[0089] 在图7中,向用户展现了示范性留言板界面700,诸如通过浏览器215展现的界面。 [0089] In FIG 7, showing an exemplary user interface 700 message boards, such as by a browser interface 215 exhibited. 如在界面700中所示,第一用户已经张贴了消息710,该消息710询问与自行车的曲柄相关的建议。 As shown in the interface 700, the first user has posted a message 710, the message 710 for advice associated with the crank of the bicycle. 第二用户用消息715响应。 The second user 715 responds with a message. 通过UDS,张贴者用多个搜索结果720来补充消息715。 By UDS, poster 720 715 to supplement the message with multiple search results. 搜索结果720包括所讨论的曲柄的图像725、在消息715中提及的自行车商店的广告730、指向生产曲柄的公司的网站的链接735、以及指向曲柄的本地经销商的链接740。 Search Results 720 images, including 725 crank in question, bike shops mentioned in the advertising message 715 730, a link to the company's Web site production of crank 735, as well as pointing to the crank link 740 local dealer. 通过UDS,响应于消息710的用户能够用其特定选择作为与所讨论的主题相关的链接来有效地补充消息715的文本。 By UDS, in response to the user message 710 is able to effectively supplement the text message 715 as a link with its particular associated with the selected topic in question.

[0090] 图8是示出了UDS在即时消息会话中的应用的示范性界面。 [0090] FIG. 8 is a diagram showing exemplary interface application UDS in an instant messaging session. 即时消息通常可以被定义为通过诸如因特网的网络在两个或多个人之间即时通信的动作。 Instant messages may be generally defined as a network such as the Internet, operated by two or more people between instant messaging.

[0091] 在图8中,向用户展现了示范性即时消息界面800,诸如由在客户端210执行的本地内容创建组件218 (例如IM客户端)展现的界面。 [0091] In FIG 8, show an exemplary user interface of the instant message 800, such as created by 218 (e.g., an IM client) component locally on the client 210 to show the content execution of interface. 即时消息界面800包括通过其来显示所传送的即时消息的消息显示部分810、在其中用户可以输入其将要传送的消息的消息区域820、以及UDS界面830。 Instant message area 820 interface 800 includes an instant message transmitted message which is displayed by the message display portion 810, in which the user can enter a message which is to be transmitted, and the interface 830 UDS. 在该示例中,在会话中的两个参与者(马克和辛迪)正在讨论可能去游览的葡萄园。 In this example, two participants in the session (Mark and Cindy) are discussing possible to visit the vineyards. 通过UDS,每一个用户已经用与所讨论的特定葡萄园相关的链接选择性地扩充了其消息。 By UDS, each user has been selectively expanded with its message associated with a particular vineyard link in question. 以这种方式,UDS界面830可以通过例如允许用户从頂界面800内搜索以及容易地与其他用户共享来自搜索的所选链接来提高即时消息会话的质量。 In this manner, UDS interface 830 from the top interface 800 may search from the search and easily shared with other users to improve the quality of the selected link by the instant messaging session, for example, allowing a user.

[0092] 图9是示出了UDS在博客创作工具中的应用的示范性界面。 [0092] FIG. 9 is a diagram showing an exemplary UDS blog interface application in the authoring tool. 博客(weblog或weblog的简称)是在其中定期张贴项并且通常按时间倒序显示项的网站。 Blog (short for weblog or weblog) is regularly posted in the library and which generally reverse chronological website items displayed.

[0093] 在图9中,向用户展现了博客创作工具的示范性界面900,诸如由内容创建组件235实现的基于web的博客创作工具或由本地内容创建组件218实现的在本地执行的博客创作工具。 [0093] In Figure 9, presented to the user of the blog authoring tool exemplary interface 900, such as creating a web-based blog authoring tool assembly 235 implemented by the content, or to create a blog creation performed in the local component 218 implemented by the local content tool. 界面900可以包括在其中博主可以输入并编辑博客帖子的博客创作部分910。 Interface 900 can include where bloggers can enter and edit blog posts blog creation section 910. UDS界面920允许博主以类似于UDS侧边栏510 (图5)的方式输入搜索查询并且接收搜索结果。 UDS interface 920 allows bloggers manner similar UDS sidebar 510 (FIG. 5) and receives the search query input mode search result. 可以将博主选择的搜索结果显示在界面900的结果部分930中。 Blogger may be selected search results are displayed in the interface section 900 930. 当博主准备发布帖子时,“发布帖子”按钮940可以使博主在部分910中输入的文本和博主在结果部分930中选择的搜索结果作为单个博客帖子发布到博主的博客中。 When ready to release bloggers post, "Publish Post" button 940 allows search results bloggers entered in the text section 910 and bloggers selected in the Results section 930 to release the blogger blog as a single blog post. [0094] UDS的示范性实现的附加细节 [0094] Additional details of an exemplary implementation UDS

[0095] 应当认识到,可以使用多个不同的编程和硬件技术来实现上述UDS。 [0095] It should be appreciated that the use of a plurality of different hardware and programming techniques to accomplish the above UDS. 现将给出一个示范性实现的上层描述。 Description will now be given upper one exemplary implementation.

