Creating temporally dynamic web search snippets

Creating temporally dynamic web search snippets
Content on the Internet is always changing. We explore the value of biasing search result snippets towards new webpage content. We present results from a user study comparing traditional queryfocused snippets with snippets that emphasize new page content for two query types: general and trending. Our results indicate that searchers prefer the inclusion of temporal information for trending queries but not for general queries, and that this is particularly valuable for pages that have not been recently crawled. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.3.3 [Information Storage and Retrieval]: Information search and retrieval – query formulation, search process. Keywords Web search, query dynamics, search result snippets.
