Relevance of results


I've installed and used BOSS for the first time after owning it for a while.

It was really easy to implement and worked first time.

What I would like to know is how can I weight the relevance of the results? For example, how could I make sure it would pull back a page with a URL relative to the search string giving it a higher weighting than a page with the search term perhaps mentioned only once on the page?

The results that are returned with the Yahoo Search for BOSS are controlled by the Yahoo search engine. It is a basic call to the API that is sent with the parameters for the site you are searching (sites=) and the term searched for. Manipulating the weight of the results returned is not an option with this tool, I'm not sure if this is something you would be able to do with any implementation of a Yahoo search.