[0096] 图10是示出了UDS系统中的示范性组件的图。 [0096] FIG. 10 is a diagram showing an exemplary UDS system components. 如在图10中所示,客户端210与在应用服务器230的UDS引擎1037通信,而后者可以进而与在一个或多个服务器220的搜索服务1040-A至1040-N通信。 As used herein, the client 210, which may in turn service 220 searches through 1040-A 1040-N shown in Figure 10 communication with an application server in a communication 1037 UDS engine 230 and one or more servers. 在该实现中,诸如电子邮件应用的内容应用的部分可以是在需要的基础上被传送到浏览器215的基于web的应用。 In this implementation, the content of an email application such as application portion may be needed on the basis of the browser is transmitted to the web-based application 215. 在浏览器215,电子邮件应用可以包括例如JavaScript对象1016,该JavaScript对象1016与用户界面部分1017以接口连接以基于例如从JavaScript应用1016提供的HTML (超文本标记语言)和CSS (层叠样式表)数据来提供在浏览器215中显示的最终用户界面。 In the browser 215, email application 1016 may comprise, for example, JavaScript object, the JavaScript object to the user interface portion 1016 to interface 1017 based HTML (HyperText Markup Language), for example, from the application 1016 provides JavaScript and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) data to end-user interface displayed in the browser 215.

[0097] 用户界面部分1017和JavaScript对象1016共同作用以减少传统的基于浏览器的web应用的起止特性(start-stop nature),因为JavaScript对象1016添加了可以处理与用户界面部分1017的许多用户交互的客户端层。 [0097] The user interface portion 1017 and a JavaScript object 1016 together act to reduce the traditional based on the starting and ending characteristics of the web application browser (start-stop nature), because JavaScript object 1016 adds a number of user interactions can be processed with the user interface portion 1017 the client tier. 替代在用户会话的开始时加载网页,浏览器215可以从服务器230 (或替代地从本地缓存)加载JavaScript应用1016。 Alternatively the user session at the start of loading web pages, the browser 215 may (or alternatively from the local cache) is loaded from the server application 1016 230 JavaScript. JavaScript对象1016可以负责呈现用户看到的界面以及代表用户与服务器230的内容创建组件通信。 JavaScript object 1016 may be responsible for rendering the interface the user sees and the creation of components of the communication content on behalf of the user and the server 230.

[0098] JavaScript对象1016可以是允许动态选择使用哪个网络服务诸如哪个搜索服务1040的动态配置对象。 [0098] JavaScript objects 1016 may be allowed to dynamically select which network services such as which search service dynamic configuration object 1040. JavaScript对象1016可以在客户端210实现多个不同的功能。 JavaScript object 1016 can be implemented in client 210 of the plurality of different functions. 例如,JavaScript对象1016可以允许将界面安置在客户端显示中想要的位置。 For example, JavaScript objects interface 1016 may allow the desired placement location displayed on the client. 此外,JavaScript对象1016可以实现将搜索结果限于每个搜索的少数高度相关的结果的搜索控制对象。 In addition, JavaScript objects 1016 may be implemented limit the results to search for a few highly relevant results for each search control object. 搜索控制对象可以用元件注解每个搜索结果,当点击时允许用户将搜索结果保存到内容创建界面。 Search control object can annotate search results with each element that allows users to save the search results interface to create content when clicked.

[0099] 在一些实现中,JavaScript对象1016可以是被设计为容易集成到现有的基于web的JavaScript应用中的对象,从而提供便利的应用编程接口(API),程序员通过该API可以将UDS合并入其程序中。 [0099] In some implementations, JavaScript objects 1016 may be designed to be easily integrated into existing JavaScript object of web-based application, thereby facilitating an application programming interface (API), through the API programmer can UDS incorporated into their programs.

[0100] UDS引擎1037可以提供与JavaScript对象1016的接口。 [0100] UDS engine 1037 may provide an interface with the JavaScript object 1016. 响应于JavaScript对象1016,UDS界面可以注解搜索请求、通过适当的搜索服务1040-A至1040-N执行搜索、以及序列化搜索的结果。 In response to a JavaScript object 1016, UDS interface may annotation search requests, 1040-A to 1040-N perform a search, and the search results by a suitable sequence search service. 响应于来自UDS引擎1037的请求,搜索服务1040-A至1040-N可以返回诸如基于web的通用搜索结果、图像结果等等的搜索结果、或返回相关广告。 UDS in response to a request from the engine 1037, the search service 1040-A to 1040-N may return search results, such as a general web-based search results, the results of the image and the like, or return ads.

