Subject Re: solr search relevancy
Date Mon, 09 Nov 2015 11:11:04 GMT
Hi Dhanesh,
Several things you could try:
* when you are searching for "bank" you are actually searching for 
tag/category and in your query you are boosting name 300 while tag is 3.
* you must not sort on premium content weight - you can either use boost 
query clauses to prefer premium content
* use elevator component in case you want to explicitly list some 
results for some queries
* take a look at edismax query parser instead of building your own query 
- it gives you nice features you could use here: boost fields, minimum 
terms match, boost queries...


Monitoring * Alerting * Anomaly Detection * Centralized Log Management
Solr & Elasticsearch Support *
