  • 2004
We present an innovative approach to personalized Web search that exploits the search behaviour of a community of users to re-rank future result-lists according to the implied preferences of thisExpand
Next Generation Web Search : Setting Our Sites
The analysis of the hyperlink structure of the web has led to s ignificant improvements in web information retrieval. This survey describes two successful link analy sis algorithms and theExpand
Enhancing Case-Based, Collaborative Web Search
TLDR
A case-based approach to personalizing Web search by post-processing the results returned by a Web search engine to reflect the interests of a community of like-minded searchers is described and evaluated. Expand
Anonymous personalization in collaborative web search
TLDR
I-SPY achieves its level of personalization while preserving the anonymity of individual users, and it is argued that this offers unique privacy benefits compared to alternative approaches to personalization. Expand
Next Generation Web Search: Setting Our Sites
TLDR
A new way to support task-based site search is to dynamically present appropriate metadata that organizes the search results and suggests what to look at next, as a personalized intermixing of search and hypertext. Expand
Context in Web Search
TLDR
Nextgeneration search engines will make increasing use of context information, either by using explicit or implicit context information from users, or by implementing additional functionality within restricted contexts. Expand
Information Recovery and Discovery in Collaborative Web Search
TLDR
This paper will evaluate how the collaborative Web search technique, which personalizes search results for communities of like-minded users, can help in recovery- and discovery-type search tasks in a corporate search scenario. Expand
Collaborative Web Search
TLDR
A novel approach to using context in Web search is described and evaluated that adapts a generic search engine for the needs of a specialist community of users and enjoys significant performance benefits. Expand
Case-Based Collaborative Web Search
TLDR
A novel case-based technique is described that is founded on the notion of reuse and that seeks to exploit past search histories to answer future search queries and can deliver significant performance benefits when compared to alternative strategies including meta-search. Expand
Web search services
TLDR
This paper classifies current web search services into three main categories, search engines, meta-search engines and dynamicSearch engines, and survey techniques that have been proposed to tackle several underlying challenges for building such search services, and points out some possible future research directions that may improve the performance of current search services.
