Search engines and hebrew - revisited

Judit Bar-Ilan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In previous studies, carried out in 2002 [3] and in 2005 [2] we showed, that Google, the most popular search engine in Israel, does not take into account any of the morphological complexities of Hebrew, while Morfix, a Hebrew search engine, handles Hebrew very well, but has limited coverage and freshness. In the current study we revisit these search engines and explore the situation as of 2007. Our findings show some improvement in Google’s Hebrew retrieval capabilities.
