Online Expansion Of Rare Queries For Sponsored Search

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Sponsored search systems are tasked with matching queries to relevant advertisements. The current state-of-the-art matching algorithms expand the user's query using a variety of external resources, such as Web search results. While these expansion-based algorithms are highly effective, they are largely inefficient and cannot be applied in real-time. In practice, such algorithms are applied offline to popular queries, with the results of the expensive operations cached for fast access at query time. In this paper, the authors describe an efficient and effective approach for matching ads against rare queries that were not processed offline.
