Search Results, not what you're expecting - Update 6/19
Update 6/19: We've recently pushed an update to the search configuration in the platform. This change reduces the ranking weight of the product documentation. This appears to help improve the results overall. Let us know if you see an improvement.
You may have noticed that the search results are not optimum. We've seen in too and we're working on addressing the search issue. The issue is the product documentation is included in the search index and is getting priority over other content.
The search index is including the product documentation, and at the moment these posts are given a higher weight in the search results. We’re investigating with Lithium how to change search results to make the results more relevant.
There is a workaround:
- Ignore the suggested results and hit enter… taking you to the Search Page.
- Change the “SortBy” from Best Match to Kudos, or Replies….
Any workaround isn’t ideal. But this will get you better results while we work on fixing the suggested/default results.
