Lesson 4: Query Rules

Query Rules

Query Rules : This lesson describes query rules and how they are used to promote content.

Lesson Objectives

The objectives are:

  • Describe how queryrules works.
  • Apply queryrules in an e-commerce scenario.

Query Rule Conditions and Correlated Actions

In a queryrule, you specify conditions and correlated actions. When a query meets the conditions in a queryrule, the search system performs the actions specified in the rule to improve the relevance of the search results.

Examples of this might be to narrow the results or change the order in which results appear.

For example, a queryrule condition can be based on “Query Matches Keyword Exactly.” In other words, if someone types a keyword such as “camera,” you might want to show the camera that you have in stock on top (so you would define a rules that says, ”if someone types ‘camera,’ show camera x on top”). Another example might be that you have a number of instruction manuals on your site for which you have defined a specific content source. You can then easily use “Query More Common in Source,“ and define a rule that says, “if someone types in manual, instruction manual, or instruction manual x, promote results from the Source manuals” (in other words, show them on top).
