Subject Re: Different Sorts based on Different Groups

Hi Gustatec,


Relevancy tuning is really *huge* area, check this book when you have a
chance: https://www.manning.com/books/relevant-search

Default Solr sorting is based on TF/IDF algorithm; and sorting is not
necessarily ‘relevancy’

Trivial solution for clothes store domain would be this one, better to
explain using examples:

Product 1
========
Name: "Russell Athletic Men's Basic Tank Top"
Categories: “Shirt”, “Sleeveless Shirt”, “Tank Top”

Product 2
========
Name: "Russell Athletic Men's Cotton Muscle Shirt"
Categories: “Shirt”, “Sleeveless Shirt”, “Tank Top”


You may notice that first product has “Top” repeated twice in product name
and category; and second one has “Short” repeated twice.

Now having this real-life example you can play with boost query, boosting
results containing words from category name in their product name.

category:”Tank Top” & bq:”name:tank^10 OR name:top^5"


Solr provides “boost query” to tune sorting of output results, check “bq”
parameter in the docs at
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/solr/The+DisMax+Query+Parser


I went from real-life scenario; your scenario and possible solutions could
be very different.

I had recently assignment at well-known retail shop where we even designed
pre-query custom boosts so that we can customize typical (most important
for the business) queries as per business needs



Thanks,

Hello everyone!

I'm currently using Solr in a project (pretty much an e-commerce POC) and
came across with the following sort situation:

I have two products one called Product1 and other one called Product2, both
of them belongs to the same categories, Shirt(ID 1) and Tank-Top(ID 2)

When i query for any of these categories, it returns both of the products,
in the same order.

Is it possible to do some kind of grouping sort in query? So when i query
for category Shirt, it returns first Product1 then Product2 and when i do
the same query for category Tank-Top it would return first Product2 then
Product1?

By asking that i wonder if its possible to make a product more relevant,
based on the query.

So product1 relevancy would be
Category ID | Priority
1 | 1
2 | 2

And product2 would be
Category ID | Priority
1 | 2
2 | 1


Is it possible to achieve this "elevate" funcionality in query?

i thought in doing a <category_name>_sort field for all categories, but we
are actually talking about a few hundred categories, so i dont know if
would
be viable to create one sort field for each one of them in every single
doc...

Ps: I asks if its achievable that in query because i dont know if there is
any other way of changing the elevate.xml file without having to restart my
solr instance

Sorry for my bad english, and thanks in advance!
