I'm working on a project where I must observe form submissions in websites and detect a search engine if a form is used consistently.
I don't really want any help with coding this. I just want some ideas for an algorithm.
Like, for example if I were to come to Daniweb and search for something everyday, after sometime I must be suggested to use Daniweb as a search engine.
A typical algorithm would count the number of times I searched in Daniweb and if it exceeds a number, it should detect the Daniweb search form as a search engine. This seems too trivial.
I have not the experience to tell if this would practically work and produce neat results.
Assume I have the technical ability and resources (like form history, databases) to implement any algo.
Please suggest any ideas you have.
