Search Pattern: Classifying Search Engines from a New Perspective
New types of search engines are emerging to overcome defects of traditional search engines. What the next search engine should be? It is an efficient way to classify and compare current search engines to find possible answers. This paper first defines search pattern as the combination of index structure, user profile, and interaction mechanism, which can model a search engine and help us classify search engines more essentially. Then, current search engines are classified and compared from the view of search pattern to find what the next search engine should be. Finally, a new search pattern for next generation search engine is proposed by synthesizing the advantages of different search patterns, which can help developing new search engines and may be the possible direction of the next search engine.
