Traditional search engines do not consider document quality in ranking search results. The paper discusses the Hyperlink Vector Voting method which adds a qualitative dimension to its rankings by factoring in the number and descriptions of hyperlinks to the document.

Beyond relevance ranking: hyperlink vector voting

A new method for hypertext indexing and retrieval called Hyperlink Vector Voting (HVV) is proposed. It combines relevance ranking and quality ranking for hypertext retrieval systems. Ranking of

A Voting Method for XML Retrieval

The retrieval approach proposed by the SIG/EVI group of the IRIT research centre in INEX'2004 evaluation uses a voting method coupled with some processes to answer content only and content and structure queries.

Webpage Ranking Algorithms Second Exam Report

The survey focuses on an overview of eight selected search ranking algorithms that strive to improve the quality of search results: (1) the meaning of the search query; and (2) the relevancy of the result in relation to user’s intention.

IRIT at INEX 2003

This paper describes the retrieval approaches proposed by IRIT in INEX’2003 evaluation and discusses a second approach based on a voting method previously applied in the context of automatic text categorization.

A semantic taxonomy-based personalizable meta-search agent

This work presents a methodology and architecture for an agent-based system, called WebSifter II, that captures the semantics of a user's decision-oriented search intent, transforms the semantic query into target queries for existing search engines, and then ranks the resulting page hits according to a user-specified weighted-rating scheme.

Web Structure Mining

This chapter covers the basic properties, concepts and models of the Web graph, as well as the main link ranking and Web page clustering algorithms. We also address important algorithmic issues such

Intelligent Web Search via Personalizable Meta-search Agents

A methodology and architecture for an agent-based system, WebSifter, that captures the semantics of a user's search intent, transforms the semantic query into target queries for existing search engines, and ranks resulting page hits according to a user-specified, weighted-rating scheme.

Implementation of two-tier link extractor in optimized search engine filtering system

This research is towards the link extractor's architectural design, which involves in the process of elimination, by document comparison methods with the help of some filters, to reduce the access time of the users.

Chapter 10 World Wide Web Search Engines

This chapter provides an overview of the existing technologies for Web search engines and classifies them into six categories: i) hyperlink exploration, ii) information retrieval, iii) metasearches, iv) SQL approaches, v) content-based multimedia searches, and vi) others.

Searching for information in a hypertext medical handbook

This approach responds to a query by initially treating each hypertext card as a full-text document, which utilizes information about document structure to propagate weights to neighboring cards and produces a ranked list of potential starting points for graphical browsing.
