    What are the default field weights for Voyager search indexes? Are there recommended defaults?


    Fields can be weighted any value from 20 to 500. By default, all fields are weighted at 100. You can set desired field weights higher or lower than this threshold to increase or decrease the importance of the field when relevance ranking search results.

    Additional Information

    See the System Administration User's Guide for more information on field weights (Search > Indexes - Field Weighting)