[0101] 搜索结果的自动生成 [0101] automatic generation of search results

[0102] 在上述的UDS中,搜索结果主要被描述为基于用户输入的搜索查询而获得。 [0102] In the UDS, the search results are described mainly based on the search query entered by the user is obtained. 在替代的实现中,ros可以自动生成搜索查询并且使用自动生成的搜索查询执行潜在搜索。 In an alternative implementation, ros can automatically generate search queries and automatically generated search query execution potential search.

[0103] 返回参考图4,在动作403中,搜索查询可以由用户输入或自动生成。 [0103] Referring back to FIG. 4, in operation 403, the search query may be generated automatically or by a user input. 图11是示出了可以与动作403相关联的附加细节的图。 FIG 11 is a diagram showing additional details of the operation may FIG. 403 associated. 特别地,如在图11中所示,可以基于从用户接收的搜索查询(动作1101)或基于搜索查询的自动生成(动作1102-1104)而生成搜索查询。 In particular, as shown in FIG. 11, based on a search query received from the user (act 1101) or generated automatically based on the search query (act 1102-1104) to generate a search query.

[0104] 在动作1101中,可以从用户接收搜索查询。 [0104] In act 1101, a search query may be received from a user. 如先前所提及的,该动作可以基于用户将搜索查询键入到诸如搜索查询栏520的搜索查询栏中。 As previously mentioned, the action can be based on user search query entered into the search query box such as a search query field 520. 替代地,在一些实现中,替代用户键入搜索查询,用户可以以其它的方式选择搜索词语,诸如通过在词语上“悬停”或用图形指示装置选择。 Alternatively, in some implementations, instead of user types a search query, the user may select a search term in other ways, such as by "hovering" in the word or selecting a graphical pointing device. [0105] 替代等待用户提供搜索查询,UDS可以基于例如使用用户输入的内容或与内容创建应用218/235相关联的内容来执行的实体识别技术(动作1102)来自动生成搜索查询。 [0105] Alternatively waits for the user to provide a search query, entity identification (operation 1102) UDS can be used, for example, based on user input or application 218/235 create content associated with the content is performed to automatically generate the search query. 实体识别技术一般被本领域所知并且可以包括例如被设计为识别实体的技术,所述实体诸如产品、位置、组织或易于成为搜索的主题的任何其它实体。 Entity recognition technique generally known in the art and may include, for example, be designed to recognize technical entity, the product entity such as any other entity, location, organization, or tends to become the topic of search. 实体识别技术可以基于语言的语法模式或统计模型。 Entity recognition grammar model or statistical language models can be based. 在一个可能的实现中,可以特定采用实体识别技术来定位与商品相对应的词语或定义诸如邮政地址的地址的词语。 In one possible implementation, the particular technique employed to locate and identify an entity corresponding to goods such as a word or address word defines the postal address.

[0106] 如果在动作1102中识别的实体被确定为与要执行的搜索足够相关,则可以将实体作为搜索查询提交到适当的网络服务组件225 (动作1103和1104)。 [0106] In operation 1102 if the identified entity is determined to be relevant enough to perform the search, the entity may be submitted as a search query to the appropriate network services component 225 (act 1103 and 1104). 在一些实现中,如果接收了多个实体,可以将所述实体组合并且作为单个搜索查询提交、作为多个单独的搜索查询提交或在将剩余的实体组合为搜索查询之前过滤所述实体以移除较不相关的实体。 In some implementations, if a plurality of receiving entities, the entities may be combined and submitted as a single search query, a search query submitted by a plurality of individual filter or a search query prior to the remaining combination of entities in the entity shift in addition to the entity less relevant. 在一些实现中,UDS系统可以基于实体的类型将所确定的实体仅提交到网络服务组件225中的某些组件。 In some implementations, UDS system may be based on the type of entity the determined entity or entities to only certain components of the web service component 225. 例如,可以将地址提交到制图或本地搜索网络服务组件,而可以将商品提交到购物网络服务组件和广告网络服务组件。 For example, you can submit drawings or address to a local search service components, and can submit items to the shopping network service components and service components ad networks. 返回参考图4,然后可以在UDS界面上显示所返回的搜索结果,并且如先前所描述的,用户潜在地选择所述搜索结果并且将其合并入用户正在创建的内容中(动作405-407)。 Referring back to FIG. 4, may then display the search results returned by the interface at the UDS, and as previously described, potentially user selects the search result and the contents of which are incorporated the user is created (act 405-407) .

