In the bottom part of the Search screen, you can choose "Relevance" as the Collation selection
(viz., "Sort results by ...").
This will display the result set sorted by relevance score. You can control the relevance-scoring to some
degree by "boosting" particular term(s) in your query.
You can specify the level of importance given to particular terms of your query by "term boosting".
To boost the relevance of a term, use the caret character ('^') with an optional boost-factor
(which must be an integer number)
at the end of the term. The higher the boost-factor, the more relevant the term will be.
For example, if you are searching for
and you want the term "gradual" to be more relevant, you can boost it using the '^' character
along with the boost-factor right after the term. Thus, you would type:
This will make results with the term "gradual" be ranked higher in their relevance scores;
in other words, they will appear closer to the top of the result set.
You can also boost whole phrases, for example:
The default boost-factor is 1. Although the boost-factor must be positive, it can be less than 1
