Custom Search Engine gets improved “quality results” features

The Google CSE Blog has announced the implementation of two frequently-requested features that will improve the quality of results in Custom Search Engine.

  1. Keywords now have a much stronger effect on Custom Search results. This helps give better targeted results and more flexibility than before. You can change your search engine’s keywords in the “Basics” tab of your search engine’s control panel. If you don’t like the effect that keywords have your search results, you can also remove them.

    Compare the results on this yoga search engine when looking for a “mat” with and without the keyword “yoga”:

    without keywords:

  2. For the XML hackers, FILTER labels now are effected by scores and weights just like BOOST labels. This simplifies rearranging your search results so that the content you care about comes up first. In order to prioritize a set of pages, give annotations for those pages’ higher scores.

    Compare the results of using scores in this vision search engine to prioritize *.ucsd.edu/* over other schools.
