Subject RE: [Lucene.Net] Google Ranking with Lucene
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2011 02:35:21 GMT

Hello Björn.
In short, no.
What google does to their algorithmic search is extremely secretive. It is also a very limited
subset of the type of data Lucene.Net might store. It uses lots of signals from around the
web, such as how many people link to a particular page, to guage the important of a particular
search result. This becomes irrelveant if you are indexing something such as research documents.
People don't link to other documents in the traditional sense.
Further, the recent changes they made really focused on downranking "content farms" where
data is cheaply put together and lots of advertising is added to generate advertising revenues.
Their changes don't really apply to Lucene. That would more apply to how you decide to index
your content, how deal with strengtheners, etc.
Hope that helps,
~Prescott Nasser
