The entire contents of these applications are hereby incorporated by reference.

  This disclosure relates to the field of mobile communications, and more specifically, mobile content, such as sponsored content, is also referred to as context data (or context data, or context data) associated with a portion of another mobile content. The same) and / or related to behavioral data and to an improved method and system for providing that mobile content to a mobile communication facility.

  Online search driven by a web-based search engine has been found to be one of the most important uses of computer networks such as the Internet. Computer users can utilize various search tools for searching content using various user interfaces and search methods. In some environments, mobile device users can also search for content by accessing Internet search tools.

  However, users of many mobile devices, such as mobile phones, face the difficulty of using search technologies that are targeted for traditional online use. These difficulties include not being able to display the appropriate content, taking queries and taking other appropriate actions when navigating in an environment that is compatible with full screen display, standard size keyboards, and high speed network connections. Difficult things are included. Furthermore, Internet search engines currently cannot optimally deliver search results to mobile communication facilities. This is because these search engines are specifically designed for the Internet, not for mobile. There is a need for improved search capabilities adapted for use in mobile communication devices

  The present invention, in one embodiment, provides a user and user of a mobile communication facility with a method and system for accessing an item of content such as a web page that cannot be fully displayed by the capabilities of the mobile communication facility. Can do. This may cause a user of the mobile communication facility to first browse the content portion 1 and then browse the content portion 2. The content part 1 can be associated with the context data 1. The content part 2 can be associated with the context data 2. Context data 1 and context data 2 can be stored in the context database. A relevance facility may be used to select sponsored content 1 associated with context data 1 and sponsored content 2 associated with context data 2 from a sponsored content database. Using the association between the context data and sponsored content, the content portion 1 can be further associated with the sponsored content 1 and the content portion 2 can be associated with the sponsored content 2. While the content portion 1 is being displayed, the content portion 1 and the sponsor-provided content 1 associated therewith can be displayed simultaneously on the mobile communication facility or in close proximity to each other in stages. Can be displayed continuously, displayed continuously, or displayed by other display methods that associate the content 1 with the sponsor-provided content 1. While the content portion 2 is being displayed, the content portion 2 and the sponsor-provided content 2 associated therewith can be displayed simultaneously on the mobile communication facility or in close proximity to each other in stages. Can be displayed continuously, displayed continuously, or by other display methods that associate content 2 with sponsor-provided content 2. In one embodiment, upon navigation to a piece of content, an indication of stage (or aspect) change may be sent to a server associated with the mobile communication facility. This stage change can indicate redirection to that part. When this redirection is registered, the context data associated with the part can be collected. This process is asynchronous in that context data can be sent from the server in the background, thereby minimizing the interface with the function of the content portion being viewed.

  In one embodiment, the asynchronous process used to send the context data may be an asynchronous Javascript and XML (AJAX) or similar process. AJAX refers to a cross-platform technology that can be used by web browsers based on different operating systems, computer architectures, and open standards such as Javascript and DOM. The AJAX system is asynchronous in that it can request additional data from the server and load it in the background without disturbing the display and behavior of existing pages. Javascript is a scripting language that can be used to make AJAX function calls. Data can be retrieved using an “XMLHttpRequest” object that can be used in a scripting language executed in the browser, or remote scripting in the browser that does not support “XMLHttpRequest”. In some embodiments, asynchronous content can be formatted into a format other than XML. AJAX and related technologies can exchange a small amount of data with the server as a background function, so that it is not necessary to reload the entire web page each time data needs to be retrieved from the server. This improves the interactivity (bidirectionality), speed, functionality, and convenience of the web page.

  In one embodiment, a piece of content can be displayed on a display of a mobile communication facility. The mobile communication facility can receive the entire content and display only some parts of the entire content in response to a predetermined action of the user. For example, a user can instruct local software (eg, a browser) at a mobile communication facility to connect to a particular web page, in which case the software can either access the entire web page or the web You can retrieve important parts of the page. The mobile communication facility can then display a portion of the web page on the display. For example, the top of the web page can be displayed on the display, and the mobile communication facility software can wait for an instruction from the user that the user wants to see another piece of content. This indication can be given as a zoom, pan, shift (move) or other request from the user. The mobile communication facility software can monitor which part is currently displayed, how long that part is displayed, or other parameters related to that part being displayed. . The mobile communication facility software can then send this information to the server in real time so that other content related to the currently displayed content portion can be sent to the mobile communication facility. . The server-side software may include the content portion, context information associated with the content portion, behavior information based on how the user of the mobile communication facility interacts with the content portion, or other Appropriate content (eg, sponsored content, related content, etc.) can be selected based on such information. When the server side software makes this selection, the content can be transmitted to the mobile communication facility. A mobile communication facility can be configured to accept such information, but can optionally be configured not to accept such information. When the mobile communication facility receives new content related to the currently displayed content portion, the mobile communication facility will later transfer the content (eg, when the mobile communication facility is taken into place) Alternatively, it can be stored for provision based on a certain time or based on some other trigger event or implicit search (potentially performed search) later. In other embodiments, the mobile communication facility may present (display) the content when it receives the newly selected content. This new content can be presented in conjunction with the currently displayed content portion. For example, the new content can be displayed in the same display portion (eg, in the same window) or can be displayed separately (eg, in separate windows). AJAX is one technique used to obtain information from the mobile communication facility about which part is currently displayed. Those skilled in the art will understand that no software or protocol is required to know what content portion is currently displayed or to convey relevant information to a server-based application. . Many embodiments herein describe sending information to the server in real time about what content portion is being displayed, but collecting such information and sending it together at a later point in time. It should be understood that

  In other embodiments, only a portion of the complete content can be communicated to the mobile communication facility, and other content portions can be communicated to the mobile communication facility when requested. Thus, in contrast to the above example where a large portion of content is sent to the mobile communication facility and then a portion of the content is selected for display on the display of the mobile communication facility, in this embodiment the content Only a part of is sent to the mobile communication facility. In this case, other parts of the content can be sent later. As requested by the user (eg, via a pan request or zoom request) or what the user wants to view (eg, downloading other content portions via the AJAX protocol) Through this prediction, this other content part can be sent later. In this embodiment, the server program responsible for monitoring what part is displayed on the display of the mobile communication facility is that the predetermined part is sent to the mobile communication facility. It can be inferred that the part is displayed on the mobile communication facility or has been displayed. The server can track the delivery of the content portion based on the type of request. For example, a user's explicit request can be tracked separately from a speculative type request intended to predict what content the user wants to view. The selection of relevant content can be based on any type or all types of such content portion requests.

  In some embodiments, the content is text, image (image), audio (sound), audiovisual (sound and video), web page, part of web page, part of screen (screen), sponsored content, Ads, parts of ads, interactive features, subscription content (or subscription content or subscription content, the same applies below), tagged content, dynamic content, or The content can be other forms.

  In some embodiments, the context data can be a link structure, link, outbound link, inbound link, keyword, metadata, or other form of context data.

  The present invention, in some embodiments, allows a user of a mobile communication facility to access items (such as elements) of the content such as web pages that cannot display the entire content due to exceeding the capabilities of the mobile communication facility. Methods and systems for doing so can be provided. These methods and systems may allow a user of a mobile communication facility to navigate to browse content portion 1 first and then browse content portion 2. The content part 1 can be associated with the behavior data (or behavior data, the same applies hereinafter) 1. The content part 2 can be associated with the behavior data 2. Behavior data 1 and behavior data 2 can be stored in the behavior database. Using the relevance facility, the sponsor-provided content 1 associated with the behavior data 1 and the sponsor-provided content 2 associated with the behavior data 2 can be selected from the sponsor-provided content database. Using the association between behavior data and sponsored content, the content portion 1 can be further associated with the sponsored content 1 and the content portion 2 can be associated with the sponsored content 2. While the content portion 1 is being displayed, the content portion 1 and the sponsor-provided content 1 associated therewith can be displayed simultaneously on the mobile communication facility or in close proximity to each other in stages. Can be displayed continuously, displayed continuously, or displayed by other display methods that associate the content 1 with the sponsor-provided content 1. While the content portion 2 is being displayed, the content portion 2 and the sponsor-provided content 2 associated therewith can be displayed simultaneously on the mobile communication facility or in close proximity to each other in stages. Can be displayed continuously, displayed continuously, or by other display methods that associate content 2 with sponsor-provided content 2.

  In some embodiments, the behavior data can be panned, zoomed, navigated, scrolled, positioned (positioned), page view (such as page displayed or viewed), text view (such as displayed or viewed), image view (Such as viewing and viewing images), streaming audio content, streaming video content, downloads, uploads, transactions, advertisement conversion, receiving text messages, sending text messages, receiving emails, sending emails, It can be a search query input, directory information invocation, or other type of behavior data. In order to associate the behavior data with the content sent to the mobile communication facility in response to receiving the behavior data, the behavior data can be communicated to a server associated with the mobile communication facility. Using content (e.g., page views) sent to the mobile communication facility, the server can estimate what portion of the content is currently being viewed by the user.

The mobile search host facility 114 can also be linked (or connected) to another data facility 170 (“equipment” can also be referred to as “device” or “function”).

  The disambiguation function 140 can complete ambiguous active user input or provide more meaning to the input. The unambiguous function 140 interprets SMS terminology, single word first substring completion, multiword substring completion, stem completion (eg, single format into multiple formats, verb to verbal noun ), Thesaurus references to homonyms or synonyms, spell checking algorithms, spell check tables, phonetic spelling algorithms, phonetic spelling tables, phone number keypad for word conversion (numeric Including completion of possible substrings from the order), frequency-based algorithms, semantic analysis algorithms, location based algorithms, or input by the user To reduce ambiguity about the meaning of a query or partial query It may include other algorithms or facilities.

  Search facility 142 may initiate a search, such as by executing a query (optionally a clarified query) with a search facility such as a search engine. Search engines include Boolean search logic, result categories, term (occurrence) frequency, document (occurrence) frequency, documents selected by other users who entered similar queries, possible result link structures, Alternatively, the search facility may be based on any other known search facility that uses any other known search algorithm.

  A mobile search service (e.g., disclosed herein) can be performed by a user via a user interface of a mobile communication facility 102 such as a mobile phone, cellular phone, satellite phone, GSM phone, or other type of phone. Can be accessed.

  When the mobile communication facility 102 is connected to the network, it can perform mobile content queries using the resources of the mobile search host facility 114, such as the search facility 142. The mobile communication facility 102 may utilize an Internet search facility, such as a search engine, alternatively or in cooperation with the search facility 142. Wireless provider 108 can also search for information available to wireless provider 108, such as mobile subscriber characteristics 112, advertiser data 174, and walled garden 132 content, based on queries entered by the user into mobile communication facility 102. In addition, a query search function can be provided.

  When disconnected from the network, these resources, mobile content, data, characteristics, etc. can be made unavailable to the mobile communication facility 102 to complete a search query. Accordingly, the mobile communication facility 102 can have search capabilities and functions for searching local resources to complete a search query. This local search query feature can complement a network or remote search, or is independent of the network, even if the network is connected and it is fully operational. Can work.

  The local search query function can also be useful to find information that network resources cannot access. Local search query for information stored locally in the mobile communication facility 102, such as content, data files, configuration data, programs, deleted items, personal items, etc. stored in cache memory You can search from the equipment.

  As described herein, mobile search results can include one or more lists for content associated with a search query. The user can interact (interact) with the search results, such as selecting results and receiving further information, through the user interface of the mobile communication facility 102. One aspect of the present invention can facilitate a user to perform other actions related to search results, such as purchasing, previewing content, and saving results. Methods and systems for facilitating these and other actions that can be associated with search results are described below.

  Action commands presented to the user at the mobile communication facility 102 can be associated with the search results based on one aspect of the search results. Action commands can be presented to the user via the user interface of the mobile communication facility 102, and the user can access the action commands via the functionality of this user interface. The action commands can provide additional search results or action commands for the mobile communication facility 102.

  The algorithm facility 144 can receive the user's input in a problem format and evaluate the problem by applying all possible sets of solutions available in the search space. Most fundamentally, the algorithm facility 144 can apply a child / unsophisticated search algorithm consisting of the most intuitive solution available in the search space. Alternatively, the algorithm facility 144 utilizes a sophisticated search algorithm based on a heuristic that utilizes knowledge of the elements of the search space to minimize search time and resource allocation of the algorithm facility 144. You can also. This algorithm can be used to determine the frequency of queries, the frequency of clicks or click-throughs, the speed of queries, the location where the search originated, the store visit, or the mobile website, community tagging (tagging), mobile user scoring (scoring) ) Based on the domain restriction (eg, only “espn.com”), or the algorithm may function to hide or show content on the display 172 to the user. can do.

  The algorithm can be designed to generate an index for information specific to the mobile communication facility 102. For example, the algorithm only searches for mobile tags (eg WML such as text (characters), xHTML-MP, MIME types, and WAP and / or WML, or mobile (application specific headers). It can be performed. The algorithm also includes page width, page volume (eg, number of images and byte size), screen resolution and color capability, font type between content and display 172 capabilities of mobile communication facility 102. And aesthetic compatibility including factors such as size, client-side rendering (such as rendering) capabilities, page complexity (eg, features that are incompatible with or unique to mobile communication facility 102) Can be determined. Compatibility information can also be mixed with other information such as popularity data (eg, WAP gateway, scoring for editing, and / or traffic market data).

  Algorithm facilities 144 include collaborative filtering protocols, category filtering, recommendation systems and / or other processing facilities for analyzing, refining and filtering user input and / or search results. be able to. A collaborative filter can utilize two processing steps. During the first step, other users are identified that have a pattern similar to the rating pattern of the active user. The ratings obtained from these similar users then provide an empirical basis for predicting relevance information with active users. A collaborative filter can be a process that includes both collecting relevant information about active users and removing unmatched (or inappropriate) information from a set of predictive information. It can also be a process including only one of them.

  Collaborative filtering protocols typically include a collection of preference data from a large group of users. This preference data can be statistically analyzed to identify subgroups with similar preference profiles, or characteristics (features) of subgroup members. Various weighted averages, fuzzy logic, or other techniques can be used to summarize or model preference subgroups, and this model / summary can be used to generate preference functions. This function can then be used to match new users with appropriate preference subgroups. In some embodiments, such information can be collected from many individual mobile subscriber characteristic data sets, and data can be collected from users of many mobile communication facilities. For example, the wireless provider 108 can collect preference data from a large group of its customers. In some embodiments, data can be collected from non-mobile users and associated with preference information collected from other online activities (online activities) or offline activities (offline activities). .

 User preferences can be derived from user behavior (or behavior), other implicit characteristics, or those explicitly defined by the user of the mobile communication facility, or some combination thereof. If users explicitly express their preferences (for example, for restaurants, books, e-commerce, music, news, video, formats (formats, etc.), audio types, etc.) It can be stored in a mobile subscriber characteristics database associated with the user's phone. A user purchases a product online, visits a site online, makes a call from a mobile communication facility, makes a call from another facility, views content, or is involved in other activities, etc. Preference can be recorded implicitly through activities. For example, if a user looks at a product and decides not to purchase the product, the user can make an assumption that he is not interested in the product and use this guess as part of the collaborative filtering algorithm. Can do. In addition, inferences can be derived from the type of counterpart (such as a store) that the user has recently called at the mobile communication facility. If the user has repeatedly called the car dealer in the last two weeks, he can get an inference that he is currently looking for car supplies and / or services. User implicit preferences can also be collected by recording all pages visited by the user and the frequency and / or duration of each visit. Generate a user-based preference vector using a binary encoding scheme that encodes visited pages to “1” and pages not visited to “0”, and both within and between users A group of preferences or similarities can be statistically analyzed. Other encoding techniques can group several sites according to commonality aspects, and navigation behavior can be analyzed using any number of Euclidean distance methods and other distance methods and / or matching techniques Is done. In some embodiments, user preference data may be collected from within a mobile subscriber characteristics database. In some embodiments, user preference data may be collected from outside the mobile subscriber characteristics database. In some embodiments, offline behavior can also be used to characterize user preferences.

  An implicit (or potential) mobile search query can be automatically generated from the mobile communication facility 102 based on at least one or more parameters for delivering relevant mobile content to the mobile communication facility 102. In this case, the relevance may be based at least in part on information related to the mobile communication facility 102.

  Automatic generation of a search query can be an implicit search. This implicit search can be one that does not require the user to manipulate commands of the mobile communication facility. For example, the user selects a menu item, presses a button, selects a touch screen icon, issues a voice command, or explicitly utilizes other commands associated with the mobile communication facility 102 You can't need that.

  In some embodiments, automatic generation of search queries may be completed by server 134.

  In some embodiments, certain parameters can be used to partially determine the relevance of mobile content. The parameter may be information regarding the mobile communication facility 102. This information can be associated with user characteristics. User characteristics include user age, gender, race, religion, area code, postal code, home address, work address, billing address, credit information, family information, income information, date of birth, place of birth, employment , Job title (or title), length of work, and other information related to user characteristics. For example, a user-specific employer can be used to partially determine the relevance of a news headline in search results obtained from an automatically generated news headline search query. If the user's employer is an automobile manufacturer, the news headline related to the temporary dismissal of the carpenter may be determined to be more relevant than the headline related to currency fluctuations in China. Can therefore be preferentially delivered to the user's mobile communication facility 102. Similarly, a user's employer parameters can result in the generation of a search query for the employer's current stock price and the distribution of that information to the user's mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, the parameters can also be associated with user history, user transactions, geographic location, geographic proximity, user equipment, time of day, and other user characteristics. For example, parameters associated with a user can include age (27 years), gender (male), previous user transaction (purchase of jazz records), geographic location (New York City). Automatically generated searches can return search results that are ranked, ordered, indexed, or prioritized according to user characteristics or relevance to multiple user characteristics. In this example, the fact that the user is a young man in New York City who has a history of purchasing jazz records prioritizes delivery of content related to the user's mobile communication facility 102, for example Jazz record retail outlets, jazz record sales retail outlets in New York City, jazz record retail outlets within walking distance of users, and so on.

  In some embodiments, the parameters are derived from display capabilities, display size, display resolution, processing speed, audio capabilities, video capabilities, cache size, storage capabilities, memory capacity, and other characteristics of the mobile communication facility. It can also include characteristics of the mobile communication facility that can be selected from the group. Information about the mobile communication facility 102 can be obtained from a wireless operator (eg, wireless carrier; the same applies hereinafter), a wireless service provider 108, a telecommunications service provider, or other provider associated with the mobile communication facility 102 (such as an internet provider) Can be provided by. Continuing with the above example of a jazz enthusiast user described above, if a new video of a jazz performer during a concert is available, the automatically generated query is sent to the user's mobile communication facility 102 as appropriate. It is possible to determine whether or not the user has the video capability (video function), and if so, the user can be provided with an opportunity to download the video (video).

  In some embodiments, the associated mobile content can be stored locally at the mobile communication facility 102 (eg, stored in a cache memory). Locally stored information can be loaded prior to new content associated with a new search query. Locally stored information can be a date or time limit, previous use (presence / absence) of locally stored information, or other factors that affect the locally stored information expiration Can be related to For example, using a geographical location and time parameters, an automatically generated search query can return results including the current day's weather conditions for that location. These results can be stored locally in the mobile communication facility 102 with an expiration date of 11:59 pm on the same day. In some embodiments, previous viewing of stored content, such as video, can be used to determine to allow future use of the content. For example, a stored jazz musician concert video can be allowed to be played five times on the mobile communication facility 102 after expiration, and the video can be purchased by the user to view the video again. Request to do.

  In some embodiments, the association can be based at least in part on a statistical association. Relevance can be a score (or score). The statistical association can be associated with an association between mobile content and information associated with the mobile communication facility 102. Information related to the mobile communication facility 102 may include user history, user transactions, geographic location, geographic proximity, user equipment, time of day, user characteristics, or characteristics of the mobile communication facility. User characteristics include age, gender, race, religion, area code, postal code, home address, work address, billing address, credit information, family information, income information, date of birth, place of birth, employer, It can be selected from a group consisting of job title (or title), working period, and other user characteristics. The characteristics of mobile communication equipment, display capacity, display size, display resolution, processing speed, audio capacity, video capacity, cache (cache memory) size, storage capacity, memory capacity (storage capacity), other mobile communication equipment You can select from a group of characteristics. For example, the mobile communication facility 102 can be associated with parameters such as geographic location (San Francisco), user history (previous call to a Chinese restaurant), and time (7 pm). The mobile communication facility 102 has a restaurant, Chinese restaurant, or San Francisco location, or opens at 7 pm, or a search query based on the relevance of the content to some combination of these. It can be automatically generated and prioritized for content provision.

  In some embodiments, information related to the mobile communication facility 102 is provided by a wireless operator, wireless service provider 108, telecommunications service provider, or other provider (such as an internet provider) associated with the mobile communication facility 102. can do.

  In some embodiments, the basic implementation of a collaborative filtering algorithm involves evaluating the reputation (or popularity) of a product, service, business, transaction, or website favorably (somewhat favorable). It involves recording the total number of users in the set (which can include preferences), or tracking by recording the number of users who repeatedly visit the website. In essence, this algorithm assumes that new users will prefer what previous users liked. In some embodiments, a weighted average (weighted average) process is performed to carve out a subgroup of all users who valued the overall unreputable product for the entire user data set.

  A more robust collaborative filtering procedure, sometimes called the K-nearestneighbor algorithm, was used to predict the variable of interest (hereinafter referred to as the variable of interest) for members of the “target dataset” consisting of new users. Use a “training dataset” based on user behavior. In addition to user preference data, the training data set may have additional predictors (such as age, income, gender, date, or place of birth) that can be included in the mobile subscriber characteristics database. it can. Interest variables can include the type of product purchased, the amount purchased, and the like. For each column (single user data) in the target data set, the algorithm locates “K” nearest members of the training data set. The proximity or distance used by this algorithm is generally a measure of Euclidean distance. The algorithm then finds (or determines) a weighted sum of the variables of interest for the K nearest neighbors. In this case, this weight is the reciprocal of the calculated distance. This process is then repeated for all remaining columns in the target set. From this information, a model for future predictions can be obtained. As the user's reputation increases, the training data set can be updated to include new columns, so that the data set captures any changes in user preferences for use in revising the predictive model. can do.

  Other methods that can also be successfully used for statistical clustering of user preference groups include weighted majority, Bayesian prediction, Pearson product Examples include rate correlation (Pearson product correlation) and factor analysis.

  In addition to the collaborative filtering overview above, the following textbooks may be referenced for further information on collaborative filtering, which textbooks are incorporated herein by reference: “Nakamura, A. and Abe N., 1998. Collaborative Filtering using Weighted Majority Prediction Algorithms in: Proceedings of ICML'98, 395-403. Mogran Kaufman Eds.

  In addition to or in place of collaborative filtering or other prioritized measures for various information determined by other methods, non-priority type or objective type data may be used to You can further refine search results for users. For example, the user's location can be determined by the GPS system (or other location-based service) and this location can be used to filter the results with or without collaborative filtering. Can be used. In some embodiments, the search is further refined (enhanced) using factors such as time, device type, time related activity, location related activity, invoice (or invoice) related activity, etc. can do. In some embodiments, such information can be used in a category style filter (ie, a filter designed to include or exclude results based on the data). In some embodiments, such information can be used by a collaborative filter algorithm. In some embodiments, such information can be used to filter the results without consideration in the collaborative filter algorithm.

  In some embodiments, retrieve search results, refine search queries, make corrections, make suggestions, remove ambiguities in search queries, classify results, and perform explicit or implicit searches Data used in processes that perform, perform filtering, collaborative filtering, or perform other processes defined herein may be stored in a database (eg, a relational database). In some embodiments, the data can be examined (or retrieved), associated, combined, extracted, or otherwise processed or used (to obtain information). For further information related to the association and investigation (or retrieval) of such data, please refer to the following document, which is incorporated herein by reference: “Integrating Association Rule Mining with Relational Database Systems: Alternatives and Implications, by Sunita Sarawagi, Shiby Thomas, Rakesh Agrawal, published by the IBM Almaden Research Center.

  The recommendation system can use information from the user profile to make predictions about other information / products that may be of interest to the user. Data used in the recommendation system can be obtained using explicit and implicit data collection. Explicit collections are collected from users who, for example, directly evaluate items, rank products, express preferences, list things they like or dislike (make a list), etc. Data. Implicit collection refers to data collected as a by-product of user behavior, such as, for example, products viewed in an online shop or purchased products. The recommendation system can compare the collected data with similar data collected from others and determine a list of recommended items for the active user.

  Displaying the search results in an ordered manner includes mobile communication facility 102, mobile subscriber characteristics 112, distribution facility, unambiguous facility, parental control 150, search algorithm facility 144, carrier business rules 158, and / or sponsorship facility 162. It can be based on. Ordering (or arranging) the content for display can also be based on the amount of content available within a category. The display 172 can be changed based on the screen size of the mobile communication facility 102 and sound or other multimedia content can be adapted to the capabilities of the mobile communication facility 102. Content ordering and display can be organized by content type, artist (such as a performer), date, or concept (eg, Jaguar as a car or Jaguar as an animal), and Other categories can be derived from inferences within the mobile search host facility 114. In addition to ordering, weighting in the display 172 can highlight content or stop highlighting content. For example, weighting can be done using size, movement, lack of symmetry, flashy colors, sound, multimedia, or other means of enhancing content. In the case of a sponsor-provided link, it is possible to provide an opportunity to optimize yield (for example, profit and yield, the same applies hereinafter) (for example, multiply the number of clicks by the bid amount).

  The functionality of the parental control 150 can be set by the wireless provider 108 when a user account is created. A web-based interface can be used to change or modify parent controls and to register (or enter) / change password protection. Alternatively, parental controls can be managed via an interface included within the mobile communication facility 102.

  The privacy facility 152 may comprise one or more facilities for protecting the user's privacy, such as an encryption facility for encrypting the user's confidential data. Privacy facility 152 may also include facilities to protect users from unwanted content such as unwanted advertising emails, spam, spyware, viruses. The privacy facility may be modified, for example, to filter (and remove) such content before presenting the results, or in other embodiments, less likely to reveal the user's confidential information. Or a query that is less likely to return unwanted content. The privacy facility 152 can also work with the wireless provider 108 in a manner similar to a secure channel (secure channel) such as VPN. This secure channel makes it possible to share confidential information safely.

  The transaction security facility 154 can include additional privacy settings and parent control settings, security settings for transactions to protect wireless shopping, and digital rights management. In some embodiments, such facilities are authentic participants who participate in transactions based on password-based security, public / private key facilities, or mobile communication facilities 102. Other suitable security protocols can be included to ensure that there is.

  The carrier business rules 158 of the wireless provider 108 can be associated with or included in the mobile search host facility 114. These rules determine what content the user can access (walled garden content or non-walledgarden content), the user interface Where to place sponsor logs and links, which sponsor equipment to include, rules for ad inventory (or inventory items), (eg, access conditions (or status), user controls (or user controls) ), Rules that allow users to classify transactions (based on parental control, etc.), and rules that allow auctions to be managed. If duplicate information is present in the search results, the preferred provider content can be given higher priority than the other.

