When entering a search term and getting back the results sorted by score, is there a way to get it to return slightly randomized results?
I don't mean totally random. I mean maybe a small random multiplier could be added to all the scores on the server side so that it still displays more relevant results first, but in a slightly different order.
I'd like to do this randomization on the server side, so that it's randomized before sending to the client. Otherwise if do it on the client side, if I request the first 20 hits it'll always be the same 20 just in a different order.
I'm not sure if I've explained it clearly, please let me know.