[0107] 在一些实现中,实体识别技术可以附加地考虑与特定内容创建组件218/235相关的环境或用户正使用的内容创建组件218/235的状态。 [0107] In some implementations, entity recognition technology may additionally be considered to create a particular assembly 218/235 contents related to the environment or the user is using to create a state of assembly 218/235. 例如,应用于留言板内容创建组件的实体识别技术可以偏爱在内容中寻找与留言板的主题相关的词语。 For example, a message board used in content creation component entity recognition technology may prefer to find words related to the theme of the message board in the content. 作为另一个示例,应用于博客创作工具的实体识别技术可以偏爱在内容中寻找与博客的一般主题相关的词语(例如,如果博客是计算机软件博客,则实体识别技术可以偏爱定位与计算机软件相关的词语)。 As another example, an entity applies to blog authoring tool recognition technology may prefer to find words related to the general theme of your blog in the content (for example, if the blog is a blog computer software, the preference entity recognition technology can locate related to computer software words).

[0108] 可以在用户键入或编辑内容时实时地(或接近实时地)执行动作1102-1104。 [0108] in real time (or near real-time) when the user performs an action type or edit the contents of 1102-1104. 以这种方式,可以动态地更新并且向用户显示潜在相关的搜索结果而不用打断用户的工作流。 In this way, it can be dynamically updated and displayed potentially relevant search results to users without interrupting the user's workflow. 在其它的实现中,响应于触发事件,可以执行动作1102-1104。 In other implementations, in response to a trigger event, you can perform an action 1102-1104. 这样的触发事件的可能示例包括:用户打开撰写界面,诸如当用户选择了在电子邮件界面中的“回复”按钮、或用户启动了拼写检查操作(或其它的操作)时;在设置的时间段内用户不活动性,诸如当流逝一段时间时,在这段时间内内容创建应用218/235没有从用户接收输入。 Possible examples of such triggering events include: a user opens compose, such as when the user selects "Reply" button in the e-mail interface, or when the user starts the spell check operation (or other operations); set period of time within the user inactivity, such as when the elapsed period of time, during which time content creation applications 218/235 does not receive input from the user.

[0109] 图12是示出了在其中自动获得搜索结果的用户分布式搜索的应用的示例界面1200。 [0109] FIG. 12 is a diagram showing an example in which the user interface of the search results automatically distributed search application 1200. 界面1200是类似于电子邮件界面500 (图5)的电子邮件界面。 Interface 1200 is similar to the e-mail interface 500 (FIG. 5) of the email interface. 具体地,界面1200可以包括“至:”栏502、“主题:”栏504以及在其中用户可以以典型的方式撰写电子邮件消息的消息栏506。 In particular, the interface 1200 may include a "To:" field 502, "Subject:" field 504 and a message in which a user may compose an email message field 506 in a typical manner. 此外,界面1200可以包括如前所述的选定的搜索结果560至563。 In addition, the interface 1200 may include search results selected as described above 560-563.

[0110] 然而,与在图5中所示的示例相比,其中UDS侧边栏510提供用户可选的搜索结果,UDS侧边栏1210可以包括多个侧边栏,所述多个侧边栏在界面1200中被示为自动生成的结果部分(侧边栏)1211和用户生成的结果部分(侧边栏)1212。 [0110] However, compared with the example shown in FIG. 5, wherein the UDS sidebar 510 provides user-selectable search results, UDS sidebar sidebar 1210 may include a plurality of said plurality of sides bar 1200 is shown in the interface automatically generated as part of the result (sidebar) 1211 and a user-generated results section (sidebar) 1212. 用户生成的结果部分1212可以起到类似于UDS侧边栏510的作用。 User-generated results section 1212 may function similarly UDS sidebar 510. 即,用户可以将搜索查询输入到搜索框1220中并且查看在一个或多个搜索结果部分1222和1224中的搜索的结果。 That is, the user may enter a search query into a search box 1220 and view results of the search in a search result or a plurality of portions 1222 and 1224.

[0111]自动生成的结果部分1211可以包括由UDS自动生成的搜索结果(动作1102-1104)。 [0111] automatically generated results section 1211 may include search results (act 1102-1104) generated automatically by the UDS. 可以在用户(例如通过键入内容)创建内容时由UDS系统实时地或接近实时地生成结果。 In the user (e.g., by typing) a UDS system generating results in real time or near real-time when creating the content. 自动生成的结果部分1211可以包括在其中示出了由UDS自动生成的搜索查询(动作1102)的搜索查询部分1240和搜索结果部分1245。 Automatically generated results may include a portion 1211 which is shown by the UDS automatically generated search query (act 1102) and the search portion 1240 search query results section 1245. 搜索结果部分1245可以包括在搜索查询部分1240中示出的自动生成的查询的搜索结果。 Search results may include a portion 1245 of the search result shown in the automatically generated search query in the query portion 1240. 在该示例中,搜索结果部分1245包括图像结果部分1246和通用web搜索结果部分1247。 In this example, the search results section 1245 includes an image portion 1246 and the results of general web search results section 1247. 图形箭头按钮可以允许用户隐藏或查看搜索结果部分的每一个。 Graphics arrow buttons allow users to hide or look at each part of the search results. 如所示,在图像结果部分1246中的结果(“图像结果”)被隐藏而通用web搜索结果部分1247被选择为显示搜索结果。 As shown, the result ( "result image") results in the image portion 1246 is hidden from general web search results section 1247 is selected as the search results.

