If we submit a search query for "cottage hot tub" on our site, the Custom Search returns 478 matches.
However, if we submit a more specific query "cottage with hot tub" we get 1630 matches.
Why would adding the word "with" to the query result in more matches, rather than less?
Also, these similar queries "log cabin st austell" and "log cabin austell" return the same number of matches as expected, but they are presented in a different order. Why?2 votes
When using the 'count' and 'offset' options to paginate results, the 'totalEstimatedMatches' value changes after a certain number of pages.
For example, a search for "cottage with hot tub" on our site initially shows 1630 matches. But after paging through the first 21 pages of results (offset 440), the number of matches drops to 499 for no apparent reason.
Surely the number of matches should stay the same regardless of where within the results you are viewing them?8 votes
Our FAQs use html bookarks (#) to take to particular sections. We would like to pin some searches to these sections. However, if you try to add URL with # in it...it will delete from the # forward.
If there is not a security reason to do this then it would be useful to allow us to do this.1 vote
Is there any way, we implement filters or categories with which we can Filter Search Results as shown in attachment2 votes
You can use the pinned feature to filter search results for a specific query for a specific URL in the site.
You can also check different parameters here: https://dev.cognitive.microsoft.com/docs/services/56b43eeccf5ff8098cef3807/operations/56b4447dcf5ff8098cef380d/console
Please let me know if you have further questions about this.
Great and useful tool for domain specific subjects. Please allow us to access the custom search instance via a dedicated URL (not just API endpoint). We want to do a DNS CNAME-record like search.company.com that points to this resource. Many thanks!1 vote
Hello- This is available through the Hosted UI.
Please allow users to sort (not filter) results by date, i.e., newest pages listed first.9 votes
