Scoring Elasticsearch by postion of query term in the indexed document

(Tahir Ahmad) #1

I mean if I have When I index say following documents :

doc 1: coconut red orange
doc 2: orange coconut apple
doc 3: coconut orange apple

I search for a term "coconut" and get I following result:

rank 1: coconut red orange
rank 2: orange coconut apple
rank 3: coconut orange apple

All the docs have same score.

My disered output would have been :

coconut red orange
coconut orange apple
orange coconut apple

The term which I am searching for is at the start of the document needs to be ranked better than where it appears later.

I can't figure out how to make that happen. Term position isn't factored into the default scoring logic, and I can't find a way to get it in there. Seems like a simple enough issue though that others must have run into this before. Has anyone figured it out yet?