  In addition to providing the speech recognition 160 in the mobile communication facility 102, the speech recognition can also be included in the mobile search host facility 114, which includes software algorithms and hardware bases for accurate speech recognition. Both solutions can be used.

  The sponsorship facility 162 stores premium content from sponsors who pay the wireless provider 108 to display premium content to associated users. Link sponsor information to a website visited by a user (ie pay-per-click) or link to a phone call (ie pay-per-click advertising (pay -per-call). Sponsor information can include text only (character) only information, photographic graphic information, graphic art design, video, and various combinations thereof. Sponsor information can also take the form of an interactive software application (ie, a game) or a special ringtone (eg, jamtone). Sponsor information can be displayed to the user based on the relationship between the sponsor information and the user's search query, a list of results, an item (such as an item) or category, and a website visited by the user. A web page can display content for a syndicated advertisement or be linked to a syndicated advertisement. Further, the wireless search platform 100 shown in FIG. 1 may include sponsor information of the type described above in a separate database 128.

  The implicit query facility 164 displays relevant content to the user based on user activity other than explicit search queries. For example, in GPS data, the locator facility 110 can indicate that a cell phone (cell phone) user is near a sponsor restaurant. Further, the clock included in the mobile communication facility 102 and / or the wireless communication facility can indicate that it is night. The forecasting algorithm combines this information and makes (or creates) an implicit query that the user is interested in a nearby restaurant where they can eat dinner, and the content (ad, phone number, menu ) Can be sent for immediate display on the user's mobile communication facility 102. Other implicit queries may similarly be based on the user's parental controls 150, carrier business rules 158, results equipment 148, etc. (one or a combination of these).

  The wireless search platform 100 shown in FIG. 1 may include a server 134 and a database 138 connected to the Internet. A database 138 connected to the wireless platform 100 via the Internet can store information such as individual business websites on which users conduct transactions (such as transactions).

  The wireless search platform 100 shown in FIG. 1 may include a database that stores wireless carrier business rules 130. The carrier business rules 130 may be used to advertise content (see walled garden content 132 below) based on the economic interests (or economic interests) of the wireless provider 108 or the importance (degree) of the sponsor 128. Can be prioritized. Additional carrier business rules 130 may include rules described herein and rules described in documents incorporated herein by reference.

  The wireless search platform 100 shown in FIG. 1 may include a database that stores “walled garden” content 132. The walled garden content 132 is where the wireless provider 108 earns additional revenue based on, for example, user click-throughs or content downloads (eg, ringtones, wallpaper, calls (sounds and melodies), music, video). It can be content. Because of this additional revenue, the wireless provider 108, through its carrier business rules 130, prioritizes this advantageous content over search results that are similarly related but do not provide economic benefits to the wireless provider 108. Can be ensured.

  FIG. 2 is a schematic block diagram 200 illustrating a plurality of processes for processing user queries and generating results that are delivered to users. In the illustrated embodiment, a query mode 202 is entered. The query mode can be in the form of an explicit query entered by an active user, or by some feature related to the user and / or user behavior (eg, the user's GPS location) rather than by the user. It can be an implicit query that is started (or launched). The start of query input 208 that is explicitly made by the user can be paired with additional information obtained from the associated implicit query 204. Depending on the clarity of the query input 208, the query may require correction 244, disambiguation (disambiguation) 240, or redirection (forwarding) 250. Query input 208 can be paired with recommendation (recommendation) 248, suggestion 242, or classified (254) prior to further processing. If the query input 208 is initiated by voice rather than text (characters), it can be linked (or synchronized) with the speech recognition (252) program. All or any of the processes used to optimize the search can be refined using information related to mobile communication equipment, such as mobile subscriber characteristic information, location, time, filtering algorithms, etc. .

  Once the first explicit and / or implicit query is made, the query 212 is processed to obtain the first result (214). Additional filtering 258 and aggregation 260 can be applied to both the query 212 and the initially obtained result 214. Walled garden content 262 and sponsored content 220 can also be combined with query 212 to provide a modified result 222 to the user. The result 222 may also trigger the sending of additional sponsor 224 messages and advertisements. Link (combine) information from pay-per-click (PPC) sponsors 228 so that users can quickly learn about sponsor services, phone numbers, addresses, business hours, sales (sale etc.), etc. can do. If the start of the query input 208 has received, for example, redirection 250, the query input can be returned to the query stage 212 or the result 222 based on the query can be immediately presented to the user. If the results are obtained before being displayed 172, the user's mobile communication facility 102 (which includes a spider that performs a mock compatibility (or suitability) test with the user's mobile communication facility 102) The content can be tested for compatibility with the communication facility 102 (including the type of communication facility 102) to determine which of the results is compatible with the user's mobile communication facility 102. In this case, the spider emulates the processing characteristics of commercial wireless communication equipment arranged over a wide area during the test.

  Query result 222 is arranged prior to display (232) based on, for example, sponsor 224, mobile subscriber characteristics, information about mobile communication facilities, location, carrier rules, filtering results, and / or priorities of walled garden 262 Can be ordered (230). Once the results (222) are displayed (232), the user can initiate an interaction with the information / transaction 234 (eg, phone call, link click, online order). In this case, the information is distributed wirelessly via the wireless platform 100 shown in FIG. 1 (238).

  One aspect of the present invention relates to a syndication program that can add mobile content to a website when the website is being presented to a mobile communication facility (eg, a cell phone). Such syndication can be determined by the wireless operator, wireless service provider, telecommunications provider (or telecommunications carrier, the same shall apply hereinafter) or by the determination of the website owner via an opt-in process Can be. This opt-in process can include contracting (signing up) with a wireless provider, mobile search provider, or other related entity (business entity such as a business). This opt-in process can also include inserting tags into the website. Mobile content can be automatically added to a website page at a specified URL or multiple URLs. The mobile content can be added without an index (instruction) for the page on which the mobile content is to be placed. Tags or other encoded information can be included on the website to indicate where the mobile content is located on the site and when it is delivered to the mobile communication facility. The syndication process can be based on context-based relevance, behavior (or behavior) -based relevance, or a combination of these two technologies to associate relevant mobile content with a site It can be based on. Server applications (eg, WAP server applications, WAP gateways, mobile application gateways, etc.), when delivering mobile content to mobile communication facilities, regardless of whether the website is tagged or not, Can be automatically added to the site. While presented, mobile content can include a web content placement auction or other process for determining which content to associate with keywords, topics, websites, and the like.

  The relevance of mobile content available for syndication can be determined as automatic syndication of mobile content to a website is based at least in part on using context information associated with the website. Context information that can be associated with a website includes keywords, terms (terms, etc.) or phrases placed on the website, inbound links to the website, outbound links from the website, Associated click patterns and click-throughs (including click patterns and click-throughs associated with sponsored content appearing on the website), metadata, and time, duration, depth and frequency of website use Website usage patterns (usage patterns), website hosts, search verticals associated with the website, and other indicia (or indicia) of the website context.

  Context information associated with a website can be associated with mobile content available for syndication and presentation to the website based at least in part on the relevance. Mobile content available for syndication is obtained from a corporate association (or joint use facility) of mobile content sponsors participating in contextual syndication programs provided by wireless operators, wireless service providers, telecommunications providers, mobile search providers, etc. be able to. Alternatively, mobile content available for syndication can be obtained from outside the context syndication program and used to generate mobile sponsor campaigns for presentation to potential participants in the context syndication program can do.

  The relevance score can indicate the relevance between the context information associated with the website and the mobile context available for syndication. This relevance score may be a numerical summary of the statistical association between the context website data parameter and the mobile content parameter. This relevance score may be an owner score assigned to mobile content by a wireless operator, wireless service provider, mobile search provider, or telecommunications service provider (communication service provider). The context data parameters associated with the website can be standardized into one list. The mobile content can receive a relevance score for each element in the context data parameter list. For example, mobile content such as a ringtone download advertisement can receive a relevance score for each of a plurality of websites. An “entertainment” website may receive a higher relevance score than a “weather” website. Similarly, the inbound link context information associated with “music” may receive a higher relevance score than the inbound link associated with “pet”. Mobile content related to ringtones obtained from popular Chinese songs can receive a higher relevance score for context information of “server host = China” than “server host = Argentina”. The context information parameter “keyword = ringtone” or “keyword = music download” is scored as being more relevant to syndicated mobile content related to the ringtone, etc. (ie, gives a score) You can also The relevance score of the syndicated mobile content can be stored in the mobile content relevance dictionary.

  A program for automatically syndicating mobile content to a website may be based on the relevance of the mobile content to context information associated with the website. Automation of mobile content syndication can be based at least in part on associating electronic information (eg, metadata) associated with a website. What is included in the metadata may be information regarding the relevance of the website context data parameters to the mobile content data parameters. Only a few of the many examples of how metadata can include relevance information includes metadata that indicates relevance to a website (eg, “ringtone”) , Metadata indicating the minimum relevance score associated with the context data parameter required to syndicate mobile content to the website. The metadata can be communicated with a mobile content relevance dictionary to identify, receive, and provide relevant mobile content to a website.

  In some embodiments, the carrier rules database includes search techniques, search methods, information about searchable content locations, walled garden rules, rules outside the garden (or garden rule violations), search rules outside the network (or Network search rule violation), search rule in network, search result presentation rule, sponsor presentation rule, sponsor search rule, sponsor rule, content presentation rule, and search, display, arrangement (ordering), and / or mobile communication facility Other information and rules regarding the presentation of information regarding 102 are included.

  Career business rules, for example, how to unambiguous search terms (clarify without ambiguity) or correct, or what search terms are the result of entered or submitted queries An indication (guidance) can be provided as to whether to propose, how to present the results, in what order, or how to select and / or present a sponsor. The carrier business rules may provide an indication regarding when to search a database in the network (eg, walled garden content 132) and when to search a database outside the network (eg, database 138 via server 134). it can. For example, the wireless provider 108 wants the user of the mobile communication facility 102 to order music, video, ringtones, wallpaper, screen savers, etc. from the in-network database of walled garden content 132, while the wireless provider , You may want current news to come from sources outside the network. The wireless provider can then set these rules and store them in the carrier business rules database 130. In this case, these rules can be retrieved by the wireless provider (or optionally as mobile) while searching, presenting or arranging (ordering or ordering) or other factors (events) according to the invention. From the communication facility 102 or other associated facility).

  The algorithm facility 144 can be a software tool used to evaluate multiple possible solutions based on a user query. The set of all possible solutions is sometimes called the search space (or search space). In general, uninformed search does not use information (knowledge) for a relatively simple and direct exploration of the search space (ie, a “naive” search algorithm). May be used. In contrast, an informed search algorithm that uses information (knowledge) can apply knowledge about the structure of the search space during the search using a heuristic approach. Algorithms that may be used by the algorithm facility 142 include: search without information, search with information, tree search, list search, adversarial search, constraint satisfaction model (constraintsatisffaction), Genetic search, probabilistic search, simulated annealing, string search, taboo search, and / or federated search-these Includes but is not limited to-.

  In wireless search platform 100, mobile communication facility 102 may include a cache (storage location), such as a cache memory, or a portion of memory organized as a cache. The memory can be a hard disk (drive), static memory, or non-volatile memory. The memory can be built into the mobile communication facility 102 or can be removable, such as a memory card.

  The cache memory may include proposals such as mobile content that can be accessed and presented on the display of the mobile communication facility 102 as a result of an action by a user of the mobile communication facility 102. Stored information (eg, stored in a cache memory) can also be accessed and presented as a result of actions by a provider of services to the mobile communication facility 102 or by an automated application running on the mobile communication facility 102. Proposals can be stored locally on the mobile communication facility 102 and can be harmonized (or combined) with the performance of network updates to facilitate optimization of the overall performance of the wireless platform 100.

  Data (eg, user name, address, search query) stored in the cache memory can be entered directly by the user. Alternatively, the data stored in the cache can be transmitted from the mobile network from the server 134, the wireless provider 108, or the mobile search host facility 114. The stored information can be compressed before transmission to the mobile communication facility 102 and can be decompressed (restored) after receipt of the mobile communication facility 102. Data can be decompressed when received, or it can be decompressed when the data is accessed for presentation.

  FIG. 3 illustrates a generalized unification process of the unification facility 140 associated with a data source, such as the mobile communication facility 102 and the mobile subscriber characteristics database 112, in accordance with an aspect of the present invention. The unambiguous facility 140 is a means for extracting greater clarity from ambiguous user queries. As shown in FIG. 3, the query input 120 may be processed through the wireless communication facility 104 and / or the wireless provider 108 to the unification facility 140. Although the example provided in FIG. 3 shows a disambiguation facility 140 linked (coupled) to the mobile subscriber characteristics database 112, the disambiguation facility 140 may be connected to any number of other data sources (eg, carrier Business rules 130, content walled gardens 132, etc.). Similarly, disambiguation (disambiguation) can be handled by facilities other than the disambiguation facility 140 (eg, parental control facility 150 or algorithm facility 144). As shown in FIG. 3, the disambiguation facility 140 can receive a query from the wireless communication facility 104 or the wireless provider 108, and the query is known information about users stored in the mobile subscriber database 112 (eg, Age, gender, and past Internet use (usage and frequency). This additional information combined with the original query input 120 can allow processing of the unambiguous (i.e., disambiguated) query. For example, the user may enter a query input 120 of “Royals”. This query input 120 may be processed through the wireless communication facility 104 or wireless provider 108 to the unification facility 140 coupled to the mobile subscriber database 112. The database 112 includes therein the addresses of users in Kansas City, Missouri. The disambiguation facility 140 associates this demographic information with the query input 120 “Royals” so that the user can find information related to the KansasCity Royals baseball team rather than information about the Swedish royal family. Can be predicted (ie, clarified). Unification can include unification of parts of speech, unification of word meaning, phrase identification, named entry recognition, or full sentence parsing. Part of speech unification refers to the process of assigning a part of speech tag (eg, noun, verb, adjective) to each word in a query. By assigning a part-of-speech tag to each word, the device can make inferences about each word by context (context, context, background, etc.). For example, the word “house” can be a noun or a verb. By attaching an appropriate part-of-speech tag to this word, additional information about the user query and its final object can be extracted. Disambiguation of word meaning refers to a process of classifying (or rearranging) words having a plurality of meanings. Phrase identification refers to the process of extracting the context of an individual word by associating each word in the phrase with another word. Named entry recognition generally refers to recognizing (or identifying) a proper noun that refers to a particular name, location, country, and the like. Full sentence parsing is the process of breaking a sentence into smaller units and identifying the relationship between the grammatical role of each unit and other units. These and other techniques can be used in the disambiguation facility 140 to infer the meaning intended by the user for the search or search string.

  FIG. 4 illustrates an interactive process between the mobile communication facility 102 and a query support facility 210 that can be used for assisted query formation 2400. When a user submits a query input 120 to the mobile communication facility 102, a correction 244 process is required for assisted query formation 2400 that is sufficient to produce an understandable and useful result set (result set). There is a case. This process may take place at the client side 102 and / or within the mobile communication facility 104. As part of the correction 244 process, information specific to the type of mobile communication facility 102 may be used. For example, if a device has its own delivery capabilities, it may be necessary to correct the query to obtain a result set that matches (or is compatible with) those capabilities. Information stored in the mobile subscriber characteristics database 112, location (location) information 2408, or time information 2410 can also be used in the correction 244 process.

  FIG. 5 shows the query results ordered (ordered) based on the association of the query input 120 with additional data sources, such as the mobile subscriber characteristics database 112, filter algorithm facility 144, location database 2408, and / or time data 2410. ) (500), display (502), and show a generalized process for prioritizing sponsorship 504. Prioritization of the array 500, display 502, sponsorship 504 may require one or more of these additional data facilities, as well as any data facility, as required. It is also possible not to.

  In some embodiments, the methods and systems disclosed herein may be used with any of the features 112 described herein and documents incorporated herein by reference. Can be configured to provide an optimized search based on mobile subscriber characteristics 112, including any of the characteristics described in. Accordingly, these methods and systems can include providing a search function adapted to the mobile device and adapting the search function based on the subscriber characteristics of the mobile device, where Subscriber characteristics are obtained at least in part from a mobile subscriber data facility managed by a mobile device service carrier (such as a carrier).

  In some embodiments, the adapted search function is an implicit query, active query, unambiguous action, retrieval (or search) function, filtering function, presentation function, routing function, or search result search or presentation. Other functions or actions related to the start, processing, or completion of

  FIG. 6 illustrates a mobile communication search facility 142 in accordance with the principles of the present invention. In this embodiment, wireless provider 108 facilitates voice access from mobile communication facility 102 via voice gateway 602. Voice gateway 602 can be, for example, a telecommunications router. Information related to what voice call was made or received by the mobile communication facility 102 may be stored in the access information database 608. Once the voice access information is stored in the access information database 608, this information can be retrieved by a personal filter 144, which processes the voice driven information and relates to its access. You can get more information. For example, the personal filter 144 may perform a reverse phone number process for calls (or phone calls) received by or made by the mobile communication facility 102 to generate the call. Information about called facilities (such as stores) and individuals can be determined. Such information can be matched with the time when the call was made, the call duration, and who started the call. Information related to voice calls can be further processed, or inferences can be made from information indicating user preferences. For example, if a user calls a take out restaurant almost every day at lunch time, he guesses that the user is calling more places where he can take out for lunch can do. Similarly, if the user has made 10 calls to different new car dealers in the last two weeks, it is assumed that the user is buying a car. This information can be used in conjunction with a collaborative style filter (processing within the personal filter 44) to infer future behavior or likes and dislikes based on similar behaviors of other people.

  Access information can also be collected based on internet activity via the internet gateway 604. Search queries, clickthroughs, etc. can be tracked and stored in the access database 608 for retrieval from the personal filter 144. As with voice information, web interaction data can be manipulated, and future behavior, likes and dislikes can be predicted. When monitoring the behavior of the Internet, activities inside the garden and outside the garden can be tracked.

  The position information and time information can be tracked and stored in the position information database 612. Similar to voice information and web interaction information, location and time information can also be used by the personal filter 144.

  User information 112, such as personal information and information used to set a user account for the wireless provider 108, can be maintained in a database accessible by the personal filter 144.

  The personal filter 144 receives a search query from the mobile communication facility 102, retrieves information from each of the databases 612, 112, and 608, processes all the information through an optimization algorithm, and performs an optimized search on the results. can do. In addition, results can be obtained and processed using personal filter 144 along with information related to other mobile communication facilities to produce filtered results for mobile communication facility 102. Can do.

  Although the databases 612, 112 and 608 are illustrated as separate databases, it should be understood that they can be combined into one or more databases, such as a relational database. Although the personal filter 144 is illustrated as being in the area of the wireless provider 108, the personal filter 144 is present elsewhere on the mobile communication facility 102 or within other related facilities (or devices). It should be understood that it is possible.

  8A-8C illustrate various form factors of mobile communication facilities that can be used with the systems described herein. FIG. 8A shows a PDA phone with a touch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard. FIG. 8B shows a PDA phone with a two-letter-per-key keypad with two characters assigned to one key. FIG. 8C shows a slide-up mobile phone with the keypad visible.

  FIGS. 9A-9D illustrate the progression of the user interface screen 400 associated with a search on the mobile communication device 102. The user interface screen can be generated by the client application interface described above. Beginning with screen shot 9A, a query input facility 120 is provided. A logo 902 can be labeled on this screen and a suggestion box 908 can be provided. As one example based on this interface, a simplified search query “Br Sp” can be typed into the search query input facility 120. The disambiguation facility 140 (not shown in this figure) can operate with a personal filter 144 (not shown in this figure) to unambiguate partially entered terms. In addition, the suggestion facility may operate such that suggestions for partially entered search queries are presented in search box 908 (not shown in this figure). If the first page of the proposal does not contain the desired search query, more results can be displayed by activating the down arrow 924. Navigation equipment 910 can be provided. The navigation facility is, for example, a multi-directional joystick style keypad on the surface of the mobile communication facility 102, a touch screen, a keypad, or the like. The navigation facility 910 (as indicated by the darkened arrow indicating the lower position) can be used to highlight “Britney Spears”. When “Britney Spears” is highlighted (910), the navigation facility 912 is used to select a category (as indicated by the darkened center square) and as indicated by the darkened right arrow. ) Can be deployed. When the proposed “Britney Spears” is selected and expanded, a category 914 of search results can be presented.

  FIGS. 10A-10B illustrate some further screen shots in the progression of screen shots associated with searching from the user interface of the mobile communication facility 102. The search result—in this case, a song related to Britney Spears—is selected (1002). When this song is selected, delivery options can be presented to the user. For example, the user can be presented with a preview option 1004 for viewing a song. The user can also be presented with content-related options that indicate how (or how) to use the content 1008, so that the content is properly formatted, installed, and one or more appropriate applications Or it can be associated with one or more devices and / or the user can be presented with options for different file types 1010.

  FIG. 11 illustrates a scenario where a user 1104 of a mobile communication facility 102 desires to obtain relevant search results using his mobile communication facility 102. Before the search, the user's presence, the user's personality (or appearance), the user's phone habits, the user's web (browsing) tendency, information about other people's habits, options are presented There is already information related to speculations about other people's behavior and other information that can be used in developing results for this particular user 1104. For example, the user can be connected to the wireless service provider 108 directly or via another facility. By interacting with the wireless service provider 108 (such as dialogue), the user can open content (public content) 138, information in the area of the wireless provider 108, walled garden content 132, carrier rules 130, mobile subscriber characteristics information. 112, sponsor information 128, information such as time information (eg, local time or time associated with other locations), location information indicated by location equipment 110 or provided via location equipment 110 over the Internet. Can be obtained through. Any or all of this information is processed by a personal filter 144 (eg, a collaborative filter) within the mobile search host facility 114 to refine the search query or the result is a user 1104 at the mobile communication facility 102. The results can be improved (filtering: removing unwanted ones) before being provided to.

  The implicit search scenario associated with FIG. 11 can be as follows. A person 1104 is walking down the street at 7pm. The location of the mobile communication facility 102 is determined using a GPS system (ie, in relation to the location facility 110). This position is then stored. Advertisers interested in the time of a periodic implicit search, or because the user ’s habits indicate that the user is seeking immediate results, or who are interested in pushing the ad 174, or because there is a local sale (sale on the land), or because there is an activity nearby (such as an event), or for other temporary reasons, An implicit search is initiated because there are other reasons based on activity or other reasons for initiating an implicit search. Once the search is initiated, the stored location information can be transmitted to the mobile search host facility. The mobile search host facility 142 may also collect information from other relevant sources (eg, mobile subscriber characteristics database 112, sponsor information database 128, carrier rules 130). The mobile search host facility now has several data sources (eg, mobile subscriber characteristics database 112, sponsor database 128, content 132, carrier rules, etc.) that are available to the user's location, time, and / or mobile search host facility 114. 130 and other information related to the open web content 138), and is ready to perform a search based on personal filters in the mobile search host facility 114. All of this information can indicate that now is the approximate time for the user 1104 to have a meal (dinner), which causes the mobile search host facility 114 to send the results regarding the meal to the mobile communication facility 102. Can be provided. In these results, the sponsor may have participated in a search buy / sell auction (search marketing auction) in an attempt to send the sponsor's information to the user's mobile communication facility 102. For example, a restaurant in building 1102C may be a high bidder for a meal-related keyword auction within 5 miles of another building 1102C where user 1104 is located, in which case the user 1104 provided When interacting with the restaurant information (access, etc.), the restaurant becomes a sponsor and information that is desired to be displayed on the mobile communication facility 102 is displayed. This information can be prevented from being presented until the user decides to view the search results (although it may not have been presented before). If the user 1104 does not interact with sponsored results downloaded to the mobile communication facility 102, the sponsor does not have to pay the wireless provider 108 for fees for sponsored content. You may do it. If the user 1104 does not interact with restaurant information downloaded to the mobile communication facility 102, the restaurant may or may not pay the wireless provider 108.

  Although several embodiments with an implicit search have been described in connection with FIG. 11, it will be appreciated that the same or similar techniques can be provided for an explicit search. For example, the user 1104 may be in the area of the office building 1102A and looking for the office building 1102A. The user 1104 can enter a search query that includes the name of the office building 1102B, and the name of the office building can be combined with the user's location and time to better refine the search results for the user.

  In some embodiments, inventory items for third party incoming billing ads can be provided in the form of XML feeds, each of which includes keyword matching, advertiser and advertising information, bid price, Returns specific result data for each query regarding geographic filter settings. This information can then be analyzed and grouped into a result set (result set) stacked at the top of the list of “natural” yellow pages. A yield optimization algorithm can be used to ensure that each query is responded with a set of associated cashable (or profitable) paid content. The yield optimization algorithm simultaneously determines placement and rank taking into account several variables including relevance, geography, click-through / call-through rate, and bid price. Ultimately demographic / behavioral factors that can match relevance, in part, with keywords, location, and information provided in advertisements and / or assigned business categories Can be determined by a query string containing With respect to geography, only businesses that serve each geographic region (zip code, city, state (or country)) specified by the advertiser can be presented. The algorithm for click-through / call-through rate can also take into account how often the user actually calls the advertiser when determining what best matches the query. The bid price refers to the placement and rank of a given advertisement that is determined in part by the amount paid by the advertiser.

  In some embodiments, an advertiser can provide a user interface that enables the generation of advertisements and the selection of keywords to associate with advertisements and / or one or more service areas that can access the advertisements. Through this, it is possible to generate and manage its own mobile search call-in (pay-per-call) advertising campaign and bid on the service. For example, the advertiser may choose the ad title, the “Landing page” URL / address (the page that the user will be directed to instead of being displayed to the user), the “Display” URL / address (within the ad) And the original advertising content including the advertisement description (lines 1-2, for displaying the advertisement). Next, the advertiser can input a keyword (search phrase) in which the advertisement should appear. For keyword entry, manual entry (the advertiser can type / copy keywords manually), use of a keyword suggestion tool / thesaurus (the advertiser can use the estimated monthly search volume and maximum bid) , Synonyms (or synonyms) or related keywords) and / or bulk upload (advertisers can upload keywords in bulk when dealing with a large number of keywords) There are several ways to do this. Finally, advertisers have only users who are in (or reside in) a particular geographic region, only those that match a set of demographic user characteristics, and / or have a specific mobile communication facility 102 It can be desired to target only a subset of users, such as users only.

  Once the advertiser has selected one or more of the above conditions, the advertiser can set a specific or maximum price that is willing to pay for a click-through to his website. Bid, each keyword associated with a given ad, or any other criteria (or criteria), or a combination of criteria (or criteria) used by the advertiser for the purpose of placing the advertiser's ads Can be against. Each keyword can be bid individually or the advertiser can apply one bid price across all new keywords for a new advertisement. Advertisers could also view the highest bid for each keyword directly through the user interface to assess keyword competition and ensure that their advertisements appear in the desired location. The bidding process may also include an “Auto-Bid” feature that allows the platform to manage advertiser bids directly. For example, by specifying the desired location of the advertisement and the maximum amount that the advertiser is willing to pay for each click, the advertiser can monitor the competitive landscape and place the desired location ( Advertiser bids can be adjusted to pay only the minimum amount required to secure a spot) (at most, up to a specified maximum amount).

