A method to create more effective Web search queries is to combine elements of a semantic approach with a template that requests specific details about the searcher’s information need. Fundamental to this process is the use of semantics. Nouns, key phrases, and verbs are scored according to their frequency of use, then ranked as keywords and used to create the query. Key phrases and words in the query accurately represent the concepts of the text, generating search results that are significantly more accurate than those available using current methods.
