Subject Relevancy Score and Proximity Search
Date Thu, 28 May 2015 14:06:08 GMT

Does anyone knows how Solr does its scoring with a query that has proximity
search enabled.

For example, when I issue a query q=Matex~1, the result with the top score
that came back was actually 'Latex', and with a score of 2.27. This is with
the fact that there are several documents in my index which contain the
exact word 'Matex'. All these results came back below, and only with a
score of 0.19.

Shouldn't documents with the exact match supposed to have a higher score
then those which are found by proximity search?

I'm using Solr 5.1 and have not change any settings. All my settings are
the default settings.
