A method, computer-readable medium, and system for automatic generation of a search query are disclosed. A semantic key may be automatically recognized in a first search query, thereby allowing a second search query to be automatically generated based on the first search query. A first search may be performed using the second search query. Search results generated responsive to the first search may include one or more instances of at least one semantic sub-key associated with the semantic key. In this manner, more relevant search results may be returned while relieving the user of manually entering the semantic key separately from the search query keywords and/or demarcating the semantic key and the search query keywords.
