Using bias to tune search results

The Apache Solr Search module's bias settings enable you to assign search bias to certain aspects of indexed items. Search bias influences the importance of those aspects in search results. Any value except "Omit" or "Ignore" increases that aspect's score in the results. The higher the score, the more those aspects will influence the search results. You can assign values from 0.1 to 21.0 when you set a bias. You can assign bias by:

  • node attributes
