Subject: Search result not optimal...


I need your help. I've no idea left.
I'm using lucene since last year and it's great!

I know the different parts of lucene and how to use them but I have one problem left.
Lucene is running in my online shop and does a good job. Now I want to optimize the search
result from my search function with a single search field, where the user can input anything
he wants to search for.
Since now I'm combining different search approaches to get the results like phrase and fuzzy
search. the problem is I get always a huge resultset back.
I want a smaller result list with the best hits. I can achieve this when I leave fuzzy. Then
I've got a great search result but when the user types something wrong the result is empty.

There must be a solution to get a small resultset with great score and also combine it with
fuzzy search if the hits are bad?!

What do I have to think of? Which way should I go?
What's the best solution for that situation?

Please help me...

Thanks a lot!!
