For example, you might want to boost PDFs across search results
To do this-
- Go to https://cse.expertrec.com/csedashboard/search/boostFields
- Click on the + icon
- Choose type
- Click on Add – under the list of fields – choose PDF
- You can choose more fields if you want to and give relative boost value.
- Choose a boost value- I the below image, PDFs have more priority than HTML which has more priority than general results while XML files have lower ranking compared to general search results
- Value greater than 0- Positive boost
- Value=0- No boost
