Server logs of search engines store traces of queries submitted by users, which include queries themselves along with Web pages selected in their answers. The same is true in Web site logs where queries and later actions are recorded from search engine referrers or from an internal search box. In this paper we present two applications based in analyzing and clustering queries. The first one suggest changes to improve the text and structure of a Web site and the second does relevance ranking boosting and query recommendation in search engines.
