Steam Labs Search Experiment 4.1: Query Expansion
Now We're Thinking with Queries In this experiment, Query Expansion, we improve Steam Search by treating tags more like a human would: using logic! Take the three tags RTS, Real-Time, and Strategy, for instance. If a game is tagged RTS but not Real-Time and Strategy, a search for Real-Time + Strategy won’t find that game using Steam's existing Search tech. Query Expansion fixes that.
You can experience our new Search Results - including those surfaced thanks to Query Expansion - when you visit Steam Labs Experiment 004.1: Search Query Expansion. As always, we’d love your feedback; You can let us know what you think of your new Search Results in the discussions.
Read on to learn about how Query Expansion gives better search results. Improving Search Results with Query Expansion Let’s say you're hankering to play a 3D Platformer, so you select the 3D and Platformer tags in Steam Search.
