Example searches


Search Relevancy (public) works by:
If document has the whole word in it, its ranked before a documentwith only partial word, eg searching for 'and' will return 'this andthat' before 'sand in my shoes'.

Points are added to relevancy based on its size of data, theincrements are 2kb, 4kb, 6kb, 8kb since the larger the document the moreworth while information it has.
We then search for how many times the word appears in the datadivided by the number of words in the data, more points for a whole wordmatch to a partial word match. Points are higher for a word in theTitle, then Description, then Keywords then Text.
