Collating Search and IR Technical Papers

Story Text:

OK, it is time we had a listing of all the prominent tech articles related to search and IR. I know these things make Nick groan, but I know some of you folks out there like this stuff. If you do feel like adding please ensure they are novel and not some webmasters re-hashing of old ground in order to get a free link.

This is by no means an authoritative list, but perhaps we can make that :-)

So here is my starter for 10 of relevant articles:

A lot has changed since then but still the basis of what we know today
Backrub (Brin and Page)
The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine

Krishna Bharat
Hilltop: A Search Engine based on Expert Documents

More from Krishna Bharat

Jason Duke
Hilltop in Plain English

SEO Rank Website
Analysis and Implications of Hilltop Algorithm

Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI)
Nice website covering the basics

Telcordia Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI)

Chaomei Chen
