Web search engines have major impact in people's everyday life. It is of great importance to test the retrieval effectiveness of search engines. However, it is labor-intensive to judge the relevance of search results for a large number of queries, and these relevance judgments may not be reusable since the Web data change all the time. In this paper, the authors propose to mine test oracles of Web search engines from existing search results. The main idea is to mine implicit relationships between queries and search results, e.g., some queries may have fixed top 1 result while some may not, and some Web domains may appear together in top 10 results.
