Relevant Search¬†demystifies the subject and shows you that a search engine is a programmable relevance framework. You’ll learn how to apply Elasticsearch or Solr to your business’s unique ranking problems. The book demonstrates how to program relevance and how to incorporate secondary data sources, taxonomies, text analytics, and personalization. In practice, a relevance framework requires softer skills as well, such as collaborating with stakeholders to discover the right relevance requirements for your business. By the end, you’ll be able to achieve a virtuous cycle of provable, measurable relevance improvements over a search product’s lifetime.
