I'm looking for information on how swish-e 1.3.x computes the relevance
>From the docs:
"The relevance rank.
... depends on a number of factors, such as how many times your search word
appears in the file, how many words are in the file, and if the word
appears in a title or header tag (if it's an HTML file), among other factors."
- what is exactly meant by "header tag" above? Anything within the
<HEAD></HEAD> block? Does this mean a <TITLE> placed in a <HEAD> block
will ranked higher than a <TITLE> outside a <HEAD> block?
- are keywords found in <META> tags used in computing the score? And does
it matter where the <META> tags are located (in <HEAD>, <BODY>, or
- does other HTML formatting effect the scoring?
- what are those "other factors" mentioned above?
BTW -- the indexed documents are not HTML files read by a browser, which is
why I'm describing invalid HTML.