[0112] 在界面1200中是否显示自动生成的搜索结果部分1211和/或用户生成的搜索结果部分1212可以是用户可配置的。 [0112] 1200 is displayed in the UI automatically generated search results portion 1211 and / or user-generated search results section 1212 may be user configurable. 在界面1200的示例中,搜索结果部分1211和1212分别包括“关闭”按钮1250和1251,所述“关闭”按钮可以操作来将各个结果部分1211或1212从UDS界面移除。 In the example interface 1200, the search results section 1211 and 1212, respectively, including the "Close" button 1250 and 1251, the "close" button to operate the respective results section 1211 or 1212 is removed from the UDS interface. 用这些按钮,用户可以禁用搜索查询的自动生成。 With these buttons, users can disable the automatic generation of search queries.

[0113] 除可由用户关闭外,搜索结果部分1211和1212可以包括选项以允许搜索结果部分脱离界面1200。 [0113] In addition to closed by a user, the search results section 1211 and 1212 may include an option to allow a search results section 1200 from the interface. 换句话说,用户能够使搜索结果部分1211和1212变成在图形界面内的单独窗口。 In other words, the user can make the search results section 1211 and 1212 becomes a separate window in a graphical interface.

[0114] 在替带的实现中,替代向用户展现包括如在界面1200中示出的多个侧边栏的界面,UDS可以向用户展现单个侧边栏,通过该侧边栏既向用户示出了手动输入的搜索查询又向用户示出了自动生成的搜索查询。 [0114] In alternative realization tape, instead of presentation to the user interface 1200 comprises a plurality as shown in the sidebar interface, the UDS can show the user a single sidebar, both shown to the user through the sidebar manually enter a search query ED shows the user automatically generated search query. 例如,只要用户没有手动输入搜索查询,UDS系统就可以自动生成搜索查询并且向用户显示结果。 For example, unless the user manually enters a search query, the UDS system can automatically generate a search query and displays the results to the user. 当用户手动输入了搜索查询时,系统可以制止自动生成另外的搜索查询。 When the user to manually enter a search query, the system may stop automatically generate another search query. 并且,用户能够禁止搜索生成的自动部分。 Further, the user can disable the automatic generation of partial search.

[0115] 此外,在一些替代的实现中,UDS可以如上所述自动生成搜索查询但是可以不将搜索查询自动提交到网络服务组件325。 [0115] In addition, in the realization of some alternative, UDS described above can automatically generate search queries but can not automatically submit a search query to the network service component 325. 替代地,UDS可以例如在搜索查询部分1240中显示搜索查询。 Alternatively, UDS can for example search query in the search query display portion 1240. 用户如果对自动生成的搜索查询感兴趣可以将其提交给网络服务组件225中的一个或多个。 If users are interested can submit search queries automatically generated it to one or more network services component 225.

[0116] UDS搜索结果的精化 [0116] refined search results UDS

[0117] 利用上述的UDS系统,基于用户输入的或基于实体识别技术自动生成的搜索查询来向用户展现搜索结果。 [0117] With the above UDS system, or entity recognition based on automatically generated search query to show search results to users based on user input. 在替代的实现中,搜索结果或搜索查询可以在向用户示出之前由ros系统进一步精化。 In alternate implementations, the search result or a search query may be further refined by the system before ros shown to the user.

[0118] 返回参考图4,在动作403中,可以由用户输入或自动生成搜索查询。 [0118] Referring back to FIG. 4, in operation 403, a search query may be generated automatically or by a user input. 作为响应,内容创建组件235可以将搜索查询传送到适当的网络服务组件235的每一个,并且然后可以向用户示出从网络服务组件的每一个返回的搜索结果(动作404)。 In response, the content creation component 235 may transmit the search query to the appropriate network for each service component 235, and may then shows the search result returned from each network service module (act 404) to a user.

