Search Result Modification

Friday, October 16th, 2009

A very minor change, but some of you may notice it and be curious, clicking search results now no longer opens the result in a new window.

Search result relevancy improved!

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

We just deployed a major enhancement of the driver search indexing! We’re now weighting drivers differently based on meta-information about them which is independent of the search terms used. Previously, the relevance ranking of the search results was based solely on our matching the search terms against the text describing the driver. The newly deployed enhancement causes the relevance ranking to now also factor in broader meta-information about the drivers, such as user ratings and number of downloads.
