Those associative query trails are then used to expand the documents indexed by the search engine. Our method is shown to reduce the time spent searching the index, reduce the need to reformulate queries, and also increase the proportion of queries which fulfill the user’s information need. Our work provides a mere glimpse into a new field of study by introducing new types of linking between documents and users’ world views.
