Using Microsoft Index Server index server chrisforeman2 msg:946223 11:05 am on Oct 21, 2003 (gmt 0) HI,
Here at the office we use index server for our searching (as you do).
A department has asked if their page can be ranked more highly if users search with some specific keywords/phrases.
Is it just a matter of adding more keywords into the page or is there another way of "tweaking" a page to perform better in search results using index server.

you might want to check the search engine promotion forum, or any of the specific SE forums. you might find some better answers there.

It was moved into this section as its a Microsoft product that is shipped with IIS. its often used by thise who host there own sitesand want an inhouse search function. mattglet msg:946226 10:45 pm on Oct 21, 2003 (gmt 0)

Hello chrisforeman2. You may find this information from Microsoft's website to be of assistance in your information search... Index Server: A Technical Overview [ microsoft.com]
P.S. Those users who want more visiblity in the search results will have to do some SEO/SEM work to get there! ;)

We run IIS and use it as the backend to our websites searching. To extend the ISS capability we developed a series of asps which filter and arrange the pages. Added to this we generated an extra filter which reads the TITLE and SUBJECT headings in the metadata so the primary pages are always top-most in the result set. The finally filter doesn't require a re-indexing if a new primary page is loaded - it just comes up as part of the search.
