Interesting stuff - I'm pretty sure this is already happening for short searches:
(a) receiving a search query; (b) determining a first related query related to the search query; (c) determining a first article associated with the search query; (d) determining a first ranking score for the first article based at least in part on data associated with the first related query.

they give a good example on how the invention will associate a related query based on the proximity of multiple searches:
For example, when a user 112a types in a first search query such as "infinity auto" and then inputs a second search query such as "infiniti" immediately afterward, the related query processor 138 may define a relationship between the first search query and the second search query. In this example, the relationship or proximity between search queries would be defined as "back-to-back" or consecutive. Thus, for the query "infinity auto," relationships to queries "infiniti," "luxury car," "quality luxury car," and "Japanese quality luxury car" may be defined if a user 112a inputs these queries immediately following the initial query "infinity auto."

Reading the reference link above in this thread, begs the question: Will Duplicate Meta Keyword tags also increase the likelihood of a duplicate filter "penalty" being imposed ? Many say that the Keyword Meta Tag is now superfluous, but can it have negative effects if it is duplicated across pages ?
