Although the ranks coming from different indexes may not be related,
right? The displayed rank is scaled based on the result set for a
given index. You may have a result from one index with a rank of 900 that
seems less related than a result from another index that ranks 800.
Still, probably works fine in most cases. I wonder if swish could give
you more of a raw ranking score and then have your manager scale the
ranks all at once.
Very cool. Now you have fodder for a publication!