  In some embodiments, an advertiser provides a user interface that enables the generation of advertisements and / or selection of items to associate with advertisements and / or one or more service areas that can access the advertisements. Through this, it is possible to generate and manage its own mobile search pay-per-call advertising campaign and bid on the service. Advertiser must have a business name (or trade name), email address (or postal address) / contact address, telephone number (the number the advertiser wants to receive calls on, the ad must be a toll-free number generated by the system And / or enter general business contact information including a description of the advertisement. Additional information, including settings for the time / schedule that the advertiser can call each day (the advertiser can specify the time at which the ad is desired to appear), and features associated with each ad , Upload company logos to appear with ads, and enter coupon information (for example, advertisers can set campaign-specific discounts for users who arrive at specific ads) can do). The advertiser can then enter a keyword (search phrase) (an advertisement will appear in response to this keyword). For keyword entry, manual entry (the advertiser can type / copy keywords manually), use of a keyword suggestion tool / thesaurus (the advertiser can use the estimated monthly search volume and maximum bid) , Synonyms (or synonyms) or related keywords) and / or bulk upload (advertisers can upload keywords in bulk when dealing with a large number of keywords) There are several ways to do this. Advertisers may be users who are in (or reside in) a particular geographic area, those that match a set of demographic user characteristics, and / or users that have a particular type of mobile communication facility 102, etc. Only a subset of users can be selected for advertising. Advertisers can set a specific price that will be charged each time they receive a call through a pay-per-call system. Advertisers can see competitor prices by category in real time (real time) to ensure that their ads appear in the desired location and to maximize their performance. it can.

  In some embodiments, a keyword sales sponsored listing (both pay-per-click and pay-per-call) indicates that the advertisement is related to the business and category selected by the advertiser, and To ensure that the advertisement is determined to be properly relevant by the yield optimization algorithm, it can be subject to administrative and editorial review.

  In some embodiments, pay-per-click and pay-per-call advertisements are “paid” in that the advertiser is only charged for calls made successfully (such as by phone) via the interface of the mobile communication facility 102. It can be priced as “pay for performance”. Advertisers are not charged in the case of repeated calls, short calls (short calls, for example, wrong number calls or other negligent calls) and / or hangups or (line) disconnections It is possible to configure the platform. In addition to uniform per-call billing, an overage charge can be imposed on certain calls (eg, calls that exceed a given time threshold).

  FIG. 12 shows a prediction process associated with misinformation entered in the address bar 174 of the mobile communication facility 102. In this prediction process, the user can enter text (letters, sentences, etc.) 1202 in the address bar 174 of the mobile communication facility (MCF). After entering the text, the user can initiate a search for a URL associated with the text (1204). Following the search request, the mobile communication facility can present (or generate) an associated site (1214), or an error is presented (or generated) if the URL is not found or available ( 1212). When an error is returned, equipment designed to predict the desired site can be utilized. This site prediction facility may reside, for example, in a mobile communication facility, a wireless provider, or other related facility.

  Predictions associated with step 1218 can be made clearer facilities (eg, described herein in connection with FIG. 1), correction facilities (eg, described herein in connection with FIG. 1). Or based on other facilities designed to predict what sites the user intends to visit. For example, the text entered in the address bar 174 did not include “.com”, was mistyped or misspelled, or the correct extension was “.net” Or it may have been correctly associated with the URL unless there was a fact that the text contained incorrect extension information. The prediction facility associated with step 1218 may include (or perform) a process of including or replacing the extension to find the relevant website. Another example of misinformation included in the address bar 174 is that the text has been typed “wwe.” Instead of “www.” Or before the URL, such as a mistype associated with a prefix (prefix). May contain a comma instead of a period). The prediction facility associated with step 1218 may include (or perform) a process of including prefix information or replacing prefix information to find an associated website. Additional examples of misinformation included in the address bar 174 may include a user mis-spelling a URL, entering a shortened URL, or entering a search term instead of a URL. The prediction facility associated with step 1218 may go through (or implement) the process of checking (checking) the spelling of the text and correcting the text with what is recognized as the intended destination site. it can. In the process of predicting and correcting text for text input that gives false indications, the prediction facility can use other techniques to assist the user. These techniques may be better suited to, for example, the techniques described in connection with corrections, unambiguousness (removal of ambiguity) described herein (eg, in connection with FIG. 1), and search queries. There is a technology to assist users in narrowing down.

  Once the site is predicted by step 1218, the predicted site can be entered (1220) and provided (or presented) to the mobile communication facility 102. The process 1218 of predicting the desired site may also include the step of predicting the site and then searching 1224 for the predicted site. If the predicted site does not exist or does not respond, the prediction facility associated with the prediction step 1218 can improve the prediction and search again.

Thus, in displaying the set (one or more) of advertisements 2002 results, omit information and prioritize information based on the presence or absence of mobile communication facility 102 or the characteristics of mobile communication facility 102 (E.g., display sponsored links in preference to all others), highlight a subset (subset) of a set of search results, or rearrange (or determine) the display order of information it can. Examples of representative elements that can be stored in the mobile subscriber characteristics database 112 include search history, parental controls, carrier business rules 130, display resolution, processing speed, audio capabilities, video capabilities, and other technologies. Characteristics are included. For example, the advertisement 2004 can be associated only with a subset of the model of the mobile communication facility 102 that is most suitable for presenting the content of the content 2004 because of the technical requirements for the content to be optimally presented. For example, the advertisement 2004 may have content that requires a Java-enabled device. Therefore, for the advertisement 2004, it may be desirable to present the content only to Java-compatible mobile communication facilities.

  In some embodiments, the compatibility of advertisements and web page content with the type of mobile communication facility 102 is at least in part by tracking the interaction of multiple mobile communication facilities 102 with such content. Can be determined (or can be determined based at least in part on the tracking). Information related to the advertisement and web interaction can be stored in a database, wherein a portion of the information includes an identifier identifying at least one mobile communication facility 102 from a plurality of mobile communication facilities, the information Predicts the suitability between the mobile communication facility 102 and the content based in part on how much content interaction has occurred. The prediction of the compatibility of the mobile communication facility 102 with the content can be based in part on how many interactions have occurred in the user's past. Content can be downloaded, programs, files, executable files, ZIP (compressed) files, compressed files, audio, and video. Advertisements or web interactions can be hyperlink clicks, downloaded content instructions (or downloaded content instructions), and / or downloaded program instructions (or downloaded program instructions).

  In some embodiments, advertising content may be associated with web page content and at least one mobile subscriber characteristic 112 and / or at least one mobile communication facility 102 characteristic.

  In some embodiments, the advertisement 2004 can be associated with at least one web page based at least in part on information related to the mobile communication provider. Information related to mobile telecommunications providers includes graphical trademarks (trademarks), audible signals, voice recordings of people reading the mobile telecommunications provider's slogan trademark, mobile telecommunications providers Video streams such as, but not limited to, unique audio tones or combinations of tones, or audio-visual commercials.

  In some embodiments, past operations or other information regarding the mobile communication facility is stored at a remote server 134 and database 138, wireless provider data facility 124, mobile communication facility, or other similar facility; It can be accumulated and analyzed. Past behavior includes past content interaction, downloaded content, audio content streaming, video content streaming, content contained in Java cookies, content contained in temporary Internet files stored in mobile communication facilities , Past transaction information, etc. (but not limited to).

  In some embodiments, the algorithm facility 144 may execute an algorithm that includes an algorithm for associating information regarding past operation of the mobile communication facility or other information associated with the mobile communication facility. For example, the algorithm facility includes an algorithm for determining the cumulative frequency of a given past operation (eg, downloading an MP3 file) within a single mobile communication facility 102 or within a group of mobile communication facilities. Can do. Content can be classified into categories such as yellow pages, which can be mapped to past operations of the mobile communication facility 102 or group of mobile communication facilities. This classification can then be arranged in descending order of the cumulative rank (cumulative rank) associated with the mobile communication facility or group of mobile communication facilities. For example, when such an algorithm is applied to the past operation of a user's mobile communication facility, MP3: 92, ringtone: 43, online instrument site: 16, newspaper site 2, business weekly magazine: 1 (for example, each number is cumulative) Content classification cumulative frequency rank (eg, representing individual content interactions) (or similar). Based on this data arrangement, it is possible to infer the relevance of content, and as a result, higher priority can be given to content related to music (listening or playing) than content related to news.

  In some embodiments, an algorithm may be correlated to past operations within a single mobile communication facility 102 or group of mobile communication facilities. For example, the algorithm can calculate a correlation coefficient to describe the association between the past operation of downloading an MP3 file using the mobile communication facility 102 and the past operation of purchasing a concert ticket online. This factor can form the basis for the reordering (or arrangement) of content for presentation to the mobile communication facility 102. For example, in the past operation of a single mobile communication facility, or group of such facilities, MP3 file downloads are correlated with online purchases of concert tickets with a positive correlation by a factor of 0.23. However, MP3 file downloads may be found to correlate with a real correlation list with a positive correlation of only 0.04. Using this information, content related to the purchase of concert tickets will be presented more frequently and preferentially than any content related to the real estate list to those who have performed MP3 downloads in the past. Content relevance can be ranked, in which case the content related to the concert ticket purchase is displayed in a higher priority location in the display 172 of the mobile communication facility than any content related to the property listing. Or any content related to the real estate list is excluded and displayed on the display. This information can also be used to predict the validity (or appropriateness) and likelihood of content interaction. For example, a mobile communication facility 102 that has performed many MP3 downloads in the past but has not purchased an online concert ticket can be the first candidate to receive ticket purchase content, and / or The facility 102 can receive ticket purchase content having a high priority with respect to news content and the like.

  In some embodiments, using the types of algorithms described above, information related to mobile communication equipment, capabilities of mobile communication equipment, users related to mobile communication equipment, owners of mobile communication equipment, mobile subscriber characteristics, Content relevance, priority (or priority), positioning, placement (or arrangement) based on carrier information or other information that can be used as a predictor of potential interaction with sponsored content ) Etc. can also be evaluated. Mobile communication facility capabilities may include, but are not limited to, audio capabilities, video capabilities, visual capabilities, processing capabilities, screen capabilities (screen capabilities), and the like. User characteristics may include, but are not limited to, user history information, demographic information, transaction (such as transactions) history, location information, user billing information, personal filters, and the like. Mobile subscriber characteristics include user transaction history, user location, personal information about the user, user web interaction (interaction with the web), e-mail interaction (or e-mail interaction), messaging interaction (or message) Interaction), billing (or billing) history, payment history, typical billing charges, time of day, duration of online interaction (online interaction), number of online interactions, family status, occupation, previous search query, location (Or location) history, phone number, device (or equipment) identifier, previously downloaded content type, previously viewed content, and visited websites, etc. (but not limited to) ) Can be included. Mobile subscriber characteristics can also include demographic information. Demographic information includes age, gender, race, religion, area code, postal code, home address, work address, billing address, credit information, family information, income range, date of birth, The place of birth, employer, job type (or title), working period, organization, etc. (but not limited to) can be included. Mobile service provider (service provider) characteristics may include, but are not limited to, carrier business rules, geographic locations where customers can use mobile service provider services, walled garden content, and the like.

  One aspect of the present invention receives a website request 100 from a mobile carrier gateway 110, receives context information 120 regarding the requested website request 100, associates the received context information 120 with mobile content 130, and includes a mobile communication facility. 150 includes a method for displaying the mobile content 130 along with the website 180.

  The mobile communication facility 150 used to make the website request 100 includes one or more telephones, mobile phones, cellular phones, GSM phones, GPRS phones, WAP compatible phones, satellite phones, WiFi phones, wireless devices, pagers (pockets) Bell), personal portable information equipment, and the like. The website request 100 can be sent through the mobile carrier gateway 110, which then initiates (or issues) a context review request 160 for the requested website 180. The requested website 180 may be one or more of a web page, document, image, video, audio, or some other website. The server 140 can respond to the context review request 160 by accessing the website 180 and performing a context review 170 of the website 180. As a result of the context review 170, context information 120 associated with the website 180 can be identified (or identified). The identified context information 120 can then be sent back to the server 140. The context information 120 includes links, link structures, inbound links to the website, outbound links from the website, reciprocal links, text (characters and sentences), keywords, metadata, website usage, website One or more of usage statistics, etc. may be included. For example, a user of mobile communications facility 150 may have a website that includes Amtrak's timetable (or schedule of operations) from Boston, Massachusetts to New York City, New York. A website request 100 for 180 may be performed. Context information 120 associated with Amtrak timetable websites includes, for example, keywords such as “travel”, “train”, “vacation”, “Boston”, “New York”, and local weather in Boston and New York City. Or an inbound link from a travel agency website. Once identified, one or more context information 120 related to Amtrak's timetable website may be sent back to the server 140.

  Server 140 may receive context information 120 and associate it with mobile content 130. Optionally, the server 140 may store context information 120 associated with a particular website 180 to facilitate the generation of subsequent context review requests 160 from the same or different mobile subscribers. Mobile content 130 can be advertised, sponsored content, sponsored (phone) calls (or sponsored calls), images, videos, text (characters and sentences), search boxes, pay-per-click links, pay-per-call links, Or, it can be associated with one or more of some other mobile content 130. For example, if the contextual information 120 is the keyword “vacation”, the associated mobile content 130 may be included in an airfare meta search engine, a comprehensive resort advertisement in Cancun, or an exotic destination. It can be a search box for surveys (reviews). If the mobile content 130 is a search box, the search box can be associated with a local site search box, an advertisement search box, a carrier portal search box, or some other such search box. For example, the local site search box can query (or query) only the requested website 180, and the carrier portal search box can query a larger set of websites.

  Optionally, the mobile content 130 can be branded using a brand (or trademark) of a wireless carrier (wireless carrier). For example, mobile content 130 utilizes third-party search engine technology, but may include names, logos, trademarks (trademarks), slogans (slogans), graphics (such as diagrams), audio, video, images, or wireless carriers. A search box that includes some other representation of the brand.

  In order to send the associated mobile content 130 to the mobile communication facility 150 along with the requested website, the association between the received context information 120 and the mobile content 130 may be based at least in part on some relationship. . For example, the association can be associated with a mobile subscriber characteristic. For example, if a subscriber who is an elderly citizen requests a website 180 and the contextual information 120 obtained for the website includes the word “vacation”, the associated mobile content 130 is It can be used as an ad for cruising for the elderly, not as an ad for spring breaks.

  The relevance may also be based at least in part on the relationship between the context information 120 and the mobile content 130. For example, this relationship can be a similarity or dissimilarity (or difference) between the context information 120 and the mobile content 130. Mobile content 130 that exhibits greater similarity in context information than other mobile content 130 can be considered more relevant, and therefore, the content that exhibits greater similarity is associated with the mobile communication facility with website 180. The possibility of being displayed at 150 may be higher. In contrast, the mobile content 130 that is not similar to the context information 120 is not considered relevant and can be prioritized for display. For example, the context information 120 may be an outbound link to a bookstore website (eg, Barnes & Noble, Border's). A link to a bookstore can be considered similar to mobile content 130 that includes an Amazon.com search box or an advertisement for a popular author's recent work. A link to a bookstore can be viewed as not resembling mobile content 130 that includes advertisements for flat-screen televisions (or flat-screen televisions).

  The relevance is at least partly related to the stored contextual information 120 and / or the relationship between the mobile content 130 resulting from the previous website request 100 by the mobile subscriber and the mobile content 130 currently pooled. It can also be based. The mobile content 130 that is to be delivered to the mobile communication facility 150 can be identified as having relevance by association with the context information 120 from the previously viewed website 180. For example, even if the current website request 100 is for an international news website, the mobile content 130 to be delivered is based on previously obtained contextual information 120 that included “shopping” and “household goods”. Or a search box for Targe.com.

  Once the mobile content 130 is associated with the received context information 120, the mobile content 130 can be displayed on the mobile communication facility 150 along with the website 180. The mobile content 130 can be displayed with no gaps (eg, while the website is loaded), or with the website 180 (or associated with the website). Optionally, the displayed mobile content 130 can be stored on the server 140.

  In some embodiments of the method, an opt-in function may be provided to an entity associated with the website 180, where the opt-in function registers the website 180 for automatic context syndication. The context information 120 can be provided by the server 140 involved in sending the website 180 to the mobile communication facility 150. Server 140 may be one or more of a WAP server, a mobile application gateway, a WAP gateway, a proxy server, a web server, and the like.

  The server can be used to select mobile content so that the mobile content is relevant to the user for delivering the mobile content. In one example, the user's history may include some or substantially all transactions (such as transactions) initiated by the user from the mobile communication facility 102. In this user history, the user may have expressed a tendency to prefer mobile content related to jazz music, or to interact with the content (such as dialogue). The user may also have executed multiple queries related to jazz music. Accordingly, the distribution of mobile content related to jazz music may be relevant to the user. The server 134 can select and store various mobile content based on such type of relevance, and make the mobile content available to the wireless provider 108 to determine the associated mobile content. Distribution to users can be facilitated.

  The behavior information with which mobile content can be associated to establish relevance can be based on individual users or groups of users. A group of users can be users who share one or more characteristics. This characteristic may be associated with a user (user characteristic), mobile communication facility 102, location (location) of mobile communication facility 102, time of day, or some other characteristic.

  Related mobile content may be advertisements or other types of mobile content such as sponsored content, sponsored (phone) calls (or sponsored calls), search boxes, and the like. The relevant mobile content format may be selected based at least in part on the relevance to the user behavior information. The user may have indicated that he prefers mobile content that includes both audio and video, either explicitly or through certain actions on the mobile communication facility 102. Using this user behavior information, the most relevant mobile content can be selected from similar mobile content and provided to the user.

  As disclosed herein, a method and system for associating mobile content with behavior information associated with a user of mobile communication facility 102 is applied to selecting mobile content in association with a website. You can also.

  In some embodiments, the interaction information about the mobile communication facility can be used to weight the content and the order in which the content is displayed on the mobile communication facility 102 based at least in part on the weighting. Can be decided. For example, interaction information may be based on transaction events, purchase history, user history, user characteristics, user equipment, geographic location (geographic location), time, expertise, occupation, income class, home address, etc. it can. During the week, a user who purchased several books about baseball online, as a result of the week's behavior, conveniently weighted the sports content and placed the content on the user's mobile communication facility 102. Placement can be prioritized. This interaction information is used to weight content for users of other mobile communication facilities that share some attribute or attributes (eg, age, income, etc.) with the user who purchased the baseball book, You can also prioritize content. Once the interaction information is collected, the weight of the mobile content is obtained based on the information on the characteristics of the mobile subscriber, the characteristics of the mobile communication facility, and other information on the user, and the priority of content presentation (or display) is obtained. For this purpose, the interaction information can be stored and analyzed as a whole.

  It is advantageous that sponsors using mobile content to sell their products or services within wireless platform 100 have information about the expected values that can be obtained because they are sponsoring mobile content. May understand. Knowing the expected value for mobile content allows sponsors to select the sponsorship opportunities (sponsorship opportunities, eg, funding opportunities) that are most likely to earn revenue. Expectations can help sponsors make budgets for advertising programs based on the total revenue they expect to earn from advertising programs (or advertising plans; the same applies below). By using evaluation criteria related to behavior such as click-through amount and conversion amount (hereinafter referred to as behavior evaluation criteria), it is possible to predict further consumer (buyer) interaction (interaction) with mobile content. Financial metrics such as product prices, margins, etc. can be used to show financial results (or closings) that associate a given product with behavioral metrics associated with mobile content. Expectation calculations can be beneficial for sponsors such as advertisers, wireless information providers, wireless carriers, wireless operators, telecommunications providers, and the like.

  In some embodiments, the expected value calculation may indicate to the sponsor an expected return that can be expected to be received from a sponsorship (such as funding) such as an advertising program. Such an expected return calculation can be performed by multiplying the click-through parameter associated with the content by the conversion associated with the mobile content by the purchase price of the product that is the subject of the content. In this calculation, the click-through parameter is the cumulative number of times the content has been accessed (ie, “clicked”), or the click-through rate or other associated with the interaction (or interactive usage) with the content. Parameters can be expressed. A conversion can represent the cumulative number of transactions associated with the content, such as purchases, the transaction rate associated with the content (transaction rate), or other parameters associated with the transaction associated with the content. The purchase price can be the manufacturer's suggested retail price, a price explicitly set by the content provider, a price specific to a particular user conversion, or a product price obtained from some other pricing procedure. Expected revenue can also be calculated as revenue weighted by the bid amount, which is the expected revenue multiplied by the bid amount.

  In some embodiments, the expected value calculation may indicate to the sponsor or wireless carrier an expected margin that can be expected to be received from a sponsorship, such as an advertising program. Such an expected margin calculation can be performed by multiplying the click-through associated with the content by the conversion associated with the mobile content by the product margin that is the subject of the content. The margin can include an advertiser's expected margin, a wireless carrier's expected margin, a margin associated with the product, etc. (but is not limited to this). The expected margin can also be calculated as a margin weighted by the bid amount obtained by multiplying the expected margin by the bid amount.

  In some embodiments, the expected value calculation may indicate to the sponsor or wireless carrier an expected yield (or expected revenue, the same applies below) that can be expected to be received from a sponsorship such as an advertising program. Such an expected yield calculation can be performed by multiplying the bid associated with the mobile content by the click-through associated with the content. Similarly, the expected conversion yield can be calculated by multiplying the yield associated with mobile content by the conversion associated with the content.

  In some embodiments, the expected value calculation may include the average time spent on the target website, the average depth of use of the website by users visiting the target website, the sponsor, the wireless carrier, It can be shown to a wireless operator or telecommunications provider.

  In some embodiments, the calculation of expected values associated with mobile content can be divided (or segmented) by characteristics associated with the mobile communication facility. For example, the expected value is divided by characteristics including (but not limited to) display capacity, display size, display resolution, processing speed, audio capacity, video capacity, cache memory size, storage capacity, storage capacity, etc. can do. In some embodiments, the expected value is the age, gender, race, religion, area code, postal code, home address, work address, billing address, credit information, family information, income range, date of birth Can be divided by mobile subscriber characteristics including, but not limited to, place of birth, employer, job title (or title), working period, user history, user transaction, geographic location, time of day, and the like. The divided expected value can provide information on the expected value in a given segment (segment) after the division.

  One example of the many possible examples of how the sponsor can use the expected value is described below. A content sponsor is most likely accessed by a person or entity (such as an entity) who has sufficient interest in the sponsor's product or service (thus causing a conversion (eg, purchase)) You may be looking for sponsored content that you believe. One of the main roles of market research is to gain the power to see the consumer profile most relevant to past conversions, and to know the product of the provider (provider), It is to provide information about other consumer profiles that can represent the undeveloped market share of consumers who may purchase. For example, in traditional media such as television, sponsors can use demographic profiles (or demographic profiles or audience profiles), views, Get (or buy) market research on average viewing time and more. Based on previous market research that the sponsor may have with respect to the sponsor's past buyer (consumer) profile, the sponsor will determine the degree of agreement between the home comedy audience and the sponsor's past buyer. Based on knowledge (and / or experience) about the appropriateness of sponsoring (eg, advertising) content during the home comedy. The higher the degree of matching, the greater the likelihood that a purchase will be made from an advertisement, and the greater the expected value that the company can expect to receive for that advertising cost. In addition, as the specificity (or specificity) in which a consumer's profile can be described increases (eg, “area code = 90210” rather than “California”), the sponsor is more accurate in his intended consumption. It is possible to focus on a person and increase the expected value of the sponsor.

  In response to a mobile content search initiated by a user of the mobile communication facility 102, the mobile content provider determines sponsored content, advertisements, sponsored call numbers based at least in part on relevance to the search query. Or a sponsored billing number (the same applies below), or other sponsored content for the mobile communication facility 102 can be distributed. In addition to selecting among various sponsored advertisements, the mobile content provider can also select sponsored content such as advertisements from various sources or inventory (items) of mobile content. Each source of sponsored content can have its own arrangement of costs, revenue earned, wall garden restrictions, blacklisted content, whitelisted content, and so forth. Accordingly, it is advantageous for a mobile content provider to select mobile content from available mobile content inventory (items) based at least in part on maximizing (or optimizing) the mobile content provider's profits. It can be.

  In some embodiments, a cross inventory yield optimization method can include determining which mobile content inventory (item) provides the largest click-through value. . As an example, the first mobile content inventory (item) has a higher bid rate (or fee) for advertisement impressions (impressions: impressions of advertisements) than the second inventory (item). Thus, by selecting mobile content from the first inventory (item), greater revenue can be obtained when presenting the content to the mobile communication facility.

  Optimizing cross-inventory yield for mobile content can help the content provider generate greater revenue than unoptimized content. The method and system for optimizing the yield of presentation of mobile content to the mobile communication facility 102 can include various factors. One or more of those factors can be evaluated in the context of the optimization objective (such as context or context). For example, one goal of yield optimization may be to generate the highest likelihood of receiving click-through revenue associated with the presentation of mobile content. So, promote content to this purpose, such as click-through rate related to mobile content, revenue generated for each click of mobile content, cost-per-thousand revenue, cost peracquisition, etc. A preference can be selected based at least in part on the factors. In another example, the objective of cross-inventory yield optimization is to preferentially select the mobile content that best fits the mobile communication facility 102 based on criteria such as screen resolution, storage capacity, and video capability. Can do.

  The method for determining which of the multiple content inventory (items) provides the largest value is to compare the impression bid from each inventory (item) provider (inventory (item) provider), It may include selecting the highest bid amount. Alternatively, if an ad with less impression revenue yields more click-through revenue and the click-through rate yields greater revenue, the ad can be selected. In these examples, it can be assessed how the objective of optimization affects which factors associated with the advertisement are favorable.

  Mobile content, such as advertisements, can be selected for different products or services, each of which can be relevant to mobile search. Determining which advertisements can generate the most revenue can include factors associated with the advertisements. Factors can include, but are not limited to, multiple advertisements, click-through rates, and freshness of content and advertisements, or call numbers. As an example, a very popular advertisement associated with the search is less popular than the advertisement because the popular advertisement is viewed, interacted, and more likely to result in click-throughs, etc. It can provide more optimal revenue opportunities than related ads. In another example, an ad with a higher click-through rate has a higher click-through rate than the ad because the advertiser pays a click-through bid for the higher rate (or commission) impression. It can provide more optimal revenue opportunities than low ads. Advertisements, sponsored call numbers, or other latest sponsored content (ie, most recently updated or validated) can also provide greater revenue opportunities. As an example, an advertisement can present an event that has recently changed its venue (or location). Ads that have been updated since the change of venue are likely to provide more click-through revenue than ads that present venues that have become past. Thus, a method for optimizing cross-inventory yield can include assessing ad popularity, click-through rate, or content freshness.

  Optimizing the cross inventory yield can include factors related to the user of the mobile communication facility 102, such as the user characteristics described herein. The user history used in cross inventory yield optimization is illustrated in the following example. The user history may include criteria (or metrics) related to user actions when presented with advertisements, sponsored content, and / or sponsored call numbers. This history may indicate that the user is more likely to interact with the sponsored call number than the sponsored advertisement. Thus, by presenting the sponsored call number to this user, the resulting revenue can be optimized. As a result, the cross inventory yield optimization method can preferentially choose to present this user with a sponsored call number rather than a mobile content item that is not based on the call number.

