SERP-level Disambiguation from Search Results

Mostafa Alli

Abstract

Fast growth of search engines' popularity shows the users attraction to the Web engines. However there is a chance of misinterpretation for ambiguous queries. At this point, we propose a more adherence user interface which consist of a relevant visual content as well as generating new search snippet and title. Recent researches for meeting this aim are focused on a whole page thumbnail for assisting users to remember a recently visited Web page. Withal, this is not discussed yet that how a specific visual content of a page can allow users to distinguish between a useful and worthless page in the result page especially in an ambiguous search task. Our study, which consists of two parts} shows that the improvement in both textual search snippet and title as well as the additional thumbnail were helpful for users to clarify the Search Engine Result Page (SERP) in an ambiguous search task.
