Content suggestions can be ranked by using calendar data in addition to, for example, travel and map data. First, the system receives calendar data input from the user containing information such as business, leisure, and other activities scheduled to occur on certain dates and times. Then, the system receives travel data from the user. For example, the user might book a round trip flight to and from a certain city scheduled to occur on specific dates and times. The system then uses calendar data in addition to, for example, travel and map data to identify suggestions for lodging, dining, or other pertinent activities convenient for the user. Specifically, the improved process uses calendar data to signal, filter, and generate optimally ranked results based on the user's specific location on a given date and time, making the search process more efficient and convenient for the user.
