Abstract

Retrieving and viewing activities of web pages of search engine users were examined. The relationship between sessions, queries and pages viewed was also analyzed. It was found that web search engine users viewed only two to three documents per query. The analysis of the results showed that web users can expect a precision of about 50% meaning that one out of every two of the web documents viewed would be relevant to their query.