  The mode in which the user of the mobile communication facility 102 enters a search query may also be considered when optimizing cross inventory yield. Since the mobile communication facility 102 can have multiple distinct input modes (eg, voice, keypad, touch screen, camera, etc.), the selection of mobile content, advertisements, sponsored content, sponsored call numbers can be queried. Optimization can be based at least in part on the mode of input. For example, a user who has issued a search query using keypad input will likely see the facility 102 rather than listening to the mobile communication facility 102. As a result, advertisements with little display content and a significant portion of audio content (sound content) can have a lower yield associated with content compared to more visual (more visible) mobile content. However, voice input of the search query can indicate that the user prefers audio-based mobile content.

  The methods and systems for cross-inventory yield optimization can combine factors to optimize revenue for the presentation of mobile content, advertisements, sponsored content, or sponsored call numbers. Yield optimization includes factors related to users, mobile communications equipment 102, location (location), advertising / content / number, revenue (eg, impression and click-through bids (or bids)), payment period, etc. Can be included. In one example, an English-speaking user may be visiting Paris and entering a search query. Optimization methods include user language preference (English), location (Paris), payment period (payable in USD), reputable (current events in France), revenue (impression bid (or bid price) )) Etc. can be combined. This is only one example, and many other combinations of factors are possible, and they can be used alone or in combination as part of a method and system for cross inventory yield optimization.

  As described above, the wireless search platform 100 can be associated with multiple data sets from which to determine targeted content (eg, advertisements, sponsored content, sponsored call numbers), as well as A consumer profile can be obtained for use in estimating expected values associated with content and content (divided into several categories) divided by information associated with mobile communication facilities. By receiving information about the click-through and conversion volume associated with the content, sponsors will be able to determine the appropriate content they will gain from sponsoring the content based on their product purchase price, margin, etc. Bid prices and possible financial results (or closings). Wireless platform 100 may include information regarding wireless provider 108, mobile communication facility 102, mobile subscriber characteristics 112, location (location) 110, and the like. Thus, sponsors are mobile content that is segmented (segmented) by information related to mobile communication facilities to identify the most profitable (consumer) population (in which the content is sponsored). Thus, the expected value of mobile content that the sponsor wants to become a sponsor (i.e., to fund) can be received.

  For example, a sponsor who specializes in Boston Red Sox merchandise (such as memorabilia) can predict which content and which population of mobile users can be associated with the highest expectations. Expected value data divided (in several sections) by information such as user device characteristics, demographic information, and current location (location) can be used. The goods company has high click-throughs and conversions among “men” whose “earnings exceed $ 100,000” “men” and whose current location is “postal code” in Boston. You may find that there are high expectations for sponsoring content associated with the quantity. This level of expected value segmentation enables the company to identify and sponsor content that is more likely to earn monetary benefits and to benefit the company. Sponsoring content that is not related or not related at all (ie, funding the content) can be minimized.

  In some embodiments, the sponsor provides an opportunity to place a bid to place the content on the display 172 of the mobile communication facility and a user interface based on expected expectations associated with the placement of the content. Can be done. Such bidding can be in the form of an auction, a reverse auction, or a partially randomized auction. Content that is the subject of the bidding process can be advertisements, sponsored links (such as URLs, email addresses, FTP addresses, or phone calls) and advertisements, sponsored calls (or phone calls), audio streams, videos, graphics (graphics). ) Elements, etc. (but not limited to).

  In some embodiments, content that is the subject of a bidding process can be associated with a query page, home page, search page, sponsored link portion of a user interface, or a set of search results or a specific result of a user interface. Can be placed on the page.

  The expected expected value can be determined by the expected value estimation equipment. The expected value estimation equipment includes, for example, a bid amount, a position (location) of a media item in the user interface, a presentation period of the media item in the user interface, and when the media item is arranged in the user interface.

High relevance 2108 can be set, and fine graphic distribution can set high relevance 2108 for users with suitable processing capabilities. In some embodiments, the distribution of content 2110 may be based on the relevance 2108 of the characteristics of the mobile communication device.

  In some embodiments, the relevance 2108 can be obtained in relation to the location data 2120. There are many techniques for determining the position of the mobile communication facility 102, such as GPS, triangulation, and triangulation using Wi-Fi. For example, the location of the mobile communication facility 102 can be determined when the user enters a particular location (or location), which location includes multiple geographic locations such as states (or countries) and cities. The location can be specified according to a distance from the specified location, can be associated with some aspect of the mobile content of the mobile communication facility 102, and can be associated with a previous or current location. it can. For example, if the user of the mobile communication facility 102 is near a clothing shopping street, the relevance 2108 to the content 2110 associated with the clothing may be high. When the user is near a location where car dealers are connected, the relevance 2108 to the car content 2110 can be high. In some embodiments, location data 2120 may be used to improve user relevance 2108 for content 2110 delivered to users of mobile communication facility 102.

  Referring to FIG. 22, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 can enter a search query using one or more keywords. A mobile subscriber characteristics database 112 can be associated with the mobile communication facility 102. There may be subscription data 2214 in or associated with the mobile subscriber database 112 related to subscription content that the user has purchased or has acquired subscription rights. As part of the search results, content including non-subscription content 2200 and subscription content 2202 can be presented on the display 172 of the mobile communication facility. Subscription content can be labeled in some way to distinguish it from non-subscription content. Subscription content presented to the mobile communication facility 102 can be limited to only content 2202 for which the user currently has subscription rights. In an alternative embodiment, the subscription content presented to the user includes subscription content 2202 for which the user currently has subscription rights, as well as other related subscriptions for which the user does not have subscription rights. Subscription content 2204 may be included. Subscription content 2204 for which the user does not have subscription rights can be associated with an offer 2208. The subscription 2208 can further be associated with a link through which the user can obtain a purchase or subscription right. For example, link 2210 can present a user with a subscription order form (subscription order) through which the user can obtain subscription rights. Alternatively, the link 2212 may connect a telephone call from the user's mobile communication facility 102 to a subscription fulfillment center to obtain subscription content 2204.

  In some embodiments, subscription content 2202 includes, but is not limited to, magazine subscriptions, newspaper subscriptions, website content, blogs, or some other type of subscription content. Can do.

  In some embodiments, the subscription content 2202 can include text (characters and documents), images, audio files, videos, RSS feeds, or some other type of subscription content 2202.

  In some embodiments, user subscription data may be associated with a user account, a mobile communication facility, or some other data.

  In some embodiments, subscription content 2202 may be presented to the phone based at least in part on the suitability (or compatibility) for the device characteristics of the mobile communication facility 102. Device characteristics of a mobile communication facility, such as display capability, display size, display resolution, processing speed, audio capability, video capability, cache memory size, storage capability, storage capacity, or some other device of the mobile communication facility It can be a characteristic.

  In some embodiments, the non-subscription content 2200 presented on the phone can be selected based at least in part on the relevance to the mobile subscriber characteristics 112. Mobile subscriber characteristics include age, gender, race, religion, area code, postal code, home address, work address, billing address, credit information, family information, income information, date of birth, place of birth, employment , Job title (or title), working period, or some other mobile subscriber characteristic 112.

  In some embodiments, the non-subscription content 2200 that is presented to the mobile communication facility may be selected based at least in part on the relevance to the user transaction. User transactions can include online product purchases.

  In some embodiments, the non-subscription content 2200 presented on the phone is selected based at least in part on relevance to usage history. The usage history can include a browsing history (browsing history).

  In some embodiments, the non-subscription content 2200 presented on the phone can be selected based at least in part on the relevance to the content that the user subscribes to. This relevance may be based at least in part on contextual information related to content that the user subscribes to. The context information can be a link structure, an inbound link, an outbound link, text, keywords, metadata, or some other type of context information.

  In some embodiments, the user may make a query input 120 for “General Electric” at the user's mobile communication facility 102. This query can be sent to the wireless provider 108 via the wireless communication facility 104. The wireless provider can access the mobile subscriber characteristics database 112 further associated with the subscription data 2224. The subscription data may include information indicating that the user has a subscription right to the Wall Street Journal. As part of returning relevant search results based on the methods and systems described herein, search results may also include both subscription and non-subscription content 2200 from the Wall Street Journal. . Since the user has chosen to subscribe to the subscription content, the subscription content is based on the assumption that it is more relevant to the user than the non-subscription content 2200, and the subscription content is Priority can be given on the display 172 (display on). Continuing with this example, the search query may include related search results, such as subscription content 2204, such as Barron's Magazine content that the user has not subscribed to. In the search results, Baron's magazine can be presented to the user for preview and can be associated with an application 2208 for the user to become a subscriber. This subscription 2208 can be further associated with a link to Baron's subscription order form 2220. Alternatively, the link may initiate a (phone) call 2222 that leads to Baron's subscription fulfillment center. Upon obtaining a subscription right using the mobile communication facility 102, the user can immediately gain access to the subscription content.

  In some embodiments, and with reference to FIG. 23, to assist navigation to specific vertical content and / or to assist in viewing content from a promising answer source. In addition, the method and system of query classification 2304 can be used to identify user intent. In order to understand what the user is searching and what is selected as a result of the search, the user's search behavior can be consistently analyzed and monitored. In some embodiments, the search engine can classify different types of queries to connect the user's search to the right content in the shortest distance. Thus, a search for “ice cream boston” can select local listing results rather than a general web page, and a search for “UA 123” can return flight arrival and departure information. .

  In some embodiments, the search engine uses query classification to identify a user's search intent and specificity (or specificity) to guide the user to the best individual results, or You can prioritize the categories of results that respond to user queries. In some embodiments, both language specific rules (rules) and statistical methods can be used to identify user intent. Language-specific rules can identify refined searches (or narrow searches) and guide users to specific results. For example, if a user is searching for “maps nyc,” the language-specific rules are “maps”, which is an important term, and “nyc”, which is a specific location (or place). And the user can infer that he is looking for a map of New York. In this example, the user can be directed to a New York map provided by a map vertical. A second query classification tool, statistical methods, can rank (or rank) different categories of results for a wider query. For example, if a user is searching for the name of a celebrity, such as the model “Naomi Campbell,” the past action may result in the user seeing an image or new article rather than music. Can be inferred that they are likely to be looking for, so those categories can be returned at the top of the first page result set.

  In some embodiments, the query classification engine heuristic can be tailored on a language-by-language basis or on an operator-wide basis. Query classification 2304 can identify different patterns of search behavior that assist in the proper display of a given query. Classification 2304 can become a finer classification as the system learns more about user actions.

  In some embodiments, the display of the mobile communication facility 102 responds to the user's query, assists the user in removing the ambiguity of the user's query, and guides the user to a deeper nature of the content. And “widgets” may be included to make the most popular and / or most relevant content emerge (bubble up). Widgets can use structured or semi-structured data to help users minimize content searches and to respond directly to user queries. In addition to query classification 2304, the “learning” algorithm uses click and impression analysis 2310 to indicate when to show responses / results, where to show responses / results on the page, and / or a given source From which amount of content should be displayed. While this algorithm can determine the proper set of results, it introduces editing capabilities (or edit overrides) to provide content for queries based at least in part on actively managing / trading query results. It is possible to influence the display of.

  In some embodiments, an editor (editor or editor; the same shall apply hereinafter) can import / export common format supplies and keywords, select display templates, and relevance Weights can be assigned to content component types. For example, the query “music” is so broad that it cannot rely entirely on the algorithm, but instead can request a review on reviews or a business review. Through session and user behavior analysis, editors can identify content that will help narrow the search and get closer to what the user actually intends. If the query is "music", the editor may build a smart component to reveal genre links, navigation links that guide users deeper into music verticals, and video links. it can. If these links don't work, the editor can make adjustments.

  In some embodiments, the popularity management tool may allow an editor to check algorithm weights and adjust thresholds for smart components and their associated content.

  In some embodiments, the query classification 2034 method and system may affect the display logic associated with the mobile communication facility 102 (display logic). In one example, search queries can be classified according to a query classification scheme. The query classification methods are: Vertical Class 2312, Navigation Class 2314, Definition Class 2318, Category Class 2320, Specific Class 2322, Query + Modifier Class (Query + Modifier Class) 2324, Reference Class (ReferenceClass) 2328, Adult Class (Adult Class) 2330, or some other query class (but not limited to).

  In some embodiments, the vertical class 2312 can include a search vertical. Search verticals can be associated with content taxonomy, can be general searches, or search, ringtones, images, games, yellow pages, climate (weather), white pages, news headlines, WAP site, website, movie start time, sports score, stock price, flight departure time, map, direction (or directions), price comparison, Wi-Fi hotspot, luggage tracking, hotel fee, fantasy sports Can be associated with grades (or statistics), horoscopes, answers, dictionaries, area codes, postal codes, entertainment, blogs, or some other search vertical.

  In some embodiments, the navigation class 2314 may be an identified domain name, URL, website, IP address, or some other navigational location.

  In some embodiments, the definition class 2318 may be associated with a query that includes the terms “define”, “definition”, “meaning”, “means”, or some other term associated with a request for a definition. it can.

  In some embodiments, the category class 2320 can be associated with a deeper classification (eg, hip hop, NFL, soccer, camera) that is in the search query, allowing the user to remove query ambiguity. Can contain bubble-up content / topics that can help.

  In some embodiments, the specificity class 2322 may be classified into various categories that can indicate the user's intention (eg, Shooter, Hinder, Sagittarius, Smallville, Nikon coolpix). ), Or a list of extracted data.

  In some embodiments, the query + qualifier class 2324 can be a combination of subcategories, genres, and / or specific sources.

  In some embodiments, reference class 2328 may be data extracted from a reference source, such as an online encyclopedia.

  In some embodiments, adult class 2330 may be associated with adult content, such as a game, gambling, pornography, lottery, or some other form of adult content (adult content).

  In some embodiments, query classification 2304 can be associated with indicator input 2302. Indicator input 2302 may include current content popularity, current query popularity, currently appearing (or emerging) query, current location, previous location, user characteristics, editing activity, or mobile communication facility, It may include a user of the facility and / or some other indicator related to the query content.

  In some embodiments, the query classification 2304 associated with the search query 142 and / or indicator input 2302 can affect the formatting (or formatting) 2308 of the results displayed on the mobile communication facility 102. For example, the formatting 2308 can expand the category results, which can be expanded according to indicator inputs (eg, by descending popularity), by category, or according to some other schema (or scheme). Can be ordered (or ordered).

  In some embodiments, user actions related to formatting the results displayed on the mobile communication facility 102 (eg, clicks on content) can be subjected to click and impression analysis 2310 and / or query classification 2304 and / or Indicator input 2302 can be used to further refine, structure, index, and / or order (or order).

  In some embodiments, by associating the query 142 with the indicator input 2302 and / or the query classification 2304, based at least in part on user interaction with the content and the history of interaction with other users. The optimal ranking (or rating) of content can be determined for display on the user's mobile communication facility 102. For example, it is possible to determine a threshold (eg, popularity rank) for presenting content to the mobile communication facility 102, to determine which content type to expand, etc.

  With continued reference to FIG. 23, in some embodiments, a search query 142 can be received from a mobile communication facility and an indicator input 2302 that can enable generation of a query classification 2304 and the mobile communication facility The result formatting 2308 displayed at 102 can be combined. Further, click and impression analysis 2310 can be provided to feed back user interaction with the mobile communication facility 102 to the process of query classification 2304 in subsequent searches. For example, suppose a user enters a search query “bombing” into the user's mobile communication facility 102. In this case, the search facility 142 can send this search query to the query classification 2304. Further, the query classification 2304 can take into account the indicator input 2302 during classification, and in the present example, the word “bombing” can be the currently occurring query, which is probably this morning. Refers to the bombing in Iraq and the bombing in the Philippines last night. In view of the general nature of the query, in this example, the query can be classified as one of the verticals 2312. However, because the term “bombing” is topical and the number of user queries can increase, the final formatting provided to the user's mobile communication facility 102 is listed first by Iraqi bombings. , Philippine bombings can be listed next, and other relevant search results listed afterwards. In some embodiments, this can be the end of the search, and the user can select one of the presented choices.

  Continuing the example above, alternatively, after the results are presented, the user can search for the string “high school bombing” without selecting one of the presented options. You can type in. Click and impression analysis shows that previous search results likely did not match the user's first search string well, and the addition of “high school” It can be determined that the bombing indicates that the user was not a search target. Then, in order to reflect the added search character string, the indicator input 2302 can be modified, or the importance of the indicator input can be reduced, or the indicator input can be changed. However, this time, the user's search string is much more specific than the last time (perhaps the query characteristic 2304 has been changed to the category class 2320 and the user characteristic indicator input 142 indicating that the user is a US citizen. This time, select the results related to the US high school bombing. In this embodiment, the use of indicator input 2302 and query classification 2304 and final formatting 2308 in narrowing search query 142 results can provide more effective search results for the user's mobile communication facility 102. . Also, by adding feedback for click and impression analysis 2310, improved results can be provided in response to user input after the results are presented.

  In some embodiments, the indicator input 2302 may be content popularity, query popularity, current location of the mobile communication facility 102, previous location of the mobile communication facility 102, user characteristics, editing work product, by wireless provider. Data provided, transaction history provided by the wireless provider, provided by data of the mobile communication facility 102 (or transaction history provided by data of the mobile communication facility 102), location on the mobile communication facility 102, A history of locations on the mobile communication facility 102 can be included. Indicator input 2302 can provide results that are more likely to statistically match search query 142 as a result of taking into account some factor. For example, the current popularity of the content subject in a search reference to “American Idol” may point to a television program called American Idol, rather than a more general search for idols in current US culture. Is expensive. Thus, when this indicator input 2302 is provided to the query classification 2304, it may be more likely to result in the choice that the user is searching for. In another example, search results for the search term “fashion cloths” that users have in mind that they have the user characteristics that indicate that they are attending university are retired (or retired). Can be very different from the search results for the current user. In this example, query classification can result in different subcategories of current fashion depending on the age of the user. In some embodiments, indicator input 2302 can be used to provide improved relevance to search results from mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, the classification can be based at least in part on a search vertical, such as a general search, or a ringtone, image, game, yellow page, climate (weather), white page, news page Headline, WAP site, website, movie start time, sports score, stock price, flight departure time, map, direction (or instructions), price comparison, Wi-Fi hotspot, package tracking, hotel fee, Can be associated with some other general category such as fantasy sports performance (or statistics), horoscope, answer, dictionary, area code, zip code, entertainment, blog, etc. Classification can be based at least in part on domain names, keywords, categories, structured data lists, query modifiers, subcategories, reference sources, adult classifications, and the like. By using the query classification 2304, the scope of the search query can be narrowed down to a more limited set of possibilities. For example, a search that begins with the word "define", such as "define queen", will result in the user searching for the word queen, not the Queen of England or the rock band Queen It's likely that you're just looking for a definition. Instead of typing the word “define”, the user can type “QueenRock”, which represents a query classification 2304 that includes a query + qualifier. Yes, the word “Queen” is the main query, and the word “rock” modifies the main search query in some way (in this example, to indicate rock music). In some embodiments, by using query classification 2304, the number of possibilities can be limited to a more manageable number so that the final result may match the user's search intent. Can be increased.

  In some embodiments, formatting is performed by, for example, age, gender, race, religion, area code, postal code, home address, work address, billing address, credit information, family information, income information, date of birth. Including grouping the results based at least in part on the association with the mobile subscriber characteristics 112, selected from the group consisting of day, place of birth, employer, job title (or title), working period, etc. it can. In some embodiments, formatting includes grouping results based at least in part on user transactions, associations with usage history, usage history including previous historical activity of the user (historical behavior), etc. Can do. By using the mobile subscriber characteristics 112 in formatting the final result, the user can be provided with classified (or grouped) results that better match the user's search, It can be particularly useful with respect to displaying search results in a limited display space that the mobile communication facility 102 can use. For example, an elderly user wants to reach a club related to an elderly patron without spending time scrolling through the first many search results for a club in New York City related to a group of students. In other examples, the user may be a pizzeria near the user's home address, a travel plan within the user's income range, a horoscope for the user's birthday, a listed job title (or title) or You may only be interested in job searches based on industry. Formatting can also be associated with a user's usage history, such as a user selecting a jazz club rather than just a club, in which case a given past search input is an indication of where the search results focused. be able to. In some embodiments, formatting based on mobile subscriber information can facilitate placing related results near the top of the search results, thereby providing a list of results displayed on the mobile communication facility 102. The time associated with the inspection can be reduced.

  In some embodiments, formatting can include an association (or association) with a location. There are several techniques for determining the location of the mobile communication facility 102, such as GPS, triangulation, and triangulation using Wi-Fi. The location of the mobile communication facility 102 can be determined when a user enters a particular location, and the location of the facility 102 can include multiple geographic regions such as states (or countries) and cities. The location of the facility 102 can be specified according to the distance from the specified location, can be associated with some aspect of the mobile content of the mobile communication facility 102, and so on. For example, the search string “sports tickets” may be typed in by a person living in Boston, so that the person will be named Red Sox, Patriots, and You may be interested in tickets for other local teams. Alternatively, the user may be away from home, so that the user may be interested in a team ticket associated with the user's current location. In this case, the current location of the user can be determined by, for example, the GPS-compatible mobile communication facility 102. Other examples of formatting depending on location may include locations associated with restaurants, travel tickets, entertainment, florists, colleges, home renovations (or renovations), and the like. In some embodiments, the formatting of the final result presented to the user's mobile communication facility 102 can be determined at least by location, which can provide the user with an improved list of search results. .

  In some embodiments, formatting 2308 may include expanded category results, results ordered by indicators, results ordered by categories, results that are at least partially ordered by the capabilities of mobile communication facility 102. it can. In this case, the capability of the mobile communication facility 102 can be an audio capability, a visual capability (or visual capability), a processing capability, a screen (screen) capability, etc., and the mobile communication facility can be a telephone, a mobile phone, a cellular phone, etc. , GSM phone, etc. The search result formatting 2308 can be provided in a manner that better fits the inherent limitations of the mobile communication facility 102, rather than a standard size desktop or laptop computer. For example, the area and resolution that the screen size of the mobile communication facility 102 can provide may be much smaller than what a desktop or laptop computer provides. With this in mind, the presented result formatting 2308 can take into account limitations such as screen size, screen resolution, download speed, color vs. black and white. In some embodiments, a small screen associated with an inexpensive mobile phone visually presents search results, as opposed to a larger size and higher resolution color screen available on some PDAs. It may be necessary to take a more modest approach. In some embodiments, taking into account limitations on the user's mobile communication facility 102 capabilities may provide a more user-friendly interface for the display of search results.

  In some embodiments, some aspects of the search process may utilize data from the mobile communication facility 102, such as indicator input 2302 and formatting 2308. For example, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 is not in his / her home but in another state, but the user is in the area of the area code where he / she calls regularly. In addition, the user has a call history and browsing history to the hardware store and home renovation website for the past week before going on a trip. The user then enters the search string “plaster cracks” on the current Saturday morning. In this case, along with the search query 142, an indicator input 2302 relating to the user's usage history and current location can be provided to the query classification 2304. This usage history indicates that the user may have recently thought about home renovation and that the hardware store expects to purchase materials (or tools) related to home renovation by calling the hardware store. It may indicate that Therefore, the indicator input can be made higher (or in line with) the needs of home renovation. In addition, the indicator input now indicates the user's current location, so any query response may have had an increased relevance to the user's current location. Combining the search terms plaster (repair or plaster) and cracks with an indicator input for home remodeling, yielding a sub-category of query classification, plaster repair, of the general categories of home renovation Can do. Responses can be generated for advice on plaster repairs, local home renovation stores, shows (or exhibitions), videos, etc. on plaster repairs. In formatting the results for presentation to the user, the user has called Lowes many times but has mostly called Home Depot or a local hardware store. It can be seen further from the usage history that there is no. As a result of this preference, the local Lowes phone number is placed at the top of the response list displayed on the mobile communication facility 102, and hits related to other plaster repairs are subsequently placed. In some embodiments, this can be the end of the search, and the user can select one of the presented options.

  Continuing the example above, alternatively, after the results have been presented, the user can select “plaster this old house” without first selecting one of the options. You can type in the search string " In this case, click and impression analysis 2310 can be fed back into the query classification, and a plaster from the show “This Old House” with an indicator input for the show “This Old House”. The location of the response to the web link to the repair (the response could previously have been placed far below the response list for the user for the convenience of scrolling at the user's mobile communication facility 102) Higher). Once the website is in the upper position, the user can select the link to finish the search. In some embodiments, using the usage history can continually improve the source and formatting 2308 of the indicator input 2302 so that the user finds a match that matches the user's search task faster. It becomes possible.

  In some embodiments, business rules can be associated with a query classification engine. Business rules include popularity rules, location rules, mobile communication facility type rules, keyword matching rules, parental control rules, spelling and spelling correction rules, recommendations (or recommendations) rules, and user characteristics. Rules, or some other business rule can be included.

  Referring to FIG. 24, in some embodiments, the mobile-specific content 2410 and the transcoded (or converted) web page content 2408 are mixed at least partially based on the content integration facility 2412 and mixed content repository. 2414 can be mixed. In some embodiments, non-mobile content 2402 can be transcoded (or converted) using transcoding facility 2404. In some embodiments, content (2408, 2410) can be mixed using an algorithm. In some embodiments, the content (2408, 2410) may be mixed using a combination of algorithms and inspection checks.

Wireless carrier data may include, but are not limited to, content relationships regarding user session progress, new website content discovery, access statistics, usage statistics, or some other wireless carrier data.

  In some embodiments, the mixed content is a mixed content repository based on mobile subscriber characteristics, user transactions, usage history, relevance to location (or location), contextual information, or some other relevance. 2414 can be selected. Relevance can be a score. The usage history can be a browsing history (such as a web page), an ad conversion history, or some other type of usage history.

  In one example, for a Type 1 mobile communication facility, how well each content is displayed on a Type 1 mobile communication facility for all content in the mixed content repository 2414 or a subset of the content. Ranking (or classification) according to relevance based at least in part on (or presented). In some embodiments, content presented to a Type 1 mobile communication facility may be selected based at least in part on matching or exceeding the relevance rank. In some embodiments, the content presented to the mobile communication facility is presented according to a relevance rank (eg, presenting the most relevant content first and in the most prominent position) or some other priority Can be ordered based on the display.

  In some embodiments, “targeted transcoding” can be used to provide the most appropriate result for the capabilities of a given handset (telephone or handset). Targeted transcoding can identify high quality websites without including the presence of a mobile (such as a mobile phone) in the mobile search index (or mobile search index) and is inspected for editing / Provide high quality transcoded versions of those websites. These transcoded sites can be identified in the search index. In some embodiments, transcoded sites can be standardized (or normalized) and mixed based on relevance to results suitable for existing mobiles (such as mobile phones). In some embodiments, the transcoded site can be identified to the user as “transcoded results” on the search engine results page. In some embodiments, transcoded sites can be completely excluded from results for devices that do not support the display of transcoded pages.

