Ranked Title Index
Search results from a Ranked Keyword search are displayed in the
Ranked Keyword Titles Index. The Ranked Keyword Titles Index displays
the type of search, the title(s), and other information.
The Ranked Titles Index for a Ranked Keyword Search contains a Relevance
column. This column indicates how much relevance (weight) each title has
based on the search criteria you entered. The most relevant titles display
at the top of the list. In addition, the Relevance column displays colored bullets.
As the titles become less and less relevant to the search criteria you
entered, the number of bullets in the Relevance column will decrease.
