Serving > Result Biasing
Use the Serving > Result Biasing page to perform the following tasks:
The search appliance ranks the documents that it finds in response to a user search query by calculating a score for each document. The score reflects the probable relevance of the document content and determines the order in which results appear on the search results page. To influence search appliance rankings, use a result biasing policy. A default result biasing policy (default_policy) is built into the search appliance. You can use default_policy, or create one or more custom result biasing policies.
