While general web search has been dominant in the past few decades, a wide variety of so-called vertical search tasks and applications have also come to the fore. A vertical search application uses background knowledge about the context in which search is taking place (e.g. about the user population, the tasks they wish to perform, their information needs, the objects in the collection made available to them). This knowledge can inform adaptation of retrieval algorithms and evaluation methodology, to provide a better ranking of information objects, or to organise search results more effectively. Richard Berendsen studies vertical search engines for finding people, papers and posts.
