I'm a new SWISH user, and I like what I see (mostly ;-) I have been setting
it up to catalog my 1500+ page site. But, I have been trying some searches,
and some of them yield the most unexpected results...
or go to http://www.insulators.com/general/swish.htm and type in Magazines
yields very strange results...
The page listed #1 has the word "magazine" twice (but they are bolded)
The page listed #2 have "magazine" in the body once (not bold)
The pages that list #3, 4, 5 only have the word "magazines" ONCE down in
the body of the text.
BUT, page listed #6 has the title "Magazines", has a H1 Magazines, and also
has "magazines" appearing at least three other times on the page! Why is
THIS page ranked so low???
Yes, I have stem searching configured. And the index is merged from several
smaller ones that I have built because on my (virtual) server I don't have
enough memory to build the whole index at once. I have my own list of
stopwords, and of course magazine is not one of them!
I don't need a full explanation of the ranking algorithm, but the "obvious"
match seems quite far down (and also only yields a swish rank of 217,
compared to 1&2 at 1000, and 3,4,5 at 665).
Thanks in advance...
