Students, as Internet users, expect quality results in terms of relevance, format and response time, and are more concerned about quality than quantity. On the other hand, the main goal of the search engine system is to retrieve information which is supposed to be relevant to the student's request in the shortest time possible. New techniques in the area of information retrieval by search engines are developed. This paper starts by describing the problems faced by students in their searches. A query optimization method is proposed consisting of extracting some information, including IP address, from the server log file to be used in later searches. This enhancement of search results is expected to improve the relevance of information and consequently the reliance of students on the search engine.
