Personalizing Mobile Web Search for Location Sensitive Queries

Ourdia Bouidghaghen, Lynda Tamine, Mohand Boughanem
2011 2011 IEEE 12th International Conference on Mobile Data Management  
We believe that identifying user's geographic intent in Web search can help to personalize search results by ranking local search results higher in the search results lists.  ...  In mobile Web search, the expected results for some queries could vary depending upon the user's location.  ...  Web search: A strong motivation of personalized Web search is that queries are inherently ambiguous.  ...

People searching for people

Wouter Weerkamp, Richard Berendsen, Bogomil Kovachev, Edgar Meij, Krisztian Balog, Maarten de Rijke
2011 Proceedings of the 34th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in Information - SIGIR '11  
We present experiments on automatic classification of queries.  ...  Based on an extensive analysis of the logs of a search engine geared towards finding people, we propose a classification scheme for people search at three levels: (a) queries, (b) sessions, and (c) users  ...  It is estimated that 11-17% of web queries contain a person name, and, more so, 4% of web queries are person name queries only [1] .  ...

Searching for people on Web search engines

Amanda Spink, Bernard J. Jansen, Jan Pedersen
2004 Journal of Documentation  
The specific research questions addressed in the study are: "Do personal names form a major part of queries to Web search engines?"; "What are the characteristics of personal name Web searching?"  ...  ; and "How effective is personal name Web searching?". Random samples of queries from two Web search engines were analyzed.  ...  The authors thank the anonymous reviewers for their helpful comments, and AlltheWeb.com and Alta Vista.com for providing the Web query data sets without which thay could not have conducted this research  ...

Towards breaking the quality curse

Dmitri V. Kalashnikov, Rabia Nuray-Turan, Sharad Mehrotra
2008 Proceedings of the 31st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '08  
However, when a person name is queried, the returned webpages often contain documents related to several distinct namesakes who have the queried name.  ...  Searching for people on the Web is one of the most common query types to the web search engines today.  ...  The reason is that it requires on average 4360 × 8 web search queries to the API per person name. Many search engines do not allow that many queries per day.  ...

Question Classification in Spanish and Portuguese [chapter]

Thamar Solorio, Manuel Pérez-Coutiño, Manuel Montes-y-Gómez, Luis Villaseñor-Pineda, Aurelio López-López
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present in this work a method for question classification in Spanish and Portuguese. The method relies on lexical features and attributes extracted from the Web.  ...  A machine learning algorithm, namely Support Vector Machines is successfully trained on these features.  ...  Following this trend, we propose using the Web in order to acquire information that can be used as attributes in our classification problem.  ...

2009 Proceedings of the 18th international conference on World wide web - WWW '09  
We demonstrate the effectiveness of this method in three different applications, i.e., travel, job, and person name. In each of the three cases, only a couple of seed intent queries are provided.  ...  In this paper, we propose a general methodology to the problem of query intent classification.  ...  For example, for the query "john smith pictures", we consider this query has personal name intent. Personal names are an important kind of Web query in Web search.  ...
