Database Frequency

 

Syntax: choose from drop down list

Controls how important frequency in the table is for results ranking. The more a term occurs in the table being searched, the worse its rank. Terms that occur in many documents are usually less relevant than rare terms. For example, in a web-walk database the word "HTML" is likely to occur in most documents: it thus has little use in finding a specific document. The default weight is medium (500). Note that search users can override this setting on the Advanced search form.
