In MS SQL Full-text search, I'm using ISABOUT in my queries.
For example, this should return the top 10
(PK) with a
Field in the
FROM CONTAINSTABLE( ProductDetails, *, ISABOUT("Nikon" WEIGHT (1.0), "Cameras" Weight(0.9)), 10 )
However, according to the SQL Documentation
So, I have two questions:
- What is
being replaced with?
- DO I even NEED any extra
there? ( IOW, would just putting the search phrase 'Nikon Cameras' be better? )
What I was originally trying to accomplish here was to weight the first word the highest, then the second word lower, and keep descending to 0.5 where I would just rank the remaining words at 0.5.
My logic ( and perhaps it's flawed ) was that people's most relevant search words usually happen near the beginning of a phrase ( in English ).
- Am I going about this the wrong way?
- Is there a better way?
- Am I asking too many questions? (^_^)
Thanks all for your time...
