Next up (first post was Yahoo patents) is the round up of search patents of interest from the folks at Microsoft. These, as you might imagine, take on new importance since we've likely seen the last of Yahoo as far as search is concerned.

Semantic and NLP

Relevance signals

Link related

Behavioural Data

Query Analysis

Ranking methods

Recommendation engine

Systemic Elements

Universal Search


Web Spam

Named Entities

Geo Local


And there we have it as far as the MS stuff is concerned. Next up we will put up the patent awards for the big dog, Google.
