FAQ
Hi!

I would like to announce RankingAlgorithm. RankingAlgorithm is a new search
algorithm that seems to enable Solr to returns results comparable to
Google site
search results, and much better than Lucene
<http://tgels.com/wiki/en/ComparisonWithGoogleSiteSearchAndLucene>.
RankingAlgorithm uses
Lucene for Indexing but searches, scores and ranks on its own. It is very
easy to use as there is no change to the existing indexes, except that
the results
and the score, which is again very easy to read and shows the relevancy
of the match.

You can get more information about RankingAlgorithm from here:
http://rankingalgorithm.tgels.com

You can try out a demo with Solr here:
http://solr-ra.tgels.com/rankingsearch.jsp

A case study "Integrating RankingAlgorithm with JAMWiki" is available
here: http://solr-ra.tgels.com/wiki/en/Case_Study


You can download RankingAlgorithm from here (it is free):
http://rankingalgorithm.tgels.com

Please give it a try and send your feedback to rankingalgorithm@tgels.com.


Sincerely,

    To be clear, the software may be free (as in beer), but it is not open (as
    in open source). It doesn't appear that there is source available, there is
    a mention of a patent and there is a license that precludes redistribution.

    It also isn't clear that lucene/solr wouldn't perform just as well with a
    slight bit of tuning.

    Hi Ted:

    It is free for open source projects and non-profits. I looked at the
    license agreement and
    am not sure which parts limit re-distribution but if you can point it
    out, sure
    can take a look to make the needed changes. It is not open source though.

    Regarding Lucene/Solr, the wiki has the schema and solrconfig used for
    the tests,
    see here: http://solr-ra.tgels.com/wiki/en/Demo

    Lucene is very good and RankingAlgorithm builds on to this by making it
    very easy
    to get relevant and accurate results without much tuning, etc.

    Regards,
    - NN
