Multimedia Web Searching on a Meta-Search Engine

Tjondronegoro, Dian W., Spink, Amanda H., & Jansen, Bernard (2007) Multimedia Web Searching on a Meta-Search Engine. In Spink, Amanda H., Turpin, Andrew, & Wu, Minfang (Eds.) Twelfth Australasian Document Computing Symposium, 10 December 2007, Melbourne Zoo, Australia.


This paper provides preliminary results from a major study of multimedia Web searching by Dogpile meta-search engine users, including queries and session characteristics, and changes or differences in image, video and audio searching. The results are compared with multimedia Web searching studies from 1997 to 2002. Image and sexual queries are dominant in multimedia Web searching. The paper provides important implications for the design of multimedia information retrieval systems.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
