Subject Is it possible to apply index-time synonyms just for a section of the index
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2009 19:20:17 GMT

I've posted a few questions on synonyms before and finally understood how it
worked and settled with index-time synonyms. Seems to work much better than
query time synonyms. But now @ my work, they have a special request. They
want certain synonyms to be applied only to certain sections of the index.
For example, we have legal faqs, forms etc and we have attorneys in our
The following synonyms for example,
california,san diego
So for a search 'real estate san diego', it makes sense to return all faqs,
forms for 'california' in the index but doesn't make sense to return a real
estate attorney elsewhere in california (like burbank) besides just
restricting to san diego attorneys.
To be more clear I want to be able to return all california faqs & forms for
'real estate san diego' but not all california attorneys for the same. That
means, i should index the faqs, forms with the state => city mappings as
above but not for attorneys.
Well I could index all other resources like faqs, forms first with these
synonyms, then remove them and index attorneys. But that wouldn't work well
in my case because we have a scheduler set up that runs every night to index
any new resources from our database.
Can someone suggest a good solution for this?
