Although query log analysis provides crucial insights about Web users' search interests, conducting such analyses is almost impossible for some languages, as large-scale and public query logs are quite scarce. In this study, we first survey the existing query collections in Turkish and discuss their limitations. Next, we adopt a novel strategy to obtain a set of Turkish queries using the query autocompletion services from the four major search engines and provide the first large-scale analysis of Web queries and their results in Turkish.
