An attempt was made to compare and contrast results from previous studies of Excite queries' data sets, each containing over 1 million queries submitted by over 200,000 Excite users collected on 16 September 1997 and 20 December 1999. As a result, it was determined how public Web searching changed during that 2-year time period.
