Result Order

 

Syntax: select Relevance, Date, or URL button

This determines the default ordering of search results.

  • Rank - search results are ordered by rank (or relevance) by default.

  • Date - search results are ordered by date descending (newest first) by default.

  • URL - search results ordered by their URLs alphabetically by default.

Search users may select the alternate ordering from this default in the Advanced search form. Note that more ordering options are possible by setting the order query variable directly; see discussion under Search Parameters - Search control (here). Note also that the factors that influence a document's rank for Rank ordering - including date - can be controlled; see Word Ordering and other rank "knobs", here.
