Ranking Factors

Ranking Factors allow users to re-rank the search based upon a variety of parameters. These parameters are called Ranking Factors. Depending on these settings, certain search results will be given higher priority than others based upon the parameters selected.

Each ranking factor can be given a certain amount of Importance, which is selected from the drop-down menu next to each factor, ranging from "off" to "max." The higher the importance, the higher rank in the results OU Search will give to pages that have "high scores" in that parameter.

The Rank Factors available are as follows:
