Query Phrase Suggestion from Topically Tagged Session Logs [chapter]

Eric C. Jensen, Steven M. Beitzel, Abdur Chowdhury, Ophir Frieder
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We find that suggesting query phrases other users have found it necessary to add for a given query (mined from session logs) dramatically improves the quality of suggestions over simply using cooccurrence  ...  To mitigate this, we tag query phrases with higher level topical categories to mine more general rules, finding that this enables us to make suggestions for approximately 10% more queries while maintaining  ...  Mining suggestions from other users' behavior in a query session log. 2. Tagging query phrases with topical categories to mine more general rules.  ...

Using query log and social tagging to refine queries based on latent topics

Lidong Bing, Wai Lam, Tak-Lam Wong
2011 Proceedings of the 20th ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '11  
The proposed model exploits a latent topic space, which is automatically derived from the query log, to assess the semantic dependency of terms in a query.  ...  Based on the observation that different users may tag the same resource with different tags of similar meaning, we propose a method to mine these term pairs for new candidate query construction.  ...  discovered from the query log.  ...

Identifying the Names of Complex Search Tasks with Task-Related Entities

Ting-Xuan Wang, Wen-Hsiang Lu
2016 International Journal of Computational Linguistics and Chinese Language Processing  
To understand and improve user behavior when searching a complex task, we propose an entity-driven complex task model (ECTM) based on exploiting microblogs and query logs.  ...  Understanding complex tasks with task-related entities can allow a search engine to suggest integrated search results for each sub-task simultaneously.  ...  Given an input query q and query logs Q, we first separate queries in the query logs into search sessions by the time gap of 24 hours.  ...

the patterns generated from query log data.  ...  The proposed model exploits a latent topic space, which is automatically derived from the query log, to detect semantic dependency of terms in a query and dependency among topics.  ...  In this work, the topic-based interest profile is derived from the history queries of a user. However, as discussed in the paper, some users may not have abundant history queries.  ...

Web Document Clustering and Visualization Results of Semantic Web Search Engine Using V-Ranking

S. K. Jayanthi, S. Prema
2011 Journal of clean energy technologies  
The similarity between two queries may be deduced from the common documents the users selected for them.  ...  This paper describes a new Web Document Clustering method that makes use of user logs which allow identifying the documents the users have selected for a query.  ...  Typically, a query session is made up of the query and the subsequent activities the user performed, which can be extracted from query logs.  ...

Supporting Complex Search Tasks

Ahmed Hassan Awadallah, Ryen W. White, Patrick Pantel, Susan T. Dumais, Yi-Min Wang
2014 Proceedings of the 23rd ACM International Conference on Conference on Information and Knowledge Management - CIKM '14  
These tasks often involve multiple search queries and can span multiple sessions. Current search systems do not provide adequate support for tackling these tasks.  ...  In this paper, we propose methods to automatically mine search logs for tasks and build an association graph connecting multiple tasks together.  ...  [28] presented a method to generate query suggestions by substituting the whole query or its sub phrases by new phrases collected from other searchers' querying behavior.  ...

Learning Semantic Query Suggestions [chapter]

Edgar Meij, Marc Bron, Laura Hollink, Bouke Huurnink, Maarten de Rijke
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We apply our method to the task of linking queries from real-world query logs (the transaction logs of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision) to the DBpedia knowledge base.  ...  We study the problem of semantic query suggestion, a special type of query transformation based on identifying semantic concepts contained in user queries.  ...  As to related work on query suggestions, some approaches use query logs to determine which queries or which rewrites occur frequently [18] .  ...
