Improving category specific Web search by learning query modifications

E.J. Glover, G.W. Flake, S. Lawrence, W.P. Birmingham, A. Kruger, C.L. Giles, D.M. Pennock
Proceedings 2001 Symposium on Applications and the Internet  
We present an automated method for learning query modifications that can dramatically improve precision for locating pages within specified categories using web search engines.  ...  These algorithms are used to improve category specific search in the Inquirus 2 search engine.  ...  We use a classifier to recognize web pages of a specific category and learn modifications to queries that bias results toward documents in that category.  ...

Extracting query modifications from nonlinear SVMs

Gary W. Flake, Eric J. Glover, Steve Lawrence, C. Lee Giles
2002 Proceedings of the eleventh international conference on World Wide Web - WWW '02  
When searching the WWW, users often desire results restricted to a particular document category.  ...  Ideally, a user would be able to filter results with a text classifier to minimize false positive results; however, current search engines allow only simple query modifications.  ...  Previous versions of Inquirus 2 used hand-coded query modifications to improve the search performed by the search engines.  ...

Domain-specific web search with keyword spices

S. Oyama, T. Kokubo, T. Ishida
2004 IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering  
However, we can build a domain-specific search engine simply by adding domain-specific keywords, called "keyword spices," to the user's input query and forwarding it to a general-purpose Web search engine  ...  Existing methods for building domain-specific Web search engines require human expertise or specific facilities.  ...  This research was partially supported by the Laboratories of Image Information Science and Technology and by the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, and Culture, Grantin-Aid for Scientific Research  ...

Web Query Processing Approaches A Survey and Comparison

M. Manikantan, S. Duraisamy
2014 International Journal of Computer Applications  
The web search is enabled by navigating hyperlinks in a webpage or through search engines or by web programming.  ...  We can classify the evolutionary development of web query processing from database query processing and SQL optimizations as Learning and Adaptive query processing, Web query through HTML and web search  ...  The classifier and the tuples are designed to improve category-specific web search.  ...

Query Categorization from Web Search Logs Using Machine Learning Algorithms

Christian Højgaard, Joachim Sejr, Yun-Gyung Cheong
2016 International Journal of Database Theory and Application  
This paper presents a data-driven methodology to disambiguate a query by suggesting relevant subcategories within a specific domain.  ...  To predict the categories of a user input query, we employed machine learning algorithms. We present the preliminary evaluation results and conclude with future work.  ...  [16] present a method for locating documents within a specific category or topic in web search engines through the use of query modifications.  ...

MyNewsWave: User-centered Web search and news delivery

Clint Heyer, Jamie Madden, Kelly Hollingsworth, Peter Heydon, Keiran Bartlett, Joachim Diederich
2002 Australasian Document Computing Symposium  
The system uses knowledge sources such as WordNet to refine keyword queries and learns user-preferences with regard to web search.  ...  DigiMood is a component of MyNewsWave that classifies web pages into mood categories. Business news, for instance, can be classified by DigiMood to access market sentiment.  ...  Acknowledgements Special thanks to Harald Schuetz from Deutsche Welle (German Foreign Broadcasting Cooperation) who guided this research by providing valuable feedback.  ...

iAGENT: A Novel and Intelligent Assistant to Personalised Search

Sompa Malakar
2010 International Journal of Computer Applications  
The paper puts forward the concept of "iAGENT" which is an intelligent agent that assists a user to get relevant documents by modifying the query given by the user in accordance with the web pages previously  ...  This paper presents a novel approach to personalised search. By constantly learning and updating user profiles to the current needs of the user, relevant results are returned.  ...  simply forwards the same query to the search engine without any modification.  ...

Towards Real Intelligent Web Exploration [chapter]

Pavel Kalinov, Abdul Sattar, Bela Stantic
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Users can browse this structure or search within a particular category (context) by explicitly selecting it. Keyword relevance is not global but specific to a category.  ...  A significant problem of the dominant web search model is the lack of a realistic way to acquire user search context.  ...  This is served by web directories, which are now in decline (mainly due to not implementing machine learning).  ...

2013 International Journal of Computer Applications  
There are number of available search engines and the crawlers that accept the user query and provide the page search. But, there is still the requirement and scope to improve the search mechanism.  ...  Web crawling is the foremost step to perform the effective and efficient web content search so that the user will get the specific web pages initially in an indexed form.  ...  The work of web crawler is to process this query and identify the keywords from the query. By using these keywords the page search will be performed over the web.  ...