  In some embodiments, general transcoding can be used to present results to a user assisted by a general web search backfill. Present these results as an alternative result category, or as the first result (or primary result) when there is no relevant mobile-targeted result or targeted transcoding result can do. In some embodiments, these general web search results can be excluded from any set of search results as desired.

  Referring to FIG. 25, in some embodiments, a user may enter a website request associated with a website that includes non-mobile website content 2502 into the user's mobile communication facility 102, As a result, the website may not receive acceptable interactive (or interactive or interactive) performance. That is, the user of the mobile communication facility 102 may interact with the mobile communication facility 102 due to some limiting factor associated with the mobile communication facility 102, such as display (or display) constraints, speed constraints, keyword constraints, and the like. A web address associated with content that is not optimized for operation may be specified. In some embodiments, there may be an alternative web address that is exclusively configured to provide the same information, but that address is better suited to mobile website content 2502 due to the limiting factors of the mobile communication facility 102. And may have been generated to include only mobile website content 2502 so that it can be done and to provide acceptable higher interactivity performance.

  In some embodiments, a user of a mobile communication facility 102 attempting to access content using a non-mobile website content 2504 site may be used to provide the mobile website content with which the non-mobile website content 2504 site has a relationship. To 2502 sites. In one example, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 can submit a query for the non-mobile website www.espn.com. This website can be associated with a corresponding mobile website content 2502 site (eg, mobile.espn.go.com). The provider can send the content for presentation to the user's mobile communication facility 102 from a mobile site rather than a less powerful non-mobile content site.

  The association between separate websites can be based on many factors such as context information and gateway data. In other embodiments, the association may be based on an explicit link structure.

  Referring to FIG. 26, in some embodiments, non-sponsored content 2602 is associated with sponsored content 2608 and combined with the content 2608 and presented to the mobile communication facility 102 as a single content. In this case, the non-sponsored content 2602 can be a game, video, text, etc., and the sponsored content 2608 can be an advertisement, syndicated content, etc. In some embodiments, sponsored content 2608 surrounds non-sponsored content 2602, sponsored content 2608 is placed under non-sponsored content 2602, and sponsored content 2608 is on both sides of non-sponsored content 2602. The non-sponsored content 2602 can be embedded in the sponsored content 2608, such as by placing or placing the sponsored content 2608 over the non-sponsored content 2602. Further, the association between the non-sponsored content 2602 and the sponsored content 2608 can be related to mobile communication facilities such as mobile subscriber characteristics, user transactions, usage history, location (or location), context information associated with the website, etc. Related to the sex 2604.

  In some embodiments, data associated with a user's mobile communication facility 102 includes information that can help determine the relevance 2604, the mobile subscriber characteristics database 112, the usage history database 2618, the location (or location). ) Database 2620, transaction database 2622, website related context information 2624, etc.

  For example, in some embodiments, teenage boys may be talking on the phone or emailing as part of their mobile communication facility 102 activity, Displays an indication (or guidance) that you can play and watch a free video trailer of a new Spiderman movie. In this case, when the user clicks on the link, a Spider-Man video representing the non-sponsored content 2602 can be delivered to the user along with advertisements placed around the video. The advertisement placed around this area represents sponsor-provided content 2608. In some embodiments, both the video and surrounding advertisements may be selected according to the relevance 2604 of the video and the advertisement to teenage boys. The relevance 2604 of the non-sponsored content 2602 and sponsored content 2608 to the user is determined by mobile subscriber characteristics that specify the age of the user, usage history of the mobile communication facility 102 that matches the teen's profile, etc. be able to. The video can be made visible to teenagers when the video is played, such as by embedding the video in a distributed advertisement and placing it next to the advertisement. In some embodiments, playing the video can be free because the teens are forced to view the advertisement when they play the video. In some embodiments, video playback is free because of the fact that teens are willing to download the video, and because the video is free, Due to the fact that it allows existence. In some embodiments, relevance 2604 matching of non-sponsored content 2602 embedded with sponsored content 2608 can provide an effective means of distributing advertisements that are relevant to and acceptable to the user. .

  In some embodiments, relevance 2604 matching is an important aspect in terms of effective distribution of sponsored content 2608 and makes sponsored content 2608 more targeted. Can do. One way to better ensure the relevance 2604 to the user is to utilize the mobile subscriber characteristic data 112 from the user's mobile communication facility 102. In this case, the mobile subscriber characteristic data includes user profile information, demographic information, billing information, and the like. Using such information, it is possible to match 2604 relevance of sponsored content 2608 to the user's personal attributes (or personal attributes) such as the user's age, address, gender and the like. For example, clothing advertisements can be matched (ie, paired with matches) to the user's age, gender, and whether the user lives in an urban or rural area. Advertisements for middle-aged men can target sports, cars, home repairs (or renovations), and the like. Advertising for girls can target clothing and the like. Advertisements for the elderly can target health products and travel. In some embodiments, the information obtained from the mobile subscriber characteristics information can be useful for matching not only the delivered advertisement but also the non-sponsored content 2602. For example, an electronic game that snipes an approaching target with a spacecraft may be non-sponsored content 2602 with relevance 2604 for young viewers, but a mortgage ad with a link to the current interest rate, Other non-sponsored content such as dating ads with links to personal ads, puzzles, crosswords, humorous interactive comics, political messages during elections, and other games more suitable for older viewers 2602 may better match older viewers. In some embodiments, profile data such as age, gender, address, etc. may be sufficient for initial relevance 2604 matching of sponsored content 2608 and non-sponsored content 2602 to a user of mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, relevance 2604 can be obtained from user transaction data 2622 associated with mobile communication facility 102, such as online product purchases, online shopping cart contents, ad conversions, and the like. For example, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 may have just purchased clothing suitable for some women's season. Now, the user may not be interested in purchasing any more seasonal clothing, and as a result of this purchase, the relevance 2604 for seasonal clothing is significantly lower (or smaller). ), But the user is a woman and has not yet purchased any seasonal shoes, and as a result of the purchase, the relevance 2604 to the shoes may be increased (or increased). it can. In another example, a user may be in the process of purchasing a new floor mat for a new car, which may indicate that the user has just purchased a new car. is there. As a result, this can reduce the relevance 2604 to the car advertisement, but can increase the relevance 2604 of the car care product. Further, user transactions can indicate user interest and can provide better relevance 2604 matching of non-sponsored content 2602 to the user. For example, a user can purchase an electronic game online, which indicates that the non-sponsored content 2602 that is the game can match relevance 2604. The user can purchase a ticket, which indicates that the user may wish to play a new game or puzzle on the plane. A user may be in the process of purchasing renovation (or home renovation) material, which may be used by the user to search for a home improvement loan to investigate the possibility of a larger renovation. Indicates that there may be interest in non-sponsored content 2602. In some embodiments, user transactions associated with the mobile communication facility 102 are effectively used in determining the association between sponsored content 2608 and non-sponsored content 2602 for user interaction (interaction). Can do.

  In some embodiments, the relevance 2604 can be obtained from usage history data 2618, wireless carrier data, etc. associated with the mobile communication facility 102, such as browsing history (such as web pages) and advertising conversion history. For example, a user may be in the middle of browsing (such as a web page) about a plasma TV, so that it is relevant to advertisements related to plasma TV and other similar products such as LCD TVs. 2604 can be increased. This increased relevance 2604 may decrease over time at the end of browsing (such as a web page), which may indicate that the user has made subsequent purchases. In another example, a user may be browsing a university campus website, so that the user is advertising a consumer product related to the university, such as a university and a laptop computer. Can be targeted for embedded electronic games or videos. In some embodiments, the usage history can track not only the type of converted ads, but also the advertising conversion history. For example, a user may be converting an ad for a mortgage interest rate so that the user can be targeted for advertising or non-sponsored content 2602 related to the mortgage interest rate. . Radio carrier data can also be tracked, and the data can provide information that results in improved relevance 2604 matching. For example, a user may call many times from a financial district in New York City, resulting in relevance to non-sponsored content 2602 such as financial-related advertisements or syndicated content related to finance. 2604 can be high. In some embodiments, the usage history can be used to improve the relevance 2604 in selecting sponsored content 2608 and non-sponsored content 2602 that are presented to the user of the mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, the relevance 2604 includes the location (or location) history, previous location, current location, location determined according to the location coordinates of a particular mobile communication facility 102, user entered (or From location data 2620 associated with the mobile communication facility 102, such as a location determined by a location (or location) entered, a location as a plurality of geographic regions, a location determined according to a distance from a specified location, etc. Obtainable. For example, if the user of the mobile communication facility 102 is near a clothing shopping street, the relevance 2604 for clothing-related advertisements can be high. If a user is close to a place where car dealerships are linked, then the relevance 2604 for car advertisements can be high, and perhaps also the relevance 2604 for non-sponsored content 2602 related to cars such as car racing games. It will be higher again. In some embodiments, the location can be used to improve the relevance 2604 in selecting sponsored content 2608 and non-sponsored content 2602 that are presented to the user of the mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, the relevance 2604 is associated with a website 2624, such as information in a link structure, information in an inbound link, information in an outbound link, information in a link, text, keywords, metadata, etc. It can be obtained from the context information. For example, a user may be browsing a horticultural (or gardening) website on the user's mobile communication facility 102, and the user selects content related to outdoor planting and garden design. Encounter the scene. In some embodiments, this content may be selected by the user to result in an increased relevance 2604 to outdoor garden supplies, landscapers, outdoor renovations, etc., where the subject of these content Sponsored content 2608 can be associated with interactive elements (or interactive elements) 2602 regarding the content, such as horticultural puzzles, house renovation lending rates, and the like. In another example, a website may have an inbound link or an outbound link that can suggest an association 2604 to a subject (theme), such as a link to a woodworking website. Indicates that the user may be interested in tools and supplies related to making furniture. This can also be an indicator of the user's gender and age. This is because woodworking can generally be a concern for older middle class men. Thus, this can generate age- and gender-suitable non-sponsored content 2602 that is delivered with ads targeted to power tools related to woodworking as a home activity. In some embodiments, context information associated with the website is used to improve the relevance 2604 in selecting unsponsored content 2608 and sponsored content 2602 that is presented to the user of the mobile communication facility 102. be able to.

  In some embodiments, sponsored content 2608, such as advertisements, is animated in video, games, content links to improve the time that sponsored content 2608 appears before the user of mobile communication facility 102. It can be delivered to the user along with non-sponsored content 2602 such as That is, when the game that the user wants to be delivered to the user and an advertisement surrounds the content of the game on the display of the mobile communication facility 102, the effect of the advertisement on the user is enhanced. Furthermore, by increasing the relevance 2604 of the sponsor-provided content 2608 and the non-sponsor-provided content 2602 to the user, the effectiveness of the advertisement can be enhanced. That is, if the presented advertisement has a relevance 2604 to the user, the user is more likely to be affected by the advertisement and the non-sponsored content 2602 has a higher relevance 2604 to the user. The user is more likely to play a video or play a game for a longer time, and therefore more likely to have a longer time for the advertisement to appear in front of the user. This can also increase the effectiveness of the advertisement. In some embodiments, improved relevance 2604 in selecting sponsored content 2608 and non-sponsored content 2602 being presented to a user of mobile communication facility 102 enhances the effectiveness of sponsored content 2608. This can increase the number of sponsors associated with the sponsorship facility 162.

  Referring to FIG. 27, in some embodiments, sponsor 128 bids to distribute exclusive sponsored content 2710 to a user's mobile communication facility 102, such as a telephone, mobile phone, cellular phone, GSM phone, and the like. 2702. Examples of situations suitable for sponsorship models where sponsors 128 are bidding on each other are, for example, car dealers in close proximity, clothing stores in shopping malls, multiple grocery stores in the same town, Borders (Borders) and Barnes & Noble, Lowes and Home Depot, one-on-one competitors, and restaurants near each other. In some embodiments, a direct competitive bidding model for the delivery of exclusive sponsored content 2710 to the user's mobile communication facility 102 is any competing sponsor 128 that targets the same exclusive property 2704 of the user. Can be useful in situations.

  FIG. 27 illustrates a method and system for bidding exclusively on mobile sponsored content. In some embodiments, a bid 2702 can be received for exclusive sponsored content 2710 for presentation to the user's mobile communication facility 102, which can include a bid amount 2708, And at least one exclusive characteristic 2704 for the user from mobile subscriber characteristic database 2714, usage history database 2718, location database 2720, transaction database 2724, mobile communication device characteristic database 2722, and the like. Bid 2702 can be auctioned, open bid, closed bid, etc. Further, the exclusive characteristic 2704 is matched to the exclusive sponsored content 2710 based at least in part on a relevance 2712 such as a score or rating (or popularity) for presentation to the mobile communication facility 102. (Match or pair). For example, Flemington New Jersey's route 202 is Audi, BMW, Buick, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Infiniti. ), 18 new car dealers including Jeep, Lincoln, Mercury, Nissan, Mazda, Pontiac, Porsche, Subaru and Volkswagen All of them are on the same road. This large collection of new car dealers presents a strong competition for prospective customers coming to this area to buy cars. Users know that there are virtually all major cars in the area for sale, but each dealer stocks what each dealer is offering as a sale. You may visit this area with little prior knowledge of what models are currently available for purchase, such as used cars with warranty. This is based on the sponsored content 2710 delivered to the user's mobile communications facility 102 when the user enters the area by car, so that the user gets the buyer's instructions as to where the user will first see. There may be situations where the car dealer sponsor may be willing to bid 2702 for exclusive access to the user's mobile communication facility 102. In this case, the distribution of sponsored content is based at least in part on information about the user's mobile communication facility 10 (eg, mobile subscriber characteristics).

  Continuing the above example, the dealer may be able to focus on certain aspects of the user that make the dealer a more desirable target, and these aspects may be referred to as an exclusive property 2704, and the exclusive sponsored content 2710 The relevance 2712 matching of the user exclusivity property 2704 can better ensure the effect of the exclusive sponsored content 2710 on the user's preferences. For example, many dealers may have a sports car for sale and are willing to bid 2702 for the user's access to the mobile communication facility 102, which means that high-end sports car buyers This example may be particularly useful thanks to a user profile that can be associated with. That is, a high-income male will likely use his mobile communication facility 102 in his decision making. Given this profile, the dealer sponsor 128 may wish to place a bid based on the exclusivity characteristic 2704 (in this case the relevance 2712 of the user's exclusivity characteristic 2704 with a high-end sports car) The exclusivity characteristics include a mobile subscriber characteristic 2714 that indicates that the user is older than a predetermined age, a usage history 2718 that indicates that the user has viewed a sports car website (or web page), A location (or location) 2720 close to the dealer, a mobile communication device characteristic 2722 indicating that the user has a mobile communication facility with a large high-resolution display, that the user has significantly increased their spending profile The user transaction 2724 shown. In some embodiments, dealer sponsor 128 may bid to combine bid amount 2708, exclusivity characteristics 2704, and relevance 2712 in multiple ways to increase sales of cars resulting from the distribution of exclusive sponsored content 2710. 2702 can be performed.

  In some embodiments, this is an important aspect in terms of effective distribution of exclusive sponsored content 2710 and may be more targeted to the audience intended for exclusive sponsored content 2710. One way to better ensure the relevance 2712 to the user is to obtain mobile subscriber characteristic data 2714 associated with the user's mobile communication facility 102, including user profile information, demographic information, billing information, and the like. It is to use. Using such information, it is possible to match 2604 relevance of exclusive sponsored content 2710 to a user's personal attributes (or personal attributes) such as the user's age, address, gender, and the like. For example, clothing advertisements can be matched (ie, paired with matches) to the user's age, gender, and whether the user lives in an urban or rural area. Advertisements for middle-aged men can target sports, cars, home repairs (or renovations), and the like. Advertising for girls can target clothing and the like. Advertisements for the elderly can target health products and travel. In some embodiments, the information obtained in connection with mobile subscriber characteristics information 2714 is useful for matching exclusive sponsored content 2704 to the user. In some embodiments, profile data such as age, gender, address, etc. may be sufficient for initial user relevance 2712 matching of exclusive sponsored content 2710.

  In some embodiments, relevance 2712 can be obtained from user transaction data 2724 associated with mobile communication facility 102, such as online product purchases, online shopping cart contents, ad conversions, and the like. For example, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 may have just purchased clothing suitable for some women's season. Now, the user may not be interested in purchasing any more seasonal clothing, and as a result of this purchase, the relevance 2712 for seasonal clothing is significantly lower (or smaller). ), But the user is a woman and has not yet purchased any seasonal shoes, and as a result of the purchase, the relevance 2712 to the shoes may be increased (or increased). it can. In another example, a user may be in the process of purchasing a new floor mat for a new car, which may indicate that the user has just purchased a new car. is there. As a result, this can reduce the relevance 2712 to the car advertisement, but can increase the relevance 2712 of the car care product. Further, user transaction 2724 can indicate a user's interests and can provide better relevance 2712 matching of exclusive sponsored content 2710 to the user. In some embodiments, user transaction 2724 associated with mobile communication facility 102 can be effectively used in determining user relevance 2712 for exclusive sponsored content 2710.

  In some embodiments, the relevance 2712 can be obtained from usage history data 2718, wireless carrier data, etc. associated with the mobile communication facility 102, such as browsing history (such as web pages) and advertising conversion history. For example, a user may be in the middle of browsing (such as a web page) about a plasma TV, and as a result, advertisements related to plasma TV, as well as relevance to other similar products such as LCD TVs. 2712 can be increased. The relevance 2712 thus increased may decrease over time after browsing (such as a web page), which may indicate that the user has subsequently made a purchase. In another example, a user may be in the middle of browsing a college campus website so that the user is associated with a consumer product related to a college, such as a college or laptop computer. Can be targeted by exclusive sponsored content 2710. In some embodiments, usage history 2718 may track ad conversion history as well as the type of converted ads. For example, a user may be converting an advertisement for a mortgage interest rate so that the user can be targeted for exclusive sponsored content 2710 related to the mortgage interest rate. Radio carrier data can also be tracked, and the data can provide information that results in improved relevance 2712 matching. For example, a user may make many calls from a financial district in New York City, and as a result, the relevance 2712 for financial related advertisements and the like may be high. In some embodiments, usage history 2718 can be used to improve user relevance 2112 in selecting exclusive sponsored content 2710.

  In some embodiments, the relevance 2712 can be obtained from mobile communication device characteristic data 2722 such as display characteristics, computational characteristics (or computer characteristics), band characteristics, keypad characteristics, and the like. For example, a colorful cut flower florist sponsor 128 can set a high relevance 2712 for a user with a high-end color display, while a sponsor 128 delivering interactive content is expensive for a user with a given keyboard. A relevance 2712 can be set, and a sponsor 128 that delivers fine graphics can set a high relevance 2712 for users with suitable processing capabilities. In some embodiments, bids for items of exclusive sponsored content 2710 can be increased based on relevance 2712 of mobile communication device characteristics 2722.

  In some embodiments, relevance can be obtained in relation to location data 2720. There are many techniques for determining the position of the mobile communication facility 102, such as GPS, triangulation, and triangulation using Wi-Fi. For example, the location of the mobile communication facility 102 can be determined when the user enters a particular location (or location), which location includes multiple geographic locations such as states (or countries) and cities. The location can be specified according to a distance from the specified location, can be associated with some aspect of the mobile content of the mobile communication facility 102, and can be associated with a previous or current location. it can. For example, if the user of the mobile communication facility 102 is near a clothing shopping street, the relevance 2712 to the advertising associated with the clothing may be high. When a user is close to a place where car dealers line up, the relevance 2712 to car advertisements can be high. In some embodiments, location data 2720 may be used to improve user relevance 2712 for sponsored content.

  Referring to FIG. 28, in some embodiments, an interactive element 2802 can be associated with sponsored content 2808 and presented to the mobile communication facility 102, where the interactive element 2802 is It can be a game, a search facility (or search function), a text box, etc., and the sponsor-provided content 2802 can be an advertisement. In this case, the user can engage with an interactive element 2802 on the mobile communication facility 102, where the interactive element 2802 can be presented in sponsored content 2808. In addition, the presentation of sponsored content 2808 may be communicated to the relevance 2804 of the mobile communication facility 102 based on information such as mobile subscriber characteristics, user transactions, usage history, location (or location), and contextual information associated with the website. Can be associated. For example, teenage boys may be talking on the phone as part of their mobile communications facility 102 or in the middle of emailing as part of it, An instruction that you can do is displayed. In this case, the user can click on the link, which will deliver the game to them with advertisements related to teenage boys. The relevance 2804 of the advertisement to the user can be determined by mobile subscriber characteristics that indicate the user's age, usage history of the mobile communication facility 102 that matches the teenage male profile, and the like. When the game is played, such as by embedding a distributed game in the advertisement and placing it next to the advertisement, the advertisement can be clearly seen by teenagers. In some embodiments, the game can be free to play because the teens are forced to view the advertisement when they play the game. In some embodiments, the game is free to play because of the fact that teens are willing to download the game, and because the game is free, the teens Due to the fact that allows the presence of advertising. In some embodiments, relevance 2804 matching of sponsored content 2808 embedded with interactive element 2802 can provide an effective means of distributing advertisements that are relevant to and acceptable to the user.

  In some embodiments, data associated with a user's mobile communication facility 102 may be useful in determining relevance 2804, such as mobile subscriber characteristics database 112, usage history database 2818, location database 2820, transaction database 2822, Information such as contextual information related to the website 2824 can be provided.

  In some embodiments, relevance 2804 matching is an important aspect in terms of effective delivery of sponsored content 2808 and makes sponsored content 2808 more targeted. Can do. One way to better ensure the relevance 2804 for the user is to utilize mobile subscriber characteristic data 112 from the user's mobile communication facility 102. In this case, the mobile subscriber characteristic data includes user profile information, demographic information, billing information, and the like. By using such information, it is possible to match 2804 relevance of sponsored content to the user's personal attributes (or personal attributes) such as the user's age, address, and gender. For example, clothing advertisements can be matched (ie, paired with matches) to the user's age, gender, and whether the user lives in an urban or rural area. Advertisements for middle-aged men can target sports, cars, home repairs (or renovations), and the like. Advertising for girls can target clothing and the like. Advertisements for the elderly can target health products and travel. In some embodiments, information derived from mobile subscriber characteristics information can be useful for matching not only the delivered advertisements but also interactive elements. For example, an electronic game that snips an approaching target with a spacecraft can be an interactive element 2802 with relevance 2804 for younger viewers, but a mortgage ad with a link to the current interest rate, an individual Other interactive elements 2802 such as companion ads with links to ads, puzzles, crosswords, humorous interactive comics, political messages during elections, other games more suitable for older viewers, May better match older viewers. In some embodiments, profile data such as age, gender, address, etc. may be sufficient for initial relevance 2804 matching of sponsored content 2608 and interactive element 2802 to a user of mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, relevance 2804 may be obtained from user transaction data 2822 associated with mobile communication facility 102, such as online product purchases, online shopping cart contents, ad conversions, and the like. For example, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 may have just purchased clothing suitable for some women's season. Now, the user may not be interested in purchasing any more seasonal clothing, and as a result of this purchase the relevance 2804 for seasonal clothing is significantly lower (or smaller). ), But the user is a woman and has not yet purchased any seasonal shoes, and as a result of the purchase, the relevance 2804 for the shoes may be increased (or increased). it can. In another example, a user may be in the process of purchasing a new floor mat for a new car, which may indicate that the user has just purchased a new car. is there. As a result, this can reduce the relevance 2804 to the car advertisement, but can increase the relevance 2804 of the car care product. Further, user transactions can indicate user interest and can provide better relevance 2804 matching of interactive elements 2802 to the user. For example, a user can purchase an electronic game online, which indicates that an interactive element 2802 that is a game can match 2804 relevance. The user can purchase an airline ticket, which indicates that the user may wish to play a new game or puzzle on the plane. A user may be in the process of purchasing renovation (or home renovation) material, which can be used by the user to further investigate the possibility of a larger remodeling loan. Indicates that you may be interested in the interactive element 2802. In some embodiments, user transactions associated with the mobile communication facility 102 can be effectively used in determining the association 2804 between the sponsored content 2808 and the interactive element 2802 with respect to user interaction (user interaction). Can be used.

  In some embodiments, the relevance 2804 may be obtained from usage history data 2818, wireless carrier data, etc. associated with the mobile communication facility 102, such as browsing history (such as web pages) and advertising conversion history. For example, a user may be in the middle of browsing (such as a web page) about a plasma TV, so that it is relevant to advertisements related to plasma TV and other similar products such as LCD TVs. 2804 can be increased. This increased relevance 2804 may decrease over time after browsing (such as a web page), which may indicate that the user has made a subsequent purchase. In another example, a user may be browsing a university campus website, so that the user is advertising a consumer product related to the university, such as a university and a laptop computer. Can be targeted in embedded electronic games. In some embodiments, the usage history can track not only the type of converted ads, but also the advertising conversion history. For example, a user may be converting an advertisement for a mortgage interest rate so that the user can be targeted by an advertisement or interactive element 2802 related to the mortgage interest rate. Radio carrier data can also be tracked, and the data can provide information that leads to increased relevance 2804 matching. For example, a user may call many times from a financial district in New York City, resulting in a high relevance 2804 for interactive elements 2802 such as financial-related advertisements and fast-action electronic games. sell. In some embodiments, the usage history can be used to improve the association 2804 in selecting interactive content 2802 with sponsored content 2808 being presented to the user of the mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, the relevance 2804 is entered (or entered) by a location (or location) history, previous location, current location, location determined according to location coordinates of a particular mobile communication facility, and user input. Obtained from location data 2820 associated with the mobile communication facility 102, such as a location determined by location (or location), a location as multiple geographic regions, a location determined according to a distance from a specified location, etc. be able to. For example, if the user of the mobile communication facility 102 is near a clothing shopping street, the relevance 2804 for clothing-related advertisements can be high. If the user is close to a series of car dealerships, the relevance 2804 for car advertisements can be high, and possibly also the relevance 2804 for interactive elements related to cars such as car racing games. It will be. In some embodiments, the location can be used to improve the association 2804 in selecting interactive content 2802 with sponsored content 2808 being presented to the user of the mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, the relevance 2804 can be obtained from contextual information associated with the website 2824, such as link structure, inbound links, outbound links, links, text, keywords, metadata, and the like. For example, a user may be browsing a horticultural (or gardening) website on the user's mobile communication facility 102, and the user selects content related to outdoor planting and garden design. Encounter the scene. In some embodiments, the user's selection of this content can result in an increase in relevance 2804 to outdoor garden supplies, landscapers, outdoor renovations, etc., where the subject of these content Sponsored content 2808 for can be accompanied by interactive elements 2802 for content details, such as horticultural puzzles, home renovation lending rates, and the like. In another example, a website may have an inbound link or an outbound link that can suggest a relevance 2804 to a subject (theme), such as a link to a woodworking website. Indicates that the user may be interested in tools and supplies related to making furniture. This can also be an indicator of the user's gender and age. This is because woodworking can generally be a concern for older middle class men. Thus, this can create an age- and gender-friendly interactive element 2802 that is delivered with ads targeted to power tools related to woodworking as a home activity. In some embodiments, the context information associated with the website is used to improve the association 2804 in selecting the sponsored content 2808 and interactive element 2802 that is presented to the user of the mobile communication facility 102. Can do.

