Search engines give the same results for the same query. They do not consider that a user’s topics of interest may diverge at different times even if the query terms are the same. This paper presents the findings of a study into how different topics of interest of a user are influenced by time. The results show that most of the users have time sensitive search patterns, indicating that they have different topics of interest that are dominant at different times.
