Query clustering using user logs

Ji-Rong Wen, Jian-Yun Nie, Hong-Jiang Zhang
2002 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
This paper describes a new query clustering method that makes use of user logs which allow us to identify the documents the users have selected for a query.  ...  Our experiments show that a combination of both keywords and user logs is better than using either method alone.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank Jon Rosenberg, Kevin Cretin, Bob O'Brien and Harish Jayanti of the Microsoft Encarta group for providing us with the data and giving us much helpful feedback  ...

Effective anonymization of query logs

Yuan Hong, Xiaoyun He, Jaideep Vaidya, Nabil Adam, Vijayalakshmi Atluri
2009 Proceeding of the 18th ACM conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '09  
User search query logs have proven to be very useful, but have vast potential for misuse.  ...  Query logs are different in several important aspects, such as the diversity of queries and the causes of privacy breach.  ...  CONCLUSIONS AND FUTURE WORK Web search query logs of users have a number of uses including user behavior analysis, query characterization, among others.  ...

Semantic Microaggregation for the Anonymization of Query Logs [chapter]

Arnau Erola, Jordi Castellà-Roca, Guillermo Navarro-Arribas, Vicenç Torra
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Web search engines gather information from the queries performed by the user in the form of query logs.  ...  We provide a novel approach to anonymize query logs so they ensure user k-anonymity, by extending a common method used in statistical disclosure control: microaggregation.  ...  If the users in the same cluster do not share any interest, the protected query logs can be useless, that is, the resulting search logs are too much distorted and we cannot obtain useful information from  ...

Incorporating variability in user behavior into systems based evaluation

Ben Carterette, Evangelos Kanoulas, Emine Yilmaz
2012 Proceedings of the 21st ACM international conference on Information and knowledge management - CIKM '12  
We show how to cluster posterior distributions to discover patterns of user interactions in logs, and discuss how to use the clusters to evaluate search engines according to a user model.  ...  We present a Bayesian approach to using logs to compute posterior distributions for probabilistic models of user interactions.  ...  CLUSTERING PROFILES Clustering query logs is useful for discovering patterns in the ways users are interacting with an engine.  ...

Using ephemeral clustering and query logs to organize web image search results on mobile devices

Jose G. Moreno, Gaël Dias
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 international ACM workshop on Interactive multimedia on mobile and portable devices - IMMPD '11  
For that purpose, we suggest to expand the original query based on labels of Ephemeral Clusters and compare it to a Query Log based approach.  ...  In this paper, we present two different strategies to cluster results gathered from an image search engine and propose an adapted interface for handled devices.  ...  Ephemeral clustering showed more compact results compared to Query Logs, but Query Logs evidenced better user acceptance rates.  ...

2001 Proceedings of the 24th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '01  
This paper describes our attempt to cluster similar queries according to their contents as well as the document click information in the user logs.  ...  Due to the short length of queries, the traditional approaches based on keywords are not suitable for query clustering.  ...  Therefore, a clustering approach using solely the keywords in queries will not be effective.