  In some embodiments, in order to improve the time that sponsored content 2808 appears in front of a user of mobile communication facility 102, sponsored content 2808, such as an advertisement, is converted to an animated set of games or content links. Can be delivered to the user along with an interactive element 2802. That is, when a game that the user wants to be distributed to the user and a certain advertisement is seen with the game on the display of the mobile communication facility 102, the effect of the advertisement on the user is enhanced. Further, the effectiveness of the advertisement can be enhanced by increasing the relevance 2804 of the sponsored content 2808 and the interactive element 2802 to the user. That is, if the presented advertisement has a relevance 2804 to the user, the user is more likely to be affected by the advertisement and the interactive element 2802 has a higher relevance 2804 to the user. If so, the user is more likely to play the game for a longer period of time, and therefore more likely to have a longer time for the advertisement to appear in front of the user. Increase the effectiveness of advertising. In some embodiments, improved relevance 2804 in selecting interactive content 2802 with sponsored content 2608 being presented to a user of mobile communication facility 102 may enhance the effectiveness of sponsored content 2808. This can, however, increase the number of sponsors associated with the sponsorship facility 162.

  Referring to FIG. 29, in some embodiments, a query classification can be associated with an indicator input 2902. Indicator input 2902 includes current content popularity (current content popularity), current query popularity (current query popularity), currently appearing (or emerging) queries, current location, previous Locations, user characteristics, editing operations, or mobile communication facilities, users of the facilities, and / or some other indicator related to query content may be included.

  In some embodiments, the query classification associated with the search query 142 and / or indicator input 2902 can affect the formatting (or formatting) 2908 of results displayed on the mobile communication facility 102. For example, formatting can expand the category results and order the results according to indicator inputs (eg, by descending popularity), by category, or according to some other schema (or scheme) Can (or order).

  In some embodiments, user behaviors (or actions) (eg, clicks on content) regarding the formatting of results displayed on the mobile communication facility 102 can be subjected to click and impression analysis 2310 and query classification. 2304 and / or indicator input 2902 can be used to further refine, structure, index, and / or order (or order).

  In some embodiments, by associating query 142 with indicator input 2902 and / or query classification, based at least in part on user interaction with content and interaction history with other users, An optimal content ranking (or rating) can be determined for display on the user's mobile communication facility 102. For example, it is possible to determine a threshold (eg, popularity rank) for presenting content to the mobile communication facility 102, to determine which content type to expand, etc.

  Continuing with reference to FIG. 29, in some embodiments, a navigation request 2932 may be received from the mobile communication facility 102 to generate dynamic content 2934 (which may be associated with an indicator input). Can be combined with possible indicator input 2902. In this case, the dynamic content 2934 can be presented to the mobile communication facility 102. In some embodiments, the navigation request 2932 is based on a search query, domain name input, web browser action, menu selection, folder selection, implicit, and mobile communication facility 102 location, transaction, and ad conversion. It can be implicit. In some embodiments, the dynamically generated content 2934 can be an advertisement, a banner advertisement, a text insertion, an image, etc. For example, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 may enter a navigation request 2932 for “baseball field”. Indicator input 2902 indicates that the user is currently in the north of Boston and that the number of queries related to match 7 at Red Sox ALCS is high in the system and that the user has previously , Indicates that you have inquired the direction (or directions) to Fenway Park. In this case, dynamic content 2934 on Fenway Park directions (or directions to Fenway Park), Red Sox and ALCS general subjects can be delivered to the user's mobile communication facility 102. For example, the user may be presented with a map image showing the direction (or directions), text (letters or sentences) showing the direction (or directions), as well as a red sox ticket, uniform (or cross), website, stadium (baseball Ad) related to parking lots and nearby restaurants, etc., as well as ads related to the ALCS series, as well as ads related to the upcoming World Series, and other local sports teams. Can present advertisements, etc. In some embodiments, dynamic content 2923 that combines indicator input 2902 with navigation request 2932 gives the user's mobile communication facility 102 greater relevance to the user's objects and interests. Can be provided. In some embodiments, the mobile communication facility 102 may be a telephone, mobile phone, cellular phone, GSM phone, and the like.

  In some embodiments, the indicator input 2902 may include content popularity, query popularity, current location of the mobile communication facility 102, previous location of the mobile communication facility 102, user characteristics, editing work product, by wireless provider. Data provided, transaction history provided by the wireless provider, provided by data of the mobile communication facility 102 (or transaction history provided by data of the mobile communication facility 102), location on the mobile communication facility 102, A history of locations on the mobile communication facility 102 can be included. Indicator input 2902 may provide a result that is more likely to statistically match navigation request 2932 as a result of taking into account some factor. For example, the current popularity of content subject matter in navigation request references to "American Idol" refers to a television program called American Idol, rather than a more general search for idols in current US culture. Probability is high. As such, if this indicator input 2902 is provided for the generation of dynamic content 2934, it may be more likely to result in the options the user is searching for. In another example, search results for the search term “fashion cloths” that users have in mind that they have the user characteristics that indicate that they are attending university are retired (or retired). Can be very different from the search results for the current user. In this example, the dynamic content 2934 can provide a map or location related to the current fashion, depending on the age of the user. In some embodiments, the indicator input 2902 can be used to provide improved relevance during the generation of dynamic content 2934 resulting from a navigation request 2932 from the mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, indicator input 2902 may include, for example, age, gender, race, religion, area code, postal code, home address, work address, billing address, credit information, family information, income information, Including grouping the results based at least in part on the association with the mobile subscriber characteristics 112, selected from the group consisting of date of birth, place of birth, employer, job title (or title), working period, etc. be able to. For example, a user may be an 18-year-old white male graduated from San Antonio, Texas and a college student. The user is in Chicago and enters a navigation request 2932 for “Restaurant”. Currently, there are so many restaurants in Chicago that the user is probably only interested in restaurants available in a small area. Based at least in part on the user's mobile subscriber characteristics 112, the indicator input 2902 refines the results and sorts (or sorts) the final results by the degree of interest associated with the user's mobile subscriber characteristics 112. ) Can be an effective means. For example, the user may be interested in a restaurant about popular food in San Antonio, the town where the user currently lives. In this case, if the term of the user's first navigation request 2932 lacks specificity, for example, it would be appropriate to provide directions (or directions) to a restaurant in a region that specializes in rib meat (or ribs) There are cases. In some embodiments, this may be the end of the user's search, where the user selects one of the options and does not enter a further navigation request 2932.

  Continuing with the above example, in some embodiments, the user enters a more specific navigation request 2932 such as “nearest hamburger” without selecting one of the options. In this example, the user can be provided with choices based on the distance from the user's current location to a restaurant that specializes in serving burgers. Further, indicator input 2902 indicates that the user was at a location (or place) near McDonald's in Kansas City at lunchtime yesterday. In this case, the results for the restaurant that specializes in burgers can be further rearranged (or sorted) by giving McDonald a priority.

  In some embodiments, indicator input 2902 can include an association with location data 2920. There are several techniques for determining the location of the mobile communication facility 102, such as GPS, triangulation, and triangulation using Wi-Fi. The location of the mobile communication facility 102 can be determined when a user enters a particular location, and the location of the facility 102 can include multiple geographic regions such as states (or countries) and cities. The location of the facility 102 can be specified according to the distance from the specified location, can be associated with some aspect of the mobile content of the mobile communication facility 102, and so on. For example, a person living in Boston may type in a navigation request 2932 of “sports tickets”, so that the person may enter Red Sox, Patriots, and You may be interested in tickets for other local teams. Alternatively, the user may be away from home, so that the user may be interested in a team ticket associated with the user's current location. In this case, the current location of the user can be determined by, for example, the GPS-compatible mobile communication facility 102. Other examples where dynamic content 2934 is generated depending on location include locations associated with restaurants, travel tickets, entertainment, florists, colleges, home renovations (or renovations), etc. Can do. In some embodiments, the dynamic content 2934 presented to the user's mobile communication facility 102 can be determined at least by location, the dynamic content providing the user with an improved list of search results. Can do.

  In some embodiments, some aspects of processing the navigation request 2932 may utilize data of the mobile communication facility 102, such as indicator input 2902. For example, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 is not in his / her home but in another state, but the user is in the area of the area code where he / she calls regularly. In addition, the user has a call history and browsing history to the hardware store and home renovation website for the past week before going on a trip. The user then enters a navigation request 2932 “plaster cracks” on the current Saturday morning. In this case, along with the navigation request 2932, indicator input 2902 associated with user usage history data 2918 and current location data 2920 can be provided for the generation of dynamic content 2934. This usage history indicates that the user may have recently thought about home renovation and that the hardware store expects to purchase materials (or tools) related to home renovation by calling the hardware store. It may indicate that Thus, the indicator input 2902 can be made higher (or in line with) the need for home renovation. Further, the indicator input 2902 now indicates the user's current location, so the dynamic content 2934 may have an increased relevance to the user's current location. Dynamic content 2934 related to plaster refurbishment in the general category of home remodeling by combining the terminology of the navigation request 2932 for plaster and cracks with indicator input 2902 for home renovation. Can bring. Dynamic content 2934 can be generated in connection with a local home renovation store (or local home repair store), a local contractor specializing in plaster repair, and the like. In formatting the results for presentation to the user, the user has called Lowes many times, but has mostly called Home Depot or a local hardware store. It can be further understood from the usage history that there is no. As a result of this preference, the location of the local Lowes is placed at the top of the response list displayed on the mobile communication facility 102 as part of the dynamic content 2934, and hits related to other plaster repairs are subsequently Can be placed. Further, other dynamic content 2934 associated with navigation request 2932 and indicator input 2902, such as advertisements, can be generated and sent to mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, some aspects of processing the navigation request 2932 may utilize activities (such as operations or actions) on the mobile communication facility 102, such as browser actions, menu selections, transactions, and the like. For example, suppose a user has just completed a browser action related to grain bait. This example relates to grain diets, such as directions to local grain providers, grain advertisements, grain banner banners, text insertions about grain diets, and image-based advertisements about grain diets. Dynamic content 2934 can be presented to the user's mobile communication facility 102. In some embodiments, the user action can provide a navigation request 2932 that can generate dynamic content 2934 and provide it to a user of the mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, business rules can be associated with a query classification engine. Business rules include popularity rules, location rules, mobile communication facility type rules, keyword matching rules, parental control rules, spelling and spelling correction rules, recommendations (or recommendations) rules, and user characteristics. Rules, or some other business rule can be included.

  In some embodiments, and with reference to FIG. 30, to assist navigation to specific vertical content and / or to assist in viewing content from a promising answer source. In addition, user intent can be identified using query classification methods and systems. In order to understand what the user is searching and what is selected as a result of the search, the user's search behavior can be consistently analyzed and monitored. In some embodiments, the search engine can classify different types of queries to connect the user's search to the right content in the shortest distance. Thus, a search for “ice cream boston” can select local listing results rather than a general web page, and a search for “UA 123” can return flight arrival and departure information. .

  In some embodiments, the search engine uses query classification to identify a user's search intent and specificity (or specificity) to guide the user to the best individual results, or You can prioritize the categories of results that respond to user queries. In some embodiments, both language specific rules (rules) and statistical methods can be used to identify user intent. Language-specific rules can identify refined searches (or narrow searches) and guide users to specific results. For example, if a user is searching for “maps nyc,” the language-specific rules are “maps”, which is an important term, and “nyc”, which is a specific location (or place). And the user can infer that he is looking for a map of New York. In this example, the user can be directed to a New York map provided by a map vertical. A second query classification tool, statistical methods, can rank (or rank) different categories of results for a wider query. For example, if a user is searching for the name of a celebrity, such as the model “Naomi Campbell,” the past action may result in the user seeing an image or new article rather than music. Can be inferred that they are likely to be looking for, so those categories can be returned at the top of the first page result set.

  In some embodiments, the query classification engine heuristic can be tailored on a language-by-language basis or on an operator-wide basis. Query classification can identify different patterns of search behavior that assist in the proper display of a given query. The classification can become a finer classification as the system learns more about user behavior (or behavior).

  In some embodiments, the display of the mobile communication facility 102 responds to the user's query, assists the user in removing the ambiguity of the user's query, and guides the user to a deeper nature of the content. And “widgets” may be included to make the most popular and / or most relevant content emerge (bubble up). Widgets can use structured or semi-structured data to help users minimize content searches and to respond directly to user queries. In addition to query classification, the “learning” algorithm uses click and impression analysis to indicate when to show responses / results, where to show responses / results on the page, and / or from a given source It can be determined how much content should be displayed. While this algorithm can determine the proper set of results, it introduces editing capabilities (or edit overrides) to provide content for queries based at least in part on actively managing / trading query results. It is possible to influence the display of.

  In some embodiments, the editor can import / export common format supplies and keywords, select display templates, and assign relevance weights to content component types. it can. For example, the query “music” is so broad that it cannot rely entirely on the algorithm, but instead can request a review on reviews or a business review. Through session and user behavior analysis, editors can identify content that will help narrow the search and get closer to what the user actually intends. If the query is "music", the editor may build a smart component to reveal genre links, navigation links that guide users deeper into music verticals, and video links. it can. If these links don't work, the editor can make adjustments.

  In some embodiments, the popularity management tool may allow an editor to check algorithm weights and adjust thresholds for smart components and their associated content.

  In some embodiments, the method and system for query classification can affect the display logic associated with the mobile communication facility 102 (display logic). In one example, search queries can be classified according to a query classification scheme. Query classification methods are Vertical Class, Navigation Class, Navigation Class, Definition Class, Category Class, Specific Class, Query + Modifier Class (Query + Modifier Class) ), A Reference Class, an Adult Class, or some other query class (but not limited to).

  In some embodiments, the vertical class can include a search vertical. Search verticals can be associated with content taxonomy, can be general searches, or search, ringtones, images, games, yellow pages, climate (weather), white pages, news headlines, WAP site, website, movie start time, sports score, stock price, flight departure time, map, direction (or directions), price comparison, Wi-Fi hotspot, luggage tracking, hotel fee, fantasy sports Can be associated with grades (or statistics), horoscopes, answers, dictionaries, area codes, postal codes, entertainment, blogs, or some other search vertical.

  In some embodiments, the navigation class can be an identified domain name, URL, website, IP address, or some other location related to navigation.

  In some embodiments, a definition class can be associated with a query that includes the terms “define”, “definition”, “meaning”, “means”, or some other term associated with a request for a definition. .

  In some embodiments, a category class can be associated with a deeper classification (eg, hip hop, NFL, soccer, camera) within the search query to help the user remove the query ambiguity. Can contain bubble-up content / topics.

  In some embodiments, the specificity class can indicate the user's intent in various categories (eg, Shooter, Hinder, Sagittarius, Smallville, Nikon coolpix) Or a list of extracted data.

  In some embodiments, the query + qualifier class can be a combination of subcategories, genres, and / or specific sources.

  In some embodiments, the reference class can be data extracted from a reference source, such as an online encyclopedia.

  In some embodiments, an adult class can be associated with adult content, such as a game, gambling, pornography, lottery, or some other form of adult content (adult content).

  In some embodiments, query classification can be associated with indicator input 3002. Indicator input 3002 may include current content popularity, current query popularity, currently appearing (or emerging) query, current location, previous location, user characteristics, editing activity, or mobile communication facility, It may include a user of the facility and / or some other indicator related to the query content.

  In some embodiments, the query classification associated with the search query 142 and / or indicator input 3002 can affect the formatting (or formatting) 3008 of the results displayed on the mobile communication facility 102. For example, formatting can expand the category results and order the results according to indicator inputs (eg, by descending popularity), by category, or according to some other schema (or scheme) Can (or order).

  In some embodiments, user actions relating to formatting results displayed on the mobile communication facility 102 (eg, clicks on content) can be subjected to click and impression analysis and query classification and / or indicator input. 3002 can be used to further refine, structure, index, and / or order (or order).

  In some embodiments, by associating query 142 with indicator input 3002 and / or query classification, based at least in part on user interactions with content and interactions with other users, An optimal content ranking (or rating) can be determined for display on the user's mobile communication facility 102. For example, it is possible to determine a threshold (eg, popularity rank) for presenting content to the mobile communication facility 102, to determine which content type to expand, etc.

  Continuing with reference to FIG. 30, in some embodiments, a navigation request 3032 can be received from the mobile communication facility 102 and combined with an indicator input 3002 and business rules 3038 that can generate dynamic content 3034. . In this case, dynamic content 3034 can be presented to the mobile communication facility 102. In some embodiments, the navigation request 3032 is based on a search query, domain name input, web browser action, menu selection, folder selection, implicit, and mobile communication facility 102 location, transaction, and ad conversion.

In some embodiments, the dynamically generated content 3034 can be an advertisement, a banner advertisement, a text insertion, an image, etc. For example, a user of mobile communication facility 102 may enter a navigation request 3032 for “baseball field”. Indicator input 3002 indicates that the user is currently in the north of Boston, and that the number of queries related to match 7 at Red Sox ALCS is high in the system, and that the user has previously , Indicates you have been asked for directions (or directions) to Fenway Park. In this case, Fenway Park direction (or directions to Fenway Park), Red Sox general theme, and ALCS dynamic content 3034 can be delivered to the user's mobile communication facility 102. . For example, the user may be presented with a map image showing the direction (or directions), text (letters or sentences) showing the direction (or directions), as well as a red sox ticket, uniform (or cross), website, stadium (baseball Ad) related to parking lots and nearby restaurants, etc., as well as ads related to the ALCS series, as well as ads related to the upcoming World Series, and other local sports teams. Can present advertisements, etc. In some embodiments, dynamic content 3034 that combines indicator input 3002 with navigation request 3032 gives the user's mobile communication facility 102 greater relevance to the user's objects and interests. Can be provided. In some embodiments, the mobile communication facility 102 may be a telephone, mobile phone, cellular phone, GSM phone, and the like.

  Continuing the above example, in some embodiments, the business rules 3038 may include predetermined dynamic content 3034 such as sports bar advertisements around Fenway Park in response to a navigation request 3032 for “baseball field”. It may be prevented from being delivered to the mobile communication facility 102, in which case the indicator input 3002 indicates that the user is a minor. Another example of a business rule 3038 that applies to the generation of dynamic content 3034 for minors may be cigarettes associated with the navigation request 3032 or legitimate gambling advertisements.

  In some embodiments, business rules 3038 can be applied to the generation of dynamic content 3034 to limit or increase dynamic content 3034. In this case, the dynamic content is generated without such restriction. For example, there may be business rules 3038 to make the content and / or advertisement more focused based on some criteria such as holidays, sports events, seasonal events, national elections, and the like. There may also be business rules 3038 to focus more weakly on content and / or advertising based on some criteria such as national emergency, death of important persons, national violence, morning, etc. In some embodiments, business rules 3038 may be applied, for example, on a sponsor basis, a product basis, a content basis. For example, let's say a lot of people died from a fire in a bar. The next day, ads related to drinking establishments can be canceled. This is because the sponsor wants to avoid a negative association between the sponsor's product and its fire. In some embodiments, business rules 3038 may allow specific or global overrides (such as suspension or modification) for the delivery of dynamic content 3034 to the mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, the indicator input 3002 may be content popularity, query popularity, current location of the mobile communication facility 102, previous location of the mobile communication facility 102, user characteristics, editing work product, by wireless provider. Data provided, transaction history provided by the wireless provider, provided by data of the mobile communication facility 102 (or transaction history provided by data of the mobile communication facility 102), location on the mobile communication facility 102, A history of locations on the mobile communication facility 102 can be included. The indicator input 3002 may provide a result that is more likely to statistically match the navigation request 3032 as a result of taking into account some factor. For example, the current popularity of content subjects in navigation request references to “American Idol” may point to a television program called American Idol, rather than a more general search for idols in current US culture. High nature. As such, when this indicator input 3002 is provided for the generation of dynamic content 3034, it may be more likely to result in the options the user is searching for. In another example, search results for the search term “fashion cloths” that users have in mind that they have the user characteristics that indicate that they are attending university are retired (or retired). Can be very different from the search results for the current user. In this example, the dynamic content 3034 can provide a map or location (or location) associated with the current fashion, depending on the age of the user. In some embodiments, indicator input 3002 can be used to provide improved relevance in the generation of dynamic content 3034 resulting from navigation request 3032 from mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, the indicator input 3002 can be, for example, age, gender, race, religion, area code, postal code, home address, work address, billing address, credit information, family information, income information, Including grouping the results based at least in part on the association with the mobile subscriber characteristics 112, selected from the group consisting of date of birth, place of birth, employer, job title (or title), working period, etc. be able to. For example, a user may be an 18-year-old white male graduated from San Antonio, Texas and a college student. The user is in Chicago and enters a navigation request 3032 for “Restaurant”. Currently, there are so many restaurants in Chicago that the user is probably only interested in restaurants available in a small area. Based at least in part on the user's mobile subscriber characteristics 112, the indicator input 2902 refines the results and sorts (or sorts) the final results by the degree of interest associated with the user's mobile subscriber characteristics 112. ) Can be an effective means. For example, the user may be interested in a restaurant about popular food in San Antonio, the town where the user currently lives. In this case, if the term of the user's first navigation request 3032 lacks specificity, for example, it would be appropriate to provide directions (or directions) to a restaurant in an area that specializes in ribs (or ribs) There are cases. In some embodiments, this may be the end of the user's search, where the user selects one of the options and does not enter a further navigation request 3032.

  Continuing with the above example, in some embodiments, the user enters a more specific navigation request 3032 such as “nearest hamburger” without selecting one of the options. In this example, the user can be provided with choices based on the distance from the user's current location to a restaurant that specializes in serving burgers. Further, the indicator input 3002 indicates that the user was at a location (or place) near McDonald's in Kansas City at lunchtime yesterday. In this case, the results for a restaurant that specializes in hamburgers can be reordered, giving McDonald a priority ranking.

    In some embodiments, indicator input 3002 can include an association with location data 2920. There are several techniques for determining the location of the mobile communication facility 102, such as GPS, triangulation, and triangulation using Wi-Fi. The location of the mobile communication facility 102 can be determined when a user enters a particular location, and the location of the facility 102 can include multiple geographic regions such as states (or countries) and cities. The location of the facility 102 can be specified according to the distance from the specified location, can be associated with some aspect of the mobile content of the mobile communication facility 102, and so on. For example, a person living in Boston may type in a navigation request 3032 of “sports tickets”, so that the person is Red Sox, Patriots, and You may be interested in tickets for other local teams. Alternatively, the user may be away from home, so that the user may be interested in a team ticket associated with the user's current location. In this case, the current location of the user can be determined by, for example, the GPS-compatible mobile communication facility 102. Other examples where dynamic content 2934 is generated depending on location include locations associated with restaurants, travel tickets, entertainment, florists, colleges, home renovations (or renovations), etc. Can do. In some embodiments, the dynamic content 3034 presented to the user's mobile communication facility 102 can be determined at least by location, the dynamic content providing the user with an improved list of search results. Can do.

  In some embodiments, some aspects of processing the navigation request 3032 may utilize data of the mobile communication facility 102, such as the indicator input 3002. For example, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 is not in his / her home but in another state, but the user is in the area of the area code where he / she calls regularly. In addition, the user has a call history and browsing history to the hardware store and home renovation website for the past week before going on a trip. The user then enters a navigation request 3032 “plaster cracks” on the current Saturday morning. In this case, along with the navigation request 3032, indicator usage 3002 related to the user's usage history and current location can be provided for the generation of dynamic content 3034. This usage history indicates that the user may have recently thought about home renovation and that the hardware store expects to purchase materials (or tools) related to home renovation by calling the hardware store. It may indicate that Thus, the indicator input 3002 can be made higher (or in line with) the need for home renovation. Further, the indicator input 3002 now indicates the user's current location, so that the dynamic content 3034 may have an increased relevance to the user's current location. Dynamic content 3034 related to plaster refurbishment within the general category of home renovation by combining the terminology of navigation request 3032 for plaster and cracks with indicator input 3002 for home renovation. Can bring. Dynamic content 3034 may be generated in connection with a local home renovation store (or local home repair store), a local contractor specializing in plaster repair, and the like. In formatting the results for presentation to the user, the user has called Lowes many times, but has mostly called Home Depot or a local hardware store. It can be further understood from the usage history that there is no. As a result of this preference, the location of the local Lowes is placed at the top of the response list displayed on the mobile communication facility 102 as part of the dynamic content 3034, and hits related to other plaster repairs are subsequently Can be placed. In addition, other dynamic content 3034 associated with the navigation request 3032 and indicator input 3002, such as advertisements, can be generated and sent to the mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, some aspects of processing the navigation request 3032 may utilize activities (such as operations and actions) on the mobile communication facility 102, such as browser actions, menu selections, transactions, and the like. For example, suppose a user has just completed a browser action related to grain bait. This example relates to grain feeds, such as directions to local grain feed providers (or directions), grain feed advertisements, grain feed banner advertisements, grain feed text insertions, and image-based advertisements about grain diets. Dynamic content 3034 can be presented to the user's mobile communication facility 102. In some embodiments, the user action can provide a navigation request 3032 that can generate dynamic content 3034 and provide it to a user of the mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, business rules can be associated with a query classification engine. Business rules include popularity rules, location rules, mobile communication facility type rules, keyword matching rules, parental control rules, spelling and spelling correction rules, recommendations (or recommendations) rules, and user characteristics. Rules, or some other business rule can be included.

  Referring to FIG. 31, in some embodiments, survey content 3108 may be combined with sponsored content 3114 in interactive content integration facility 3104 in response to a mobile communication facility navigation request 3118. The combined survey content 3108 and sponsored content 3114 can generate interactive sponsored content 3102 that can be presented to a user of the mobile communication facility 102. In this case, the user can be involved in the survey content 3108 aspect of the interactive sponsored content 3102 and can provide a response to the survey content 3108 to the survey response analysis 3110. In this case, multiple user responses can be analyzed. A survey analysis 3112 can be generated as a result of the survey response analysis 3110, and the survey analysis 3112 can be provided to the mobile communication facility 102 for display to a user. In addition, the interactive content integration facility 3104 provides data related to the mobile communication facility 102, such as mobile subscriber characteristics data 112, user transaction data 3124, user history data 3120, location data 3122, and context information related to the website 3128. It can also be considered.

