Impact of search results on user queries

Sofia Stamou, Lefteris Kozanidis
2009 Proceeding of the eleventh international workshop on Web information and data management - WIDM '09  
The application of our model on a search trace of 19,250 queries issued to Google by 18 users over a period of two months reveals that in overall search results influence the specification of 12.79% of  ...  Based on the analysis of the user querying trends and web visits on the query results, we propose a model that tries to capture the results' influence on the specification of the subsequent user queries  ...  Although there exist several works on how people search for information on the web [6] [3] [10] [8] , most of the reported works concentrate on identifying the search goals associated with web queries  ...

Intentional query suggestion

Markus Strohmaier, Mark Kröll, Christian Körner
2009 Proceedings of the 2009 workshop on Web Search Click Data - WSCD '09  
The degree to which users' make their search intent explicit can be assumed to represent an upper bound on the level of service that search engines can provide.  ...  Our preliminary results indicate that intentional query suggestions 1) diversify search result sets (i.e. it reduces result set overlap) and 2) have the potential to yield higher click-through rates than  ...  The search query log data is split into two files, one file containing attributes Time, Query, QueryID and ResultCount, the other one attributes QueryID, Query, Time, URL and Position providing click-through  ...

Linked Data Metrics for Flexible Expert Search on the Open Web [chapter]

Milan Stankovic, Jelena Jovanovic, Philippe Laublet
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose an approach for adapting the expert search process (choosing the right type of trace and the right expertise hypothesis) to the given topic of expertise, by relying on Linked Data metrics.  ...  The existing expert search approaches are mostly limited to one corpus and one particular type of tracesometimes even to a particular domain.  ...  The Model of User Traces on the Linked Data Web Definition 1.  ...
