Subject What do I need to research to solve the problem of returning good results for a generic term?
Date Fri, 28 Dec 2012 09:40:43 GMT
I'm sure this is a complex problem requiring many iterations of work, so I'm
just looking for pointers in the right direction of research here.


I have a base term, such as let's say "black dress" that I might search for.
Someone searching on this term is most logically looking for black dresses.
In my dataset I have black dresses, but I also have many CDs with the term
"black dress" in them (it's not so uncommon of a song title). 


I would want the CDs to show up if I search for a more specific term like
"black dress CD", but I would want the black dresses to show up for the less
specific term "black dress".


Google image search is excellent at handling this example. A pretty vanilla
installation of Solr isn't yet great at it.


So. just looking for a nudge in the right direction here. What should I go
read up on first to start learning how to improve on these results?
