Subject Custom Similarity
Date Sat, 08 Oct 2011 07:37:01 GMT

Does anyone have a modified scoring (Similarity) function they would
care to share?

I'm searching web page documents and find the default Similarity seems
to assign too much weight to documents with frequent occurrence of a
single term from the query and not enough weight to documents that
contain a greater overlap of the search query terms.

I've been playing around with overriding the default but wondering if
anyone has an implementation they have found to work well that they
would care to share.

Thanks in advance,
