This paper intends to present a straightforward, extensive, and noise resistant method for efficiently tagging a web query, submitted to a search engine, with proper category labels. These labels are intended to represent the closest categories related to the query which can ultimately be used to enhance the results of any typical search engine by either restricting the results to matching categories or enriching the query itself. The presented method effectively rules out noise words within a query, forms the optimal keyword packs using a density function, and returns a set of category labels which represent the common topics of the given query using Wikipedia category hierarchy.