[0119] 图13是示出了可以与动作404相关联的附加示范性操作的流程图。 [0119] FIG. 13 is a flowchart illustrating operation 404 may be associated with an additional exemplary operation. UDS系统可以精化在动作403中获得的搜索查询(动作1302)。 UDS system can search refinement obtained in act 403 queries (Act 1302). 通常,UDS可以通过以利用增加搜索结果的相关性为目标修改搜索查询来精化搜索查询。 Typically, UDS can take advantage of increasing the relevance of search results as the goal modify the search query to refine the search query. 精化搜索查询并不一定意味着使搜索查询变窄以返回更少的搜索结果;在一些情况中,精化的搜索查询可以比原始搜索查询返回更多的搜索结果,在一个实现中,可以精化搜索查询以包括与特定类型的内容创建应用218/235相关的附加信息。 Refined search query does not necessarily mean narrowing the search query to return fewer search results; in some cases, refinement of search queries than the original search query can return more search results, in one implementation, 218/235 refined search queries to include additional information related to specific types of content creation applications. 例如,如果内容创建应用218/235是被设计为便于将帖子张贴到留言板的应用,则内容创建应用218/235可以自动将与留言板的主题相关的词语添加到搜索查询。 For example, if the content creation application 218/235 is designed for ease of use will be posted to the message board posts, the content creation application 218/235 can automatically Words related message board topics added to the search query. 例如,当用户正将帖子添加到留言板“rec.bicycles, tech”时,UDS系统可以诸如通过添加词语“bicycle”或“gear”等等来修改用户输入的UDS搜索查询(或自动生成的UDS搜索查询)以包括与留言板相关的词语。 For example, when a user is added when the message board posts "rec.bicycles, tech" to, UDS UDS system may be modified such as the search query entered by the user by adding the words "bicycle" or "gear" and the like (or automatically generated UDS search query) to include words related message boards. 在一些实现中,UDS系统是否添加词语来精化搜索查询可以基于所接收的搜索查询的特殊性。 In some implementations, UDS system whether to add words to refine a search query can be based on the special nature of the received search query. 例如,如果所接收的搜索查询包含许多词语或如果其包含相对罕见的词语,UDS可以制止将搜索查询附加地变窄,而被UDS确定为特别宽泛的搜索查询可以被精化。 For example, if the received search query comprises words or if it contains a number of relatively rare word, UDS can stop the search query additionally narrowed, UDS is determined to be particularly broad search query may be refined.

[0120] 除精化搜索查询以包括与特定类型的内容创建应用218/235相关的附加信息外,可以基于内容创建应用218/235的特定用户或基于用内容创建应用218/235创建的消息所发往的用户来精化搜索查询(动作1302)。 [0120] In addition to the search query refinement to include additional information related to the application 218/235 create a particular type of content, the user may create specific content based on the application 218/235 or 218/235 applications based on the content created by the message sent to the user to refine the search query (Act 1302).

[0121] 作为基于内容创建应用218/235的用户或基于消息所发往的用户来精化搜索查询的示例,考虑在图14中所示出的示范性电子邮件消息。 [0121] As an example based on the content creation application 218/235 or user messages sent to the user based on the search query refinement, consider an exemplary email message 14 shown in FIG. 在电子邮件消息1400中,电子邮件消息的发送者正通知电子邮件的接收者他们将碰面的本地餐馆(“Cafe Del Sol”)。 In 1400 e-mail message, e-mail message sender is notifying the recipient of the e-mail they will meet local restaurant ( "Cafe Del Sol"). 为了支持该消息,发送者添加了来自本地搜索引擎的搜索结果1460,所述搜索结果1460从本地结果1445中选择。 To support this message, the sender adds a local search results from the search engine 1460, the selected search result from a local 1460 1445 results. 在符合本发明的方面的实现中,搜索结果可以基于搜索查询,所述搜索查询被自动精化以包括到电子邮件消息的发送者或电子邮件消息的接收者的位置的引用。 In implementation consistent with aspects of the invention, the search results may be based on a search query, the search query is automatically refined to include the position of the recipient's e-mail message to a sender of e-mail messages or references. 例如,本地搜索结果1461可以链接到本地搜索引擎结果网页,该网页包括显示与电子邮件消息的接收者的位置相对的餐馆的位置的地图。 For example, local search results 1461 can be linked to a local search engine results page that includes the location of the recipient of the email message is displayed relative map location of the restaurant. 如果电子邮件消息的接收者正使用与发送者相同的电子邮件平台,电子邮件接收者的位置可以从接收者在注册电子邮件账户时输入的信息获知。 If the recipient is using e-mail messages with the same sender e-mail platform, the position of the recipient's e-mail recipients can obtain information entered when registering email accounts from. 作为另一个示例,本地搜索结果1445可以包括基于多个本地搜索的搜索结果,所述多个本地搜索诸如基于发送者的位置精化的本地搜索和基于接收者的位置精化的本地搜索。 As another example, local search results 1445 may comprise a plurality of search results based on local search, local search, such as a plurality of local search based on the position of the sender's local search refinement and refinement based on the position of the receiver.

[0122] 作为基于内容创建应用218/235的用户来精化搜索查询的另一个示例,UDS系统可以生成用户的明确的或隐含的简档,并且在精化搜索结果时使用该简档。 [0122] As another example based content creation applications 218/235 users to refine a search query, UDS system can generate the user's explicit or implicit profile, and use the profile in the refined search results. 简档可以基于例如用户过去的搜索或用户输入的明确的简档或偏好信息。 Profiles can be based on a clear profile such as the user's past searches or user input or preference information.

