yacysearch.json drops well-ranked results

Beitragvon davide » Do Okt 22, 2015 6:45 pm

The following query

Code: Alles auswählen
query #1
/yacysearch.json?query=logitech+mx+revolution&resource=local&maximumRecords=100

returns relevant results, which I assume are those results with a low "ranking" numeric property. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Code: Alles auswählen
query #2
/yacysearch.json?query=logitech+mx+revolution&resource=local&maximumRecords=10

Running the same query with a reduced maximumRecords parameter (query #2) doesn't return the top 10 results with lowest ranking, as I would expect, instead it apparently returns a random subset of 10 unsorted results with casual ranking values, and does not include the most relevant (lowest ranking) results returned by query #1. All the results with low ranking which are returned by #1 are in my local index, and thus can be retrieved repeatedly and are always accessible to my queries.

Thus, I believe that to get relevant results (low ranking value) I need to specify a high maximumRecords parameter, independently from how many results I actually need.

Correct?
