    Search Engine Research


    I'm trying to put together a comprehensive list of all (most) the research on developing search engine technology. I'm looking for information on who is doing/did the research, which organisations and the papers produced.

    I've found quite a number through Google but unforunately anything "search engine" seems to get a lot of SEO sites first! ;-)

    So if you've got any resources you think I should include then I'd be greatful if you could post the URL here.

    Cheers, S

    try Mike Grehan's book. its a bit pricey, but he has already done most the research you are trying to do, and he even interviews some search engine research scientists.

    You mean this one: http://www.search-engine-book.co.uk/

    Sounds more like a book on search engine marketing? I'm more interested in the how to build a search engine side, why certain trade offs are made and what technology is likely to be incorporated in the future.

    Sounds like an interesting book but I hate ebooks I like to be able to read away from my pc (i.e. while sunbathing etc). If he got a printed copy done I'd almost certainly buy it.

    Regards, S

    Cool, thanks for that I've subscribed to his email list so hopefully he'll make the publication know on there.

    Cheers, S

    Hi Spartan,

    I'm not trying to be funny or stupid, but I know from experience that a lot of times, the obvious ain't so obvious. Like looking for a painter and ask the whole world if they know one, but you don't think of looking in the Golden Pages.
    Have you tried adding -SEO and -optimisation to your search?

    ROFL! No I hadn't! As you say sometimes the obvious ain't so obvious.

    Cheers! S.