[0123] 作为精化搜索查询的又一个示例,UDS系统可以通过修改搜索查询内的个别词语来精化搜索查询,诸如通过添加已在搜索查询中的词语的同义词、通过提取已在搜索查询中的词语的词干、或通过替换在搜索查询中的词语或向在搜索查询中的词语建议拼写修正。 [0123] Yet another example of a refinement to the search query, the UDS system may modify individual words in the search query refinement search query, such as by adding words in the search query synonym by extraction has been in the search query stem of the words, or by replacing the words in the search query or suggestion to the words in a search query spelling correction.

[0124] 可以将在动作1302中精化的搜索查询提交到适当的网络服务组件(动作1303)。 [0124] can be refined search queries submitted in operation 1302 to the appropriate network service component (operation 1303). 然后可以向用户展现从网络搜索组件接收回的搜索结果(动作1304和1305)。 You can then show received back from the network search component search results (action 1304 and 1305) to the user. 如先前所述,用户可以选择诸如搜索结果1445的这些搜索结果中的某些并且将其包括在文档中。 As previously described, the user can select some of the search results, such as search results in 1445 and included in the document.

[0125] 图15是示出了符合替代的实施例的可以与动作404相关联的附加示范性操作的流程图。 [0125] FIG. 15 is a flow chart illustrating operation of the additional exemplary embodiments consistent with alternative embodiments may be associated with the action 404. 内容创建组件218/235可以将在动作403中获得的搜索查询提交给适当的网络服务组件225 (动作1502)。 Content creation component 218/235 can be obtained in a search operation 403 submits a query to the appropriate network service components 225 (action 1502). 内容创建组件218/235可以接收搜索结果(动作1503)。 Content creation component 218/235 can receive the search results (action 1503). 内容创建组件218/235可以通过例如对搜索结果进行排名或过滤搜索结果来精化所接收的搜索结果(动作1504)。 Content creation component 218/235 can search results received by, for example search result ranking or filtering search results to refine (act 1504). 可以以增加向用户展现的搜索结果的相关性为目标来执行该精化。 You can increase the search results presented to the user as a target of relevance to the implementation of the refinement. 通常,精化搜索结果将涉及修改或重新评价搜索结果的相关性次序。 Typically, the refined search results to related modified or re-evaluation of the order of search results. 典型地,在相关性次序中更高的搜索结果是首先向用户展现或最显著地向用户展现的结果。 Typically, the higher in the search results in order of relevance is the first to show the results to the user or to show the most significant to the user.

[0126] 在一个实现中,可以使用与特定类型的内容创建应用218/235相关的附加信息来精化搜索结果。 [0126] In one implementation, the application 218/235 may be used to create additional information related to specific types of content to refine the search results. 例如,如果内容创建组件218/235是被设计为便于将帖子张贴到留言板的应用,并且正被张贴的特定留言板是留言板“rec.bicycles, tech”,内容创建应用235可以通过对结果进行排名以强调与自行车更相关的结果或移除(过滤)与自行车无关的结果来精化搜索结果。 For example, if the content creation component 218/235 is designed for ease of use will be posted to the message board posts, and is being posted on the message board is a particular message board "rec.bicycles, tech", content creation application 235 may pass the results rank to emphasize or remove the more relevant results of the bicycle (filter) results of independent bicycle to refine the search results. [0127] 在另一个可能的实现中,可以基于与内容创建应用218/235的用户相关的信息或基于与内容的预期接收者相关的信息来精化搜索结果。 [0127] In another possible implementation can be created based on information related to the intended recipient or based on the content of the information to refine the search results related to the user's application and content of 218/235. 作为这个的示例,考虑用户创建的简档或为用户创建的简档包括用户的兴趣的范围。 As an example of this, consider the profile created by the user or profile include the user's interest is created by the user. 简档可以被用作对搜索结果重新排名的基础。 Profiles can be used as a basis for re-ranking search results. 在其它可能的实现中,可以将其它信息用来精化搜索结果,所述其它信息诸如对于留言板帖子,与留言板帖子相关的地理信息。 In other possible implementations, other information may be used to refine the search results, the further information, such as a message board for the posts, the posts associated with the message board geographic information.

[0128] 然后可以向用户展现精化的搜索结果(动作1505)。 [0128] Search results may then be refined presentation (act 1505) to the user.

