ABSTRACT
Blog/news search engines are very important channels to
reach information about the real-time happenings. In this
paper, we study the popular queries collected over one year
period and compare their search results returned by a blog
search engine (i.e., Technorati) and a news search engine
(i.e., Google News). We observed that the numbers of hits
returned by the two search engines for the same set of queries
were highly correlated, suggesting that blogs often provide
commentary to current events reported in news. As many
popular queries are related to some events, we further ob-
served a high cohesiveness among the returned search results
for these queries.
