformulation Using Classification in Web Searching

Ralla Suresh, Kurmachalam Ajay Kumar
2012 International Journal of Computer Science and Informatics  
The search query is a set of words or phrases a user enters when looking for information on a specific topic or subject.  ...  Classification and Prediction are two forms of query analysis that can be used to extract models describing frequently used query classes or to predict the reformulation for the query..  ...  We discuss how this model can be used to improve Web search engines.