  For example, in some embodiments, a teenage boy is talking on the phone or typing an email as part of the boy's mobile communication facility 102 activity (such as an operation or action). The interactive sponsor-provided content 3102 including the survey content 3108 can be displayed on the display of the boy's mobile communication facility 102 as “Which team will win this year's World Series?”. In this case, there are two dialog buttons, and “Red Sox” can be displayed below one button and “Rockies” can be displayed below the other button. In addition to the survey content 3108, there may be sponsored content 3114, such as sportswear advertisements associated with these two teams, associated with the World Series. In some embodiments, for example, based on data related to the mobile communication facility 102 from usage history data 3120 related to content in the league determination series, sports related survey content 3108 and related sportswear Sponsored content 3114 can be selected and distributed to the mobile communication facility 102. In this example, a sports-sensitive user may click on a red sox button. This response is sent to and included in a survey response analysis 3110 that can include multiple user responses. In some embodiments, survey response analysis 3110 can result in survey analysis 3112 that can be presented to mobile communication facility 102 for display to a user. In this example, survey analysis 3112 can provide, for example, a survey response indicating that 72% of the surveyed users believe that Red Sox will win this year's World Series. In some embodiments, a user may be more influenced by sportswear sponsored content 3114 presented in connection with a sports survey 3108. This is because the sports theme of the interactive sponsored content 3102 is selected based on recent user usage history data 3120 related to the playoff of the national baseball. In some embodiments, the use of data (eg, mobile subscriber characteristics) of the mobile communication facility 102 in selecting interactive sponsored content 3102 to be delivered to the mobile communication facility 102 can enhance effectiveness. Sponsor provided content 3114 can be provided to the user. In some embodiments, sponsored content 3114 and / or survey content 3108 are selected based in part on data related to mobile communication facility 102, such as mobile subscriber characteristics, location, usage history, transaction history, and the like. be able to.

  In some embodiments, the survey content 3108 includes choices to choose, item matching, simple answers, simple answer choices, image choices, response time test, fill in, questions about truth questions, etc. It can take a number of different forms. In some embodiments, the survey analysis can take a number of different forms, such as percentage of results, images, words, etc., as well as other survey content 3108.

  In some embodiments, the relevance matching between the data associated with the user's mobile communication facility 102 and the selection of interactive sponsored content 3102 (whether it is sponsored content or survey content, or Regardless of whether they are both important aspects of the effective delivery of interactive sponsored content 3102 and make the interactive sponsored content 3102 more targeted. One way to better ensure relevance to the user is mobile subscriber characteristic data related to the user's mobile communication facility 102, including user profile information, demographic information, billing information, etc. Use 112 By using such information, it is possible to perform relevance matching of interactive sponsored content 3102 to the user's personal attributes (or personal attributes) such as the user's age, address, gender, etc. For example, clothing advertising can be matched (ie, paired with a fit) to match the user's age, gender, and whether the user lives in the city or countryside. Ads for men can target sports, cars, home renovations, etc. Ads for girls can target clothing, etc. Ads for seniors It can target health products, travel, etc. In some embodiments, mobile subscriber characteristic data 1 2 can be useful not only for distributed advertisements, but also for matching with distributed survey content 3108. For example, for home repair (or renovation) needs for girls Survey content 3108 may not generate any response to the survey and may not have any effect from the advertisement, so the subject matter of interactive sponsored content 3102 In some embodiments, profile data such as age, gender, address, etc. is sufficient for the initial relevance matching of interactive sponsored content 3108 for a user of mobile communication facility 102. It is possible.

  In some embodiments, relevance can be obtained from user transaction data 3124 associated with the mobile communication facility 102, such as online product purchases, online shopping cart contents, ad conversions, and the like. For example, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 may have just purchased clothing suitable for some women's season. Now, the user may not be interested in purchasing any more seasonal clothing, and as a result of this purchase, the relevance for seasonal clothing is significantly lower (or smaller). However, since the user is a woman and has not purchased any shoes suitable for the season, the relevance to the shoes can be increased (or increased) as a result of the purchase. In another example, a user may be in the process of purchasing a new floor mat for a new car, which may indicate that the user has just purchased a new car. is there. As a result, this can reduce the relevance to car advertisements, but can increase the relevance of car care products. Further, user transactions can indicate user interest and can provide better relevance matching of interactive sponsored content 3102 to the user. For example, a user who purchases a textbook online can be a student, but this assertion (eg, the user is a student) is matched to a survey on college life and combined with a concert ticket ad Doing so may be useful in matching interactive sponsored content 3102 to the user's interests. In some embodiments, user transaction data 3124 associated with the mobile communication facility 102 can be effectively used in determining the relevance of interactive sponsored content 3102 with respect to user interaction. .

  In some embodiments, the relevance may be obtained from usage history data 3120, wireless carrier data, etc. associated with the mobile communication facility 102, such as browsing history (such as web pages) and advertising conversion history. For example, a user may be in the middle of browsing a plasma TV (such as a web page), so that it is relevant to advertisements related to plasma TVs and other similar products such as LCD TVs. Can be high. This increased relevance can be reduced over time after browsing (such as a web page), which may indicate that the user has made a subsequent purchase. In another example, a user may be browsing a university campus website, so that the user is advertising a consumer product related to the university, such as a university and a laptop computer. Can be targeted in graduation studies combined. In some embodiments, usage history data 3120 can track not only the type of converted ads, but also the ad conversion history. For example, a user may be converting an advertisement for a mortgage interest rate so that the user can be targeted for advertising and research related to the mortgage interest rate. Radio carrier data can also be tracked, and the data can provide information that leads to increased relevance matching. For example, a user may make many calls from the financial district in New York City, which may result in advertising related to finance or research on how the market will move in the next week. Relevance can be high. In some embodiments, usage history data 3120 may be used to improve relevance in selecting interactive sponsored content 3102 that is presented to a user of mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, relevance was entered (or entered) by location (or location) history, previous location, current location, location determined according to location coordinates of a particular mobile communication facility ) Obtain from location data 3122 associated with mobile communication facility 102, such as location determined by location (or location), location as multiple geographic regions, location determined according to distance from specified location, etc. Can do. For example, if the user of the mobile communication facility 102 is near a clothing shopping street, the relevance to clothing-related advertisements and survey questions 3108 may be high. When a user is close to a series of car dealerships, the relevance to car advertisements can be high, with various car photos presented as part of interactive sponsored content 3102. The relevance to research related to cars, such as "Which car will you drive?" In some embodiments, location data 3122 can be used to improve relevance in selecting interactive sponsored content 3102 that is presented to a user of mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, relevance can be obtained from context information 3128 associated with the website, such as link structure, inbound links, outbound links, links, text, keywords, metadata, and the like. For example, a user may be browsing a horticultural (or gardening) website on the user's mobile communication facility 102, and the user selects content related to outdoor planting and garden design. Encounter the scene. In some embodiments, this content can be selected by the user to provide increased relevance to outdoor gardening supplies, landscapers, outdoor renovations, etc., where the content The interactive sponsored content 3102 may include surveys on content content, such as horticultural questions, home remodeling loan interest rates, and the like. In another example, a website may have an inbound link or an outbound link that can suggest relevance to a subject (theme), such as a link to a woodworking website. Indicates that they may be interested in tools and supplies related to making furniture. This can also be an indicator of the user's gender and age. This is because woodworking can generally be a concern for older middle class men. Therefore, this is suitable for age and gender delivered with advertisements focused on power tools related to woodwork as a home activity and surveys such as “Which wood chair is better in quality” Interactive sponsored content 3102 can be generated. In some embodiments, context information 3128 associated with a website can be used to improve relevance in selecting interactive sponsored content 3102 that is presented to a user of mobile communication facility 102.

  In some embodiments, interactive sponsored content 3108, such as advertisements, is delivered to the user along with survey content 3108 to improve the time that sponsored content 3114 appears in front of the user of the mobile communication facility 102. can do. That is, if the survey content 3108 that the user wants to interact with is delivered to the user and an advertisement is visible with the survey content 3108 on the display of the mobile communication facility 102, the effect of the advertisement on the user is Will be enhanced. Furthermore, by increasing the relevance of the interactive sponsor-provided content 3102 to the user, the effectiveness of the advertisement can be enhanced. That is, if the presented advertisement is relevant to the user, the user is more likely to be affected by the advertisement, and if the survey content 3108 is more relevant to the user, the user Are more likely to interact with the survey content 3108, and therefore, more likely the ad will appear before the user, which may also increase the effectiveness of the ad. it can. In some embodiments, improved relevance in the selection of interactive sponsored content 3102 presented to a user of mobile communication facility 102 can increase the effectiveness of sponsored content, The number of sponsors associated with the sponsorship facility 162 can be further increased.

  Referring to FIG. 32, in some embodiments, content such as advertisements and other sponsored content related to offline advertisements 3202 found in newspapers, magazines, televisions, radios, mail, bulletin boards, etc., are included in mobile communication facilities. 102 can be distributed. Such offline advertisement 3202 can include a search keyword 3208, and the content can be delivered when the keyword is input to the search facility 3210 of the mobile communication facility. In some embodiments, the content can be at least partially associated with the search keyword 3208 as well as an association with the criteria 3204 associated with the mobile communication facility 102, where the mobile communication facility 102 is It can be a mobile phone, a cellular phone, a GSM phone, or the like. In some embodiments, the criteria 3204 associated with the mobile communication facility 102 may be mobile subscriber characteristic data 112, usage history data 3218, user transaction data 3222, location data 3220, contextual information about website content 3224, and so forth. Can do.

  For example, in some embodiments, a newspaper advertisement can be an advertisement for a new product line in Ford's car, which includes the word “Ford”, “Purchase New Ford. ", And some alphanumeric search keywords such as alphanumeric characters that are not words such as FD07 $ !. The newspaper advertisement in this case allows the user to enter the search keyword 3208 into the search facility 3210 of the user's mobile communication facility 102 in order to receive some relevant content, such as in this example further information about the new product line of the car. You can instruct them to enter. Further, the criteria 3204 associated with the user's mobile communication facility 102 can be used to target content to some aspect of the user. In the present example, it is beneficial for sponsor 128, who distributes content related to Ford's new line of cars, to know mobile subscriber information. The mobile subscriber information determines usage information, such as age, gender, etc., whether the user has browsed (such as a web page) to find a new car, and a dealer for reference in the returned content Location, context information associated with the website, i.e. whether or not the user has accessed a website with links or references associated with cars, in particular Ford cars, etc. Once such criteria 3204 is identified, it provides information on new Mustang to single men, provides information on economic models to college students, provides information on 4-door sedan to users with children, The content can be further targeted to the user, such as grouping cars by criteria, and can be modified to suit the user. So, for example, a young man with a history of usage indicating that he has recently graduated from a university, where online spending through a new PDA has increased significantly, and content related to the new Mustang instead of a sedan It can be received at the facility 102. In some embodiments, the search keyword 3208 in the offline advertisement 3202 can deliver extended online content to the user's mobile communication facility 102 at a convenient time, where the user It is not necessary to remember the search keyword 3208 for later access using a non-mobile communication facility such as a personal computer. Further, the likelihood that the search keyword 3208 will be used can be great due to the immediate accessibility of the user's mobile communication facility 102, which increases the effectiveness of the advertisement and sponsorship participation in the sponsorship facility 162. (That is, to become a sponsor or to support as a sponsor).

  The above is just one example of how the search keyword 3208 is used in delivering content to the mobile communication facility 102. In some embodiments, the search keyword 3208 can be a search vertical, such as a general search, or a ringtone, image, game, yellow page, climate (weather), white page, news headline, WAP site, website , Movie start times, sports scores, stock prices, flight departure times, maps, directions (or directions), price comparisons, Wi-Fi hotspots, luggage tracking, hotel prices, fantasy sports performance (or statistics) , Horoscopes, answers, dictionaries, area codes, postal codes, entertainment, blogs, etc. can be associated with multiple search verticals. For example, the search keyword 3208 can be embedded in a newspaper horoscope, and the relevant content in this case can be horoscope information delivered with relevance that matches the user's date of birth, The search keyword 3208 can be embedded in an advertisement in a yellow page for a hair salon, and the related content in this case can be a hair salon service based on age, and the search keyword can be distributed in a board game. The relevant content in this case can be information about other games having relevance that matches the age of the user, and the search keyword 3208 is embedded in the display portion of the start time of the newspaper (or document) movie. In this case, the related content can It can be a movie that has a relevance to match. In some embodiments, offline advertisements to users of mobile communication facilities 102 are made in multiple offline media by using search keywords 3208 that are used to provide mobile communication facilities 102 with content that matches criteria 3204. It becomes possible to expand.

  In some embodiments, the content delivered to the mobile communication facility 102 is relevant based at least in part on expected values that can be data, bids (bids), click-through amounts, etc. It can be. For example, the data can be the price or price range of the advertised item (or product), the bid for an auction promoted in connection with the offline advertisement 3202.

  In some embodiments, relevance criteria 3204 matching is an important aspect in terms of effective distribution of content and can be more targeted to the intended audience. One method for better relevance to the user utilizes mobile subscriber characteristic data 112 from the user's mobile communication facility 102, including user profile information, demographic information, billing information, etc. Where mobile subscriber characteristics include age, gender, race, religion, area code, postal code, home address, work address, billing address, credit information, family information, income information, year of birth It is selected from the group consisting of month, date of birth, employer, job type (or title), and working period. Using such information allows relevance matching (eg, matching or pairing) to the user's personal attributes such as the user's age, address, gender and the like. For example, advertising for clothing can be matched to the user's age, gender, and whether the user lives in a city or country. Middle-aged male ads can target sports, cars, home repairs (or renovations), and more. Advertising for girls can target clothing and the like. Advertising for the elderly can target health products, travel, etc. In some embodiments, the information obtained from the mobile subscriber characteristics information is not only useful for matching the delivered content, but also makes the content suitable for (or adapted to) the user. ) Can also provide ability. For example, clothing ads in girls 'magazines can provide search keywords to access more information about girls' clothing if the user's gender is female, and the user's age and location (Or place), urban girls who may be preoccupied with the prejudice of fashion are receiving clothing information, while rural girls are receiving clothing information that is a mix of casual and fashion, and older Women can provide different content, such as receiving clothing information related to their parents. In some embodiments, profile data such as age, gender, and address may be used to match the initial criteria of the content to the user of the mobile communication facility 102 as well as adapting the content (such as changing to match). Can be sufficient.

  In some embodiments, the relevant criteria 3204 may be obtained from user transaction data 3222 associated with the mobile communication facility 102, such as online product purchases, online shopping cart contents, advertisement conversions, and the like. For example, a user of the mobile communication facility 102 may have just purchased clothing suitable for some women's season. Now, the user may not be interested in purchasing any more seasonal clothing, and as a result of this purchase, the relevance for seasonal clothing is significantly lower (or smaller). However, since the user is a woman and has not purchased any shoes suitable for the season, the relevance to the shoes can be increased (or increased) as a result of the purchase. In another example, a user may be in the process of purchasing a new floor mat for a new car, which may indicate that the user has just purchased a new car. is there. As a result, this can reduce the relevance to car advertisements, but can increase the relevance of car care products. Further, user transactions can indicate user interests and can provide better relevance matching of content to the user. For example, a user can purchase an electronic game online, which can be matched to a user profile that can better allow the user to select relevant content. Indicates that In some embodiments, user transactions associated with the mobile communication facility 102 can be effectively used in determining the association criteria 3204 matching.

  In some embodiments, the relevance criteria 3204 can be obtained from usage history data 3218 or wireless carrier data associated with the mobile communication facility 102 such as browsing history (browsing history), search history, advertising conversion history, and the like. For example, a user may be viewing a plasma television, and as a result, may be more relevant to advertisements associated with plasma televisions and other similar products such as LCD televisions. This increased relevance can diminish over time after browsing, which can indicate that the user has made a subsequent purchase. In another example, a user may be browsing a college campus website so that it can be targeted for college related consumer products such as laptop computers. Radio carrier data can be tracked and the data can provide information that provides improved relevance matching. For example, a user may make many calls from the financial district in New York City, resulting in greater relevance to financial-related advertising, resulting in a better match of the user to content. Possible user profile information.

In this example, the discovery of this new website and the specific choice of hyperlinks to ethanol production will allow the user to practice natural energy for business, to extend their personal knowledge. In addition, it can be an indicator of interest in ethanol production, for reasons related to election-related issues. This knowledge that can be obtained from this new wireless provider data 4102 can allow for better matching of sponsored content 4128 with the user. In this case, the sponsored content includes advertisements for the business of the user's local ethanol blend (fuel) providers, venture capital investment announcements regarding ethanol and others related to renewable energy sources, Marketing advertising for political lobbying to support legislation on ethanol and others related to renewable energy sources, political advertising relating to politicians (the politician platform includes renewable energy sources) Etc. In some embodiments, wireless provider data 4102 based on new website content discovery may provide a user with improved access to sponsored content 4128 associated with the user's current interests. .

  In some embodiments, wireless provider data may be based at least in part on access statistics 4112. The access statistics may include the frequency of access to a particular phone number, website, search engine, etc., access to the advertisements presented and the duration of the conversion right for the advertisements, access to text messaging (or email) and It can be related to the frequency of the messaging, access to navigation sites, periodicity of access to various types of communications, and so on. For example, a user may frequently visit a household goods website and select a hyperring to fixtures (or furniture). This information can be stored as wireless provider data and can be an indicator that the user is purchasing equipment. This information may allow better matching of the user's interest in equipment (usually household equipment) with sponsored content associated with the equipment. In some embodiments, wireless provider data associated with access statistics 4112 may better aim the sponsored content 4128 for the user.

  In some embodiments, the wireless provider data 4102 can be based at least in part on usage statistics 4112. The usage statistics may include the frequency of use of the mobile communication facility 102, telephone calls, text messaging (or email), frequency of use of various types of communications such as web browsing, search, navigation usage, and the time the user spoke on the phone. The duration of use of various types of communications, such as length, length of time spent searching the web, how long a user has been communicating with another user, the user's online purchase pattern (or form), user Position-use form (or use pattern) and the like. For example, a user may frequently access a fashion website when returning from work in New York City to his home in the suburbs, where the access is from a commuter train. This information can be stored as wireless provider data 4102 and can be used to better aim the fashion advertisement to the user. In addition, the user is known to visit fashion sites on a regular basis while traveling by train from New York City, so that the user is effectively prevented during a clothing sale date in New York City. Can be targeted. This is why the user may decide to go shopping after work and go home on a slower train to take advantage of the sale that is being held. In some embodiments, wireless provider data 4102 associated with usage statistics 4112 may allow for better aiming of sponsored content 4129 to the user.

  In some embodiments, social network activities 4108 that help access social network impact 4134 can be identified in wireless provider data 4102. In this case, an individual who has been accessed and has a high impact 4134 may be targeted by sponsored content 4128 based at least in part on the impact 4134 of the individual. For example, a first user may have a number of interactions with a large personal social network 4108, where the first user is the first user who has the first user's It also has a usage history indicating that it has a statistical tendency to send information from the mobile communication facility 102 to many others in the first user's social network 4108. With this knowledge, advertisements, such as advertisements that originally only had to be sent to the first user, can be spread more effectively, in which case the first user can distribute the advertisement in the social network 4108. Deliver to. In this way, sponsorship facility 162 can minimize the number of advertisements that must be sent, in which case high impact 4134 users will do the rest of the delivery. This is because the user has a statistical tendency to do so.

  In some embodiments, the impact 4134 is sent in the social network 4108, how many outgoing messages can be sent in the social network 4108, how many incoming messages are received from the social network 4108, and so on. Message type, frequency of use of social network 4108, contextual information related to websites visited by the user, user transactions, usage history, etc. In some embodiments, the impact 4134 is determined by age, gender, race, religion, area code, postal code, home address, work address, billing address, credit information, family information, income information, date of birth. It can be based on mobile subscriber characteristics selected from a group including date, place of birth, employer, job type (or title), working period, and so on. In some embodiments, the impact 4134 can be associated with a location (or location). In this case, the position can be determined according to the position coordinates of the particular mobile communication facility 102, can be determined according to the position coordinates determined via GPS, and a plurality of geographical regions and Locations that can be done, multiple geographic regions that contain one or more states (or countries), locations that can be made, and multiple geographies that contain one or more states (or countries) that contain one or more cities A position that can be a target area, a position determined according to a distance from a specified position, a position related to mobile content, and the like. In some embodiments, sponsored content 4128 may be an advertisement.

  In some embodiments, sponsored content 4128 may be advertisements for merchandise, entertainment, events, travel advertisements, etc., delivered to the target in connection with wireless provider data 4102. be able to.

  In some embodiments, a sponsor can bid to obtain exclusive rights to associate the sponsor's content with keywords, locations (or places), or some other data.

  With reference to FIG. 42, in some embodiments, a user of a mobile communication facility 102 can access content 4200, such as a web page, for viewing on a display of the mobile communication facility. In one example, content 4200 may exceed the capacity of the display to display the entire content 4200 in the display, in which case the user of the mobile communication facility initially 1 (4202) is viewed, and then the user is forced to move (or operate) to view content portion 2 (4204). Content portion 1 (hereinafter referred to as content portion 1) 4202 can be associated with context data 1 (4210). Content portion 2 (hereinafter referred to as content portion 2) 4204 can be associated with context data 2 (4212). Context data 1 (4210) and context data 2 (4212) may be stored in the context database 4208. Using the association facility 4214, the sponsored content 1 (4218) associated with the context data 1 (4210) and the sponsored content 2 (4220) associated with the context data 2 (4212) are selected from the sponsored content database 4222. be able to. Using the association between the context data (4210, 4212) and the sponsored content (4218, 4220), the content part 1 (4202) is further replaced by the sponsored content 1 (4218) and the content part 2 (4204). ) Can be associated with sponsored content 2 (4220). While displaying content portion 1 (4202), content portion 1 (4202) and its associated sponsored content 1 (4218) are in close proximity to the mobile communication facility or in time with each other. Or may be displayed stepwise, sequentially (or sequentially), or in some other display manner that associates content portion 1 (4202) with sponsored content 1 (4218). While displaying the content portion 2 (4204), the content portion 2 (4204) and its associated sponsored content 2 (4220) are in close proximity to the mobile communication facility, or simultaneously in time with each other. Or may be displayed stepwise, sequentially (or continuously), or in some other display manner that associates content portion 2 (4204) with sponsored content 2 (4220). In some embodiments, when moving to a piece of content, an indication of a scene (or stage) change can be sent to a server associated with the mobile communication facility. This scene change can indicate redirection (destination change) to the content portion. Once the redirection is recorded, it is possible to collect context data related to that content portion. This process is asynchronous in that context data can be transmitted from the server in the background, thus minimizing interference (or disruption) to the functionality of the viewed content portion.

  In some embodiments, the asynchronous process used to send the context data may be asynchronous JavaScript + XML (Asynchronous JavaScript + XML: AJAX) or other similar process. AJAX is a cross-platform technology that can be used in web browsers that support different operating systems, different computer architectures, and open standards such as Javascript and DOM. The AJAX system is asynchronous in that it can request and load additional data from the server in the background without interfering with the operation of the display and existing pages. Javascript is a scripting language that can be used to make AJAX function calls. Data can be retrieved using remote scripting in browsers that do not support "XMLHttpRequest", using the "XMLHttpRequest" object that can be used in a scripting language that runs in the browser. In some embodiments, asynchronous content can be formatted in a format other than XML. AJAX and related technologies can exchange a small amount of data with the server as a background feature, thereby eliminating the need to reload the entire web page each time data needs to be retrieved from the server. This can improve the interactivity, speed, function, and usefulness of the web page.

  In some embodiments, the content portions (4202 and 4204) can be displayed on the display of the mobile communication facility. The mobile communication facility can receive the entire content, and can then display only the portion of the content as appropriate when a user action is taken. For example, a user can instruct local software (eg, a browser) on a mobile communication facility to connect to a particular web page, in which case the software can be the entire web page or the A significant part of the web page can be retrieved. The mobile communication facility can then display a portion of the web page on the display. For example, the top of the web page can be displayed on the display, and the mobile communication facility software can wait for an instruction from the user that the user wants to see another part of the content. This indication may be made as a zoom, pan, shift (or move), or other request from the user. The software on the mobile communication facility can monitor which part is currently displayed, how long the part is being displayed, or other parameters relating to the displayed part. The software on the mobile communication facility can in this case send this information to the server in real time, thereby sending other content related to the currently displayed content portion to the mobile communication facility. it can. The server-side software is based on the content portion, context information associated with the content portion, behavior information based on how the mobile communication facility user interacts with the content portion, or other such information Appropriate content (eg, sponsored content, related content, etc.) can be selected. The server side software, when selected, can transmit the content to the mobile communication facility. The mobile communication facility can be configured to receive such information, or can optionally be configured not to receive such content. When the mobile communication facility receives new content related to the currently displayed content portion, the mobile communication facility can store the content for later display (e.g. , When the mobile communication facility is taken to a predetermined location, or based on a certain date and time, or based on some other trigger event or implicit search). In other embodiments, the mobile communication facility can display the newly selected content when the content is received. This new content can be displayed in conjunction with the currently displayed content portion. For example, this new information can be displayed in the same area of the display (eg, in the same window) or can be displayed separately (eg, in a separate window). AJAX is one technique used to gain an understanding of what part is currently displayed from a mobile communication facility. One skilled in the art will appreciate that no software or protocol is required to find out what content portion is currently displayed or to convey relevant information to a server-based application. Many embodiments herein describe sending information related to what content portion is being displayed to the server in real time, but such information is collected at a later point in time. It should be understood that data can be sent in bulk.

  In some embodiments, only a portion of the complete content can be communicated to the mobile communication facility, and other content portions can be communicated to the mobile communication facility upon request. As such, in this embodiment, in contrast to the above example, where a large portion of the content is delivered to the mobile communication facility and then some portion of the content is selected for display on the display of the mobile communication facility, Only a portion of the content is delivered to the mobile communication facility. Other parts of the content can be distributed later. Other parts of the content are in response to a user request (eg, through a pan or zoom request, etc.) or predict what the user wants to see (eg, other content via the AJAX protocol). Can be distributed later by downloading part). In this embodiment, the server program that is responsible for monitoring which parts are displayed on the mobile communication facility is displayed on the mobile communication facility because some parts are distributed to the mobile communication facility. Or it can be inferred that it has been displayed. The server can track the delivery of the content portion based on the type of request. For example, a user's explicit request can be tracked separately from a speculative type request that is intended to predict what content the user wants to see. The selection of relevant content can be based on any type or all types of such content portion requests.

  In some embodiments, the content may be text (such as letters or sentences), images, audio, audiovisual, web pages, web page portions, screen portions, sponsored content, advertisements, ad portions, interactive It can be a function (or a two-way function), subscription content, tagged content, dynamic content, or some other form of content.

  In some embodiments, the context data can be a link structure, a link, an outbound link, an inbound link, keywords, metadata, or some other form of context data.

  In some embodiments, a user of a mobile communication facility may access content 4200 on the New York Times website. The home page of the New York Times website may contain more content than can be simultaneously displayed on the user's mobile communications facility display. For this reason, the user may be forced to view each part of the content of the website in turn. In this example, when the New York Times is first loaded onto the display of a mobile communication facility, content portion 1 (4202) consisting of the main news headline that day, for example, “4th quarter foreclosure increased by 18%”. ) Is displayed. Headline and associated article This article containing this article text can be associated with context data 1 (4210) stored in the context database 4208. For example, there may be a reference to Fannie Mae in an article and the text “Fannie Mae” is an outbound link to Fannie Mae's website. Other examples of contextual data that can be associated with the article include keywords or keyword strings such as “housing”, “housing starts”, “mortgage”, etc. These keywords can be stored in the context database 4208 as context data. Information relating to the contextual data associated with the viewed New York Times article (part 1), associating facility 4214 for selecting sponsored content 1 (4218) associated with the displayed article from sponsored content database 4222. Can be used by. Since this article is related to housing and housing finance, the associated sponsored content 1 (4218) can be advertised as mortgage refinancing, debt management company, REIT (real estate investment trust) investment opportunities, etc. . The associated sponsored content 1 (4218) may then be displayed with the New York Times portion 1 (4202). This portion 1 (4202) and sponsored content 1 (4218) may be simultaneously or in close proximity to each other in time, stepwise, in sequence (or sequentially), or content portion 2 (4204) and sponsor-provided content 2 (4220) may be displayed in some other display manner.