[0129] 附加的概念 [0129] Additional concepts

[0130] 用户在创建内容时对搜索结果的选择可以提供所选择的搜索结果与搜索查询相关的指示。 [0130] When creating content for users to select search results can provide the selected search results with the search query instructions. 例如,用户选择的搜索结果可以被用作声誉网络的部分。 For example, the user selects the search results may be used as part of the reputation of the network. 通常,声誉网络以某种方式量化关于用户在某些类别或主题中的专业经验的声誉或分值。 Typically, the reputation of the network in some way or quantify reputation scores on user expertise in certain categories or topics of. 在UDS的环境中,如果特定用户将大量搜索结果合并入内容并且所述搜索结果频繁地被内容的读者选择,这可以是用户是与内容相关的主题方面的“专家”的指示,并且可以增加其该主题的声誉分值。 In UDS environment, if a particular user will be incorporated into the content of a large number of search results and the search results are frequently selected reader content, which may be a user indicates "experts" of topics related to the content of, and may increase the theme of its reputation score. 该应用可以与诸如留言板的内容应用特别相关,其中典型地通过主题对留言板分类。 The application may be particularly relevant to the content of the application, such as message boards, which are typically classified by topic on the Message Board.

[0131] 更一般地,关于声誉,可以将选择结果的示意动作(gesture)反馈到系统中以影响例如原始结果排名、广告的原始价值、执行选择的用户的原始声誉、或使用UDS的应用的原始声誉。 [0131] More generally, regarding reputation, can select a schematic operation result (Gesture) fed back into the system to affect the original value, for example, the original results of the ranking, advertising, performing the selected original reputation of users or applications using the UDS of original reputation. 可以将这些原始声誉结果用来例如修改隐含的搜索引擎使用的文档或广告排名。 The reputation of the original results can be used for example to modify the document or ad position implicit search engine.

[0132] 特别地,通过UDS展现的广告可以表示具有更高点进可能性的广告并且可以因此对广告主更有价值。 [0132] In particular, by showing advertisements may represent UDS have a higher likelihood of ad click through and may thus more valuable to the advertisers. 这些广告可以例如比其它广告花费更多或以和其它广告不同的条件提供。 These ads can for example spend more than other advertising and other advertising or provided to different conditions. 在一些实现中,得自内容创建者所选择的广告的收入或其它利益可以以某种方法与内容创建者分享。 In some implementations, the income derived from interest or other content creators selected advertisements can be created to share in some way with the content. 在一些情况中,终端用户选择广告的事实可以以某种方式被用来修改选择广告的内容创建者的声誉。 In some cases, the end-user to select advertising the fact that in some way can be used to modify the contents of the selected ad creation's reputation.

[0133] 此外,在一些实现中,诸如通过添加指向被确定为与所选择的搜索结果相关的广告或产品的附加链接,可以附加地自动修改或补充带有用户选择的搜索结果的内容。 [0133] In addition, in some implementations, such as by adding additional points to be determined to be related to the search results link to the selected advertisement or product, or it may be additionally automatically modified supplemental content with search results selected by the user. 作为这个的示例,考虑通过电子邮件消息的创作者包括在电子邮件消息中的商家的广告。 As the creator of example, consider the e-mail message includes the business of e-mail messages in advertising. 可能需要的是,将来自商家的附加广告包括在电子邮件中,所述附加广告诸如来自商家的与提供免费送货相关的广告。 May require that additional advertising from the businesses included in the email, the additional advertising-related businesses such as advertising and providing free shipping from. 这些附加的或后继的广告可以显示在消息本身内或作为经由不同的通道向用户展现的广告来显示。 These additional or subsequent ads may be displayed as the message itself, or presentation to a user via a different channel ad displayed. 例如,如果电子邮件消息的接收者正在使用基于web的电子邮件应用查看电子邮件消息,可以在消息本身的外面显示后继的广告,诸如在基于web的电子邮件应用通常使用的来向其用户展现广告的浏览器的部分中。 For example, if the recipient of the email message is using the app to view e-mail messages web-based e-mail, you can display ads outside of the subsequent message itself, such as to show ads to their users in a web-based e-mail applications typically use to section of the browser.

[0134] 此外,在一些实现中,替代使搜索通过网络服务组件(例如网络搜索引擎)来执行,诸如搜索查询栏520 (图5)的UDS搜索查询栏可以执行其它类型的本地或网络搜索。 [0134] In addition, in some implementations, instead of making the search is performed by the network service components (e.g., a web search engine), a search query field 520 (FIG. 5) of UDS search query field such as to perform other types of local or network search. 例如,可以替代地或附加地将搜索查询提交到本地(例如桌面)搜索服务或提交到集成在内容创建应用中的搜索服务。 For example, it can alternatively or additionally be submitted to the local search query (for example, Desktop) or submit to a search service integrated search services to create applications in content. 例如,网络电子邮件内容创建应用可以包括允许用户搜索先前发送或接收的电子邮件的搜索服务。 For example, web content creation applications may include e-mail allows users to search previously sent or received e-mail search service. 在这种情况中,UDS搜索查询栏可以附加地使用内容创建应用的搜索服务。 In this case, UDS search query field can additionally be used to create a content search service applications.
