Abstract: Collaborative Web search (CWS) is a community-based approach to Web search that supports the sharing of past result selections among a group of related searchers so as to personalize result-lists to reflect the preferences of the community as a whole. In this paper, we present the results of a recent live-user trial which demonstrates how CWS elicits high levels of participation and how the search activities of a community of related users form a type of social search network.
