A recent query-log mining approach for query recommendation is based on Query Flow Graphs, a markov-chain representation of the query reformulation process followed by users of Web Search Engines trying to satisfy their information needs. In this paper we aim at extending this model by providing methods for dealing with evolving data. In fact, users' interests change over time, and the knowledge extracted from query logs may suffer an aging effect as new interesting topics appear. Starting from this observation validated experimentally, we introduce a novel algorithm for updating an existing query flow graph. The proposed solution allows the recommendation model to be kept always updated without reconstructing it from scratch every time, by incrementally merging efficiently the past and present data.
