The SearchLog sample data



The SearchLog is a small dataset that represents "sessions" that a user has when performing a search on a web search engine. Each row represents a session for a specific search query,


The SearchLog.tsv file doesn't contain a header row so we'll have to document the columns below in order of their appearance

  • UserId - this is an integer representing an anonymized user
  • Start - when started a session with the search engine
  • Region - What geographical region the user is searching from
  • Query - What the user searched for
  • Duration - How long their search session lasted
  • Urls - A semicolon-separated list All the URLs that were shown to the user in the session
  • ClickedUrls - A subset of Urls that the user actually clicked on (also a semicolon-separated list)

Automatically downloading the searchlog dataset

This PowerShell script will automatically download the file for you:

$webclient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient
$mydocs = [environment]::getfolderpath("mydocuments")
$url = ""
$basename = Split-Path $url -Leaf
$output_filename = Join-Path $mydocs $basename
$webclient.DownloadFile($url,$output_filename )
