Analysis of geographic queries in a search engine log

Qingqing Gan, Josh Attenberg, Alexander Markowetz, Torsten Suel
2008 Proceedings of the first international workshop on Location and the web - LOCWEB '08  
First, we identify typical properties of geographic search (geo) queries based on a manual examination of several thousand queries.  ...  Based on these observations, we build a classifier that separates the trace into geo and non-geo queries.  ...  To copy otherwise, to republish, to post on servers or to redistribute to lists, requires prior specific permission and/or a fee.
