Abstract

The evaluation of search engine effectiveness has gained considerable momentum in the last few years. The effectiveness, measures the ability of the search engine to find the relevant information for the given user query. In recent years considerable research efforts have been devoted in developing semantic search engines aims to improve the traditional information search and retrieval process. We have seen number of semantic search engine projects and frameworks being implemented in various domains. In this paper, we have provided the results of retrieval effectiveness of Semantic Search engine against Keyword search engine using TREC Style Average Precision (TSAP) measure with little modification.
