YP Talk - Newsletter Archive - My English Teacher Would Be Horrified

When I asked Rick Avery at WAND, a provider of sophisticated underlying word taxonomy that is used to categorize and search data, as to whether I was unique, his comments seemed to indicate I'm really not: "40% of users searches come back with no viable result. The reason user have such a problem was that the site did not recognize queries being input. In those failed searches, there was no way to return a result to the user because they couldn't associate the query to a specific business or YP headings. Hence, companies like WAND work to create huge buckets of terms that point to a Yellow Page heading so they can return an appropriate list of businesses. Avery noted that when "WAND taxonomy was used by a site, the no viable results searches dropped to 12%."
