A search result ranker may be trained with automatically-generated samples. In an example embodiment, user interests are inferred from user interactions with search results for a particular query so as to determine respective relevance scores associated with respective query-identifier pairs of the search results. Query-identifier-relevance score triplets are formulated from the respective relevance scores associated with the respective query-identifier pairs. The query-identifier-relevance score triplets are submitted as training samples to a search result ranker. The search result ranker is trained as a learning machine with multiple training samples of the query-identifier-relevance score triplets.