  Continuing with the New York Times example, mobile communications equipment users read an article on the same New York Times web page that offers sports articles after reading an article that says “foreclosure in Q4 increased 18%” It may be desired to see part 2 (4204). To navigate to a sports article, the user can instruct to scroll, zoom, or use some other navigation action to display the sports article on the mobile communication facility. Upon navigating to the sports article, an indication of the change in the scene (or stage) can be sent to a server associated with the mobile communication facility. This scene change can indicate redirection to New York Times Part 2 (4204). Once the redirection to part 2 (4204) has been recorded, context data 2 (4212) associated with part 2 (4204) can be collected. In this example, a New York Times sports article can start with an article about a hockey team. Association facility 4214 may select sponsored content 2 (4220) from sponsored content database 4222 associated with contextual data regarding hockey articles. In this case, the context data includes keywords such as “skate (or skate shoes)” and “skate link” and / or an out-band link to a web page of a specific NHL team. For example, sponsor-provided content 2 (4220) may be an NHL team costume advertisement, an NHL ticket reseller, or the like. Sponsored content 2 (4220) may also be associated with a mobile communication facility such as a location (or location) and / or any other data associated with the user as described herein. This makes it possible to better target the sponsor-provided content 2 (4220) to the user of the mobile communication facility. In this case, the sponsored content 2 (4220) is within 5 miles of the billing address associated with the mobile communication facility or the mobile when viewing the sponsored content 2 (4220) For example, the available time of a skating rink within 5 miles from the current location of the communication facility.

  Referring to FIG. 43, in some embodiments, a user of a mobile communication facility can access content 4300, such as a web page, for viewing on the display of the mobile communication facility. In one example, the content 4300 may exceed the capacity of the display to display the entire content 4300 in the display, in which case the user of the mobile communication facility initially After viewing (4302), the user is forced to move (or operate) to view the content portion 2 (4304). Content portion 1 (4302) can be associated with behavior data 1 (4310). Content portion 2 (4304) can be associated with behavior data 2 (4312). Behavior data 1 (4310) and behavior data 2 (4312) can be stored in the behavior database 4308. Using the association facility 4314, the sponsor-provided content 1 (4318) related to the behavior data 1 (4310) and the sponsor-provided content 2 (4320) related to the behavior data 2 (4312) are selected from the sponsor-provided content database 4322. be able to. Using the association between the behavior data (4310, 4312) and the sponsored content (4318, 4320), the content part 1 (4302) is further changed to the sponsored content 1 (4318) and the content part 2 (4304). ) Can be associated with sponsored content 2 (4320). While displaying content portion 1 (4324), content portion 1 (4302) and its associated sponsored content 1 (4318) are in close proximity to a mobile communication facility or in time with each other. Or may be displayed stepwise, sequentially (or continuously), or in some other display manner that associates content portion 1 (4302) with sponsored content 1 (4318).

  45 and 46, in some embodiments, the monetization platform described herein can be integrated to support multiple mobile ad formats from multiple ad networks and / or systems. Enable type (or integrated) multi-screen ad servers. In this case, the advertisement format may include, but is not limited to, banner, text, audio, video, graphics (such as diagrams), multimedia, or some other advertisement format. As shown in FIG. 47, the monetization platform can be associated with a profile management platform (PMP). In some embodiments, a monetization platform can be enabled to select and target available advertising content from across multiple advertising inventory. This selection and targeting of advertising content at the monetization platform may be based at least in part on a rules engine within the monetization platform. This selection and targeting of advertising content can be based at least in part on demographic data, contextual data, behavioral data, or some other type of data related to mobile users and / or carriers. .

  Referring to FIG. 48, in some embodiments, a monetization platform can be used to utilize context and behavior targeting techniques. In one embodiment, in order to display targeted advertisements, context and behavior targeting techniques can be used to decrypt the context of the page the user is viewing. In another embodiment, context and behavior targeting techniques can be used to enhance (or improve) the user profile. This will allow you to build a robust user profile. To enable understanding of the page context (understanding the page context and context) and accurate page content, the search algorithm can be used for cyclic (or crawling), entity extraction (entity) extraction), query classification, or any other enhancement process. In some embodiments, query stream analysis is used in combination with terminology classification to understand not only the user's interest at the moment, but also the user's interest over a period of time, and Can be built. Generating behavior profiles can increase the relevance of mobile advertising.

  In some embodiments, the monetization platform works with a mobile operator (such as a mobile operator) to act as a centralized (or centrally controlled) mobile advertising hub to meet the needs of mobile operators, users, and advertisers. You can balance and serve mobile ads while generating traffic. The monetization platform can integrate multiple ad networks and servers with a single integration. The cross-inventory selection process can dynamically select relevant and profitable ads from mobile ad networks and other integrated ad networks for display.

  In some embodiments, the monetization platform can integrate multiple ad networks and servers. The primary ad server is a premium (or expensive) for operators (telephone carriers, etc., the same below) portals, publishers (such as ad distributors) websites, client applications, or any other application. It can function as an inventory reservation and delivery system. This allows the operator or publisher to sell expensive inventory directly. Multiple advertising networks can be integrated (or integrated) into the monetization platform and can be used to supplement direct sales activities. In some embodiments, the monetization platform can be integrated with multiple local (or local) advertising providers in multiple markets. In some embodiments, excess operator / publisher inventory or run-of-site (ROS) inventory may be made available in the advertising network. In some other embodiments, a paid search system can be integrated into the monetization platform for searching and browsing inventory. The monetization platform's ad provider application programming interface (API) makes it easy to integrate new ad providers without exposing code.

  In some embodiments, the monetization platform optimization engine may select an appropriate advertisement for a given ad spot (or ad space; the same applies below). The criteria that can be used to select the appropriate advertisement can be the type of advertisement and the advertising provider targeting the advertising spot, or some other criterion. This criterion can include business rules that apply to the advertising spot. The business rules include ad priority setting, keyword / domain blacklisting, adult ad filtering (screening or removal), ad provider weighting, default ad provider setting when no ads are returned, Or any other business rule can be included. The advertisement provider weighting is such that advertisements are served according to a specified assignment. In some embodiments, the monetization platform may use past user behavior and profile information to determine which advertisement providers and advertisements are worth serving.

  In some embodiments, a yield optimization program as described herein may be based on context (WAP page), consumer behavior, advertising revenue expectations, or some other characteristic. , Which ads are relevant (or appropriate) and profitable.

  In some embodiments, the profile management platform is anonymously tracked users based on browsing (such as web pages), search, interaction, purchasing behavior, or any other user behavior Can be placed in one or more segments. The profile can be augmented with demographic information that can be loaded into a behavioral database. In some embodiments, an operator or publisher can pass a segment or other profile information when requesting an advertisement. The segment or profile information can be passed to an advertising provider that can use the segment or profile information to provide targeted advertising.

  In some embodiments, the monetization platform can be enabled to change the behavior of the advertisement without changing the advertisement tag. This can be done by using advertising spots. The advertisement spot can be a place where an advertisement can be returned, set by an operator or publisher. Each configured advertising spot can include an advertisement type and an advertising provider that can target a given advertising spot. An advertising provider can target a given advertising spot. An ad spot can also include business rules that can determine how to select an ad for the ad spot. The ad type, ad provider, and business rules can be changed in the monetization platform without changing the publisher's ad request for an ad spot. This can ensure that operators and publishers can make changes to their advertising spots without making changes to their site. This change can be made through the management console and can take effect in real time.

  In some embodiments, the monetization platform may provide operators and publishers access to the monetization platform. The monetization platform API can provide a programmatic interface to allow operators and publishers to retrieve multiple ad types. In some embodiments, the programmatic interface can report advertising activity to the monetization platform. Operators and publishers may need to put together ad tags once and can access them when they connect online to existing or new ad providers.

  In some embodiments, the monetization platform may have an architecture that includes a monetization platform API, a monetization platform application server, an optimization engine, a provider management platform, a user interface, and a publisher / operator application server.

  In some embodiments, the monetization platform API allows publishers and mobile operators to request and retrieve advertisements and report advertising activity to the monetization platform. The monetization platform application server can receive API requests, retrieve appropriate advertisements from various providers, and return the results. The optimization engine can make decisions based on the most appropriate targeting and available inventory. This determination can be made for the advertisement provider to be queried and the advertisement to be selected for a given request. The profile management platform can collect search activity, browsing behavior, advertising interactions, and any specified demographic or profile information. This data can be passed along with the advertisement request and can be augmented by a data source that retains ownership. Make the monetization platform user interface a management interface for setting business rules, weighting, creating ad spots, integrating new ad providers, managing profiles and reporting Can do.

  In some embodiments, the monetization platform can retrieve advertisements from various sources and select appropriate advertisements based on business rules, behavior, targeting, or some other criteria. These sources can include banner ad servers, paid search ad systems, ad networks, and other third party ad providers. By integrating the advertising provider into the monetization platform, operators and publishers do not need to integrate with multiple advertising providers.

  In some embodiments, the publisher / operator application server may request advertisements that are specific to the advertisement implementation. The publisher / operator application server can place the advertisement in a mobile web page or client application. Placed advertisements can be viewed by mobile subscribers.

  In some embodiments, the monetization platform can utilize a Profile Management Platform (PMP) to access user specific targeting information. PMP can provide a robust and scalable (or scalable) architecture for the generation, management, and distribution of segmentation (or segmentation) based on user profiles and behavior. This platform can integrate data from many different data sources, both internal and external to the PMP, and / or the operator's own. The PMP can include a series of enhancement modules that can leverage the monetization platform's unique understanding of mobile search and browsing-based (or browsing-based) behavior. This allows the platform to extract meaning from the search pattern and classify the search and browsing data at the time of sale. The module can process raw search and browsing data and can monetize platforms to enhance user profiles with additional information that can provide higher quality and granular user segmentation. It can be so. This additional information can include related keywords.

  In some embodiments, generating a user profile in a PMP can include data collection, normalization (or normalization), enrichment, warehousing (or data warehousing or data storage), and analysis. .

  In some embodiments, data collection can include accepting data into the system both in real time and batch processing. The profile management platform can integrate profiling data from any source. These sources can include search streams, ad interactions, browsing activity, operator CRM data, and other third party data. In some embodiments, the search stream can include a query performed by a particular user, a query timestamp, and post-query activity. Search stream data can provide insight into general user interest over time and can reveal immediate and changing user needs. Search stream data can identify long-term and real-time concerns that can provide time-dependent (or time-sensitive) targeting opportunities. Search data can be collected by the profile management platform via search deployment and can be captured from external sources and inferred from gateway activities to capture off-portal search activities Can do. Examples of basic data collected, analyzed, and enhanced by the profile management platform include user ID, source, location, query, and URL. The user ID that can be collected is a common unique identifier. The source that can and can be collected can be "where the search was performed". Examples of locations where searches can be performed include portals, storefronts, and the like. The queries that can be collected can be keywords entered by the user. The URL that can be collected can be the URL that is clicked on the search results page. The location that can be collected can be the geographic location where the query was performed.

  In some embodiments, ad interaction as a source may include a profile management platform that collects data regarding a given user's interaction with both search and display of the advertisement. Advertising interactions can allow the system to extend knowledge about the user to include consideration for the type of advertisement that the user is most likely to respond to. This information can be analyzed and provided as an element in the summarized user profile. Examples of basic data sets collected by the profile management platform for ad interactions include user ID, provider, context, ad type, ad details, time stamp, trigger, and the user that can be collected The ID can be a common unique identifier. Providers that can be collected can be advertisement sources. An example of an advertising source can be a primary advertising server. The context may be “location where the advertisement is displayed”. Examples of contexts can be sports portals, third party sites, etc. The type of advertisement can be the details of the advertisement (or the detailed contents of the advertisement). Examples of advertisement details can be text, static graphics (stationary graphics such as figures and photos), interactivity (or interactive), and the like. The time stamp can be the time when the advertisement is displayed. The trigger can be “something when an advertisement is served in response to something”. Examples of triggers can be search, context, behavior, demographic information, etc. Advertising interaction can represent the success of advertising. Examples of successful ads can be clicks, conversions, etc.

  In some embodiments, browsing activity (or browse activity) as a source can include incorporating both on-portal and off-portal browsing data (or browse data) into a user profile. On-portal browsing behavior (browsing behavior) can be incorporated via advertising tags on the operator's portal. Off-portal browsing behavior (browsing behavior) can be accessed via integration into the operator's gateway. Off-portal browsing behavior can be a unique operator asset that the PMP can analyze to improve the relationship between the operator's search experience and the yield of advertisements managed by the operator. An important capability of PMP can be the ability to analyze browsing traffic (browsing traffic) and understand the content and nature of the page being visited. This can be done through an enrichment process.

  In some embodiments, operator CRM data, and other third party data, can include PMP incorporating operator specific CRM data (eg, demographic data), as well as existing segmentation data. . The operator can pass explicit targeting information such as gender and age that can be used for targeting and also to enhance the user profile. The embedding of operator specific data can be supported by the basic platform, but the embedding can be specific to each operator because the nature and source of the captured data can be specific to the professional service. Work may be required. If the monetization platform provides the operator with a search and / or advertising solution, this data can be included in the profile process and no additional integration (or integration) can be required. If no search and / or advertising solution is provided, or if additional operator-specific data (eg, gateway browsing data or demographic data) can be included, the PMP can provide real-time data collection. Both web service APIs and batch processing based supply can be provided. The monetization platform works with external data providers to determine the best way to collect data based on the amount of data collected, price (or value), and time dependency (or time sensitivity). Can be determined.

  In some embodiments, the PMP can include multiple modules for normalizing (or normalizing) data collected from different data sources. In some embodiments, the PMP can utilize a common user ID to combine user data from different sources. In one example, a common trusted user ID already exists. In some examples, a hashed / encrypted user ID can be utilized from several sources. The normalization process for user IDs is to decode (or decrypt) the user ID for compilation (or editing) and integrate the algorithm or algorithm key into another data source to access the basic user ID. Can do. In some embodiments, the PMP can utilize data to record time (ie, press a time stamp) in a known format and time zone. The time stamp normalization process can convert all inputs to the expected format and perform any time zone conversion based on knowledge of the data source. In some embodiments, not all data from a given source is provided to the PMP. In one example, a sample of gateway access data (off-portal browsing activity) may be provided. This knowledge (eg, 50% of random activity is provided) can be incorporated into raw data from a given source, and this knowledge can be used in PMP analysis algorithms to weight data and Segmentation quality can be improved.

  In some embodiments, enrichment can include performing an added value process (and a process for adding value) of the collected data. The enhancement module within the PMP can incorporate an understanding of the unique module user and mobile content to improve the quality of the information contained within the user profile. Examples of enhancement modules include URL classification (or URL categorization), entity extraction, query clustering, query classification (or query categorization), query differentiation, blacklisting, user Opt-out (eg, user exclusion) and context targeting support, or some other enhancement module.

  In some embodiments, URL categorization includes PMP that utilizes patrol, search, and classification techniques to understand the nature of the content being accessed by the user. Can be included. The PMP can maintain a database of URL classifications and the external service allows a new URL to be entered into the database when an unknown site / URL is provided as input. This service can utilize an editorially constructed training set and learning algorithm to automatically classify unknown URLs. In this case, categorized metadata can be included in the raw user behavior data and can be utilized by a profile analysis algorithm to improve the quality of user segmentation.

  In some embodiments, entity extraction may include a PMP search algorithm that analyzes the accessed URL content to determine a common entity (eg, name, location) within the text of the page. This information can be purified and included in raw user behavior data for analysis. This process can be extended to include sentiment analysis to determine the nature of the content associated with the entity. In one example, a user may frequently access information about a particular type of car, but most of its content may be negative for that car. This entity extraction process can be a valuable input to keywords associated with the user profile.

  In some embodiments, query clustering may include processing and summarizing the user's query stream for analysis as well as incorporation into the user profile. PMP can leverage the search experience and techniques of monetization platforms to provide advanced query analysis methods. The query clustering component can serve to group similar queries together for final categorization. The clustering component can utilize similar search tools to group similar terms and concepts based on historical analysis of millions of user searches. Spelling correction techniques can be used to correct the query before categorization.

  In some embodiments, query categorization can include grouping user searches into a set of defined query categories. PMP can use advanced search techniques to assign user queries to a defined set of categories. This process uses both editorially defined training sets to associate popular keywords with categories, URL categorization capabilities, and search-based processing that relies on access to large web indexes. can do. These two processes can obtain a query that is not editorially categorized and performs a search of the query against a web index. In this case, the returned URL can be weighted and categorized to provide a category for a given query.

  In some embodiments, query distinction can include attempting to identify a characteristic term from a common featureless term. Many queries may not provide segmentation or targeting values, but other queries may provide insights into user behavior or changes in user behavior that present a large targeting opportunity. This knowledge allows removing featureless queries from the user profile (or lower weighting) and allows higher weighting of more featured queries in profile analysis. Can do.

  In some embodiments, blacklisting may include an operator defining a class of content for which user behavior is not tracked. For example, an operator may require that neither secure site access (ie, https) nor adult site access be tracked and used in user profile generation. By default, the monetization platform can exclude adult search (adult search) terms and access to adult sites from profile generation.

  In some embodiments, user opt-out may include a PMP that supports user-level opt-out (eg, exclusion) from profiling. The PMP can accept, in batch format, a list of user IDs associated with users that have been opted out of behavior targeting (or that may have been opted out). In some embodiments, based on implementation and specific market (market) and / or operator requirements, the monetization platform may implement an opt-out request and associate it with a given user ID. Exclude all data from the collection and prevent it from being stored as data. In another embodiment, the monetization platform may enable an opt-out request to collect and process data related to the user ID, but generate a summarized user profile, Does not allow distribution for a given user ID.

  In some embodiments, context targeting support can include utilizing data collected by the PMP by a context targeting engine within the monetization platform. Query clustering data and query categorization data compiled (or edited) by the PMP can be output for use within the context analysis and yield optimization engine. Access to this data allows the monetization platform to include keyword optimization as part of the yield optimization algorithm for contextually targeted advertisements. For example, if the context analysis engine determines that “stock information” is the theme of a given page, it uses keyword clustering data and categorization data to make “investment advice”, “trading strategy”, etc. The keywords considered by the yield optimization algorithm can be expanded to include the relevant keywords. This technique may allow the monetization platform context targeting process to select advertisements with the highest yield possible.

  In some embodiments, the warehousing includes a PMP that utilizes a robust (or robust) data warehouse that is constructed to provide real-time and on-demand access. The platform can be built with the latest data warehouse technology. The platform can be a core component of the architecture that provides visibility and scalability. The data warehouse can be accessed by a user profile analyzer to generate a summarized user profile that will eventually be available on the monetization platform as well as other third party platforms. A data warehouse can enable summary level reporting that provides insight into the quality of archived (or archived) data. One example of the evaluation criteria included in this report is the total number of all users, i.e. the users who have data in the data warehouse, the profiled user, i.e. having enough data to be placed in the segment The total number of users, new, i.e. the profile histogram is new (i.e. the user data was last updated recently), and the profile depth, i.e. profile histogram features (e.g. , Segments and keywords).

  In some embodiments, the analysis can include generating a consumable user profile utilizing the raw data that has been normalized, purified, and enhanced from previous steps. The analysis portion of the PMP can include two general components. The first component can allow for defining segments in the PMP, and the second component can be the actual analysis module that performs the computational steps necessary to generate the user profile. it can. The segment component makes it possible to define N top level user segments (eg music or sports) and N second highest level segments (eg pop or football) Can do.

A segment definition can consist of high-level components, including but not limited to:
Name and description: The segment name can be exposed to the profile and the services that use (or consume) the segment marketing description.
Action weighting: Action weighting defines the relative importance of different user behaviors (eg, click, browse, search) when determining whether a given user should be associated with a segment It can be a configuration that can be (or defined).
Categorical relationship: A categorical relationship can define the degree of similarity (or degree of affinity) between a browse (URL) and search (query) category and a given segment.
Time Dependency (or Sensitivity): Time dependency can define an overall decay curve for how fast raw user data can be considered when determining a score for a given segment. This capability exists to generate a time window that can give increased weight to raw user data in scoring the entire segment. This allows the PMP to define segments that can be extremely sensitive to changes in user behavior and take advantage of changes in user behavior (eg holiday shoppers) over a limited time period. Can be quickly associated with a given user.
Minimum trust: The minimum trust can be the lowest level of correlation with the user behavior obtained to associate a segment with a given user.

  In some embodiments, the PMP supports multiple segments. A balance between segmentation and range can be maintained. The monetization platform can work with the operator to achieve the right balance between segment granularity (targeting), segment scope (traffic), and available advertisers (scope or coverage) . While PMP's two-level segmentation capability can try finer-grained segments, the top-level segmentation has no impact on targeting and ad delivery.

  In some embodiments, PMP profile generation may serve to analyze user-level raw data and perform segment assignment, keyword assignment, and metadata assignment.

  In some embodiments, the segment assignment can be based on the segment definition, and the analysis module that scores the user (eg, scores the user) can be based on the segment definition, The module associates zero or more segments with the user, along with a confidence score. The segment allocation process can be configured to run periodically as required by the operator and / or the rate of change (or rate of change) of the underlying raw data. The segment allocation process can be configured to analyze the behavior of each user for a different schedule than other users (eg, segment analysis can be performed more frequently for more active users) .

  In some embodiments, the keyword assignment process can include analyzing user-level raw data and associating a configurable number of keywords / key phrases with a particular user profile along with a confidence score. Keyword assignment can be based on analysis performed during the enhanced portion of the data collection process, and final analysis and roll-up can be performed during the keyword assignment phase. The keyword assignment process can be configured to run periodically as required by the operator and / or the rate of change (or rate of change) of the underlying raw data. The keyword assignment process can be configured to analyze each user's behavior against a different schedule than other users (eg, segment analysis can be performed more frequently for more active users) .

  In some embodiments, metadata assignment can include analysis and rollup of data that is not associated with a segment or keyword. Profile characteristics considered may include location (or location), demographic information provided by an operator or third party, and user-specific interaction rates with the data source.

  In some embodiments, the PMP user profile definition may generate individual user profiles that can be accessed. User profile characteristics include user ID, top level segment (s), second highest segment (s), segment strength, keyword (s), keyword strength, new appearance Segment, advertising interaction, demographic information, predicted demographic information, billing location, primary location. The user ID is encrypted and sent only by profile batch distribution (or batch distribution). The top level segments are zero to many top level segments associated with the profile. The second highest segment is zero to many second highest segments related to the profile. The segment strength is a numerical score (such as a score) that can represent a correlation with a segment. The keywords are 0 to many keywords / key phrases related to the profile. The keyword strength is a numerical score (such as a score) that can represent a correlation with a keyword. A newly appearing segment is a segment that is not currently associated with a user but can be assigned the suggested (or suggested) recent behavior of the user in the near future. The ad interaction summarizes the interaction rate of text, display, and interactivity (interactive or interactive). The demographic information is demographic information (eg, age and gender) provided by an operator or a third party. The predicted demographic information is demographic data obtained by the PMP based on user behavior. The billing location is the billing location provided by the operator. The primary location is a “home” location based on an analysis of the user's location when the user is interacting with an external system (eg, searching).

  In some embodiments, the PMP may provide a comprehensive security layer and multiple access methods for sharing user profiles with monetization platforms and third parties specified by the operator. it can.

  In some embodiments, the PMP can support two levels of access restrictions. API access restrictions can include exposing user profiles via a real-time web service API as well as a batch-based feed-based scheduler mechanism. Access to these services can be restricted based on IP restrictions and authorization keys. In some embodiments, IPs in a pre-configured list of allowed IPs can access the PMP user profile service. This list of IPs can be provided prior to system use. A valid authentication key can be passed as part of the profile request. The authentication key can be unique based on the requesting IP and can be updated frequently. Using the authentication key, the request can be mapped to an account to determine profile level restrictions.

  In some embodiments, for a given account, PMP may support the concept of profile level restrictions. Profile level restrictions can define a set of user profile characteristics that a given account can access. For example, an account can be created that can provide access to the top level segments and keywords, while allowing full access to the characteristics contained in the user profile Can create an account. This allows the PMP to distribute user profile data at the level requested by the requesting party, and allows the operator to have different levels of third-party consumers of that profile. A mechanism for providing service / targeting can be provided.

  In some embodiments, the PMP can support both a real-time web service API and a file-based batch delivery mechanism. The web service API can request that a valid user ID and authentication key be passed to the system. If the authentication key is confirmed to be valid based on the requesting IP, the PMP can look up the user profile for that given user ID. The corresponding user profile can then be retrieved to return the allowed profile characteristics for the given account. PMP can support batch-based delivery (or batch delivery) of multiple user profiles. This service allows only encrypted user IDs to be used by third parties accessing the user profile, and the third party has a user ID in the third party environment. Additional professional service work can be required to ensure that we have an effective mechanism for managing and secure processes. In addition, operator approval may be required prior to batch distribution of user profiles.

  In order to allow segment-by-segment prediction and targeting, the monetization platform can send the segment information to an advertising provider that accepts subscriber segment information. When an advertisement request comes from an operator, the segment information can be automatically sent to the appropriate advertisement provider. This can enable retrieving campaigns (such as promotional activities) directed to those segments, as well as segment-by-segment predictions for advertising providers that support the segments.

In some embodiments, the process of sending (or passing) a segment from the PMP to the MP is as follows.
Ad server: The monetization platform can send a subscriber segment with an ad request using the key name / value function in the ad server. Next, ads are returned that target segments that can be passed. If there is no advertisement targeted to the passed segment, an advertisement not targeting the segment can be returned. The same is true for demographic data passed with ad requests. The ad server can use the data in the key name / value pair to make an inventory forecast (or inventory preparation) for each segment. Prediction can also be performed for a combination of segments or a combination of segments and demographic information or information provided by other operators.
Paid Search: Keywords related to subscriber segments or page context can be sent to a paid search system. If there are advertisements directed to the keyword, those advertisements are returned. For advertisements that are displayed with the results provided by the user search, specific search keywords can be sent to the paid search and matching advertisements can be returned.
Other ad providers: For other ad providers that can support targeting, the monetization platform can send segment or other subscriber information as a parameter to the ad request (ad provider supports this feature) If you have). This can be done during the implementation of a new advertising provider.

In some embodiments, targeting advertising content may include integrating monetization platform targeting capabilities into major advertising providers. Targeting campaigns for segments or other subscriber information may depend on the capabilities of the advertising provider.
