Optimize seaches; business is progressing with my Solr site

gearond
Thanks to LOTS of information from you guys, my site is up and working. It's
only an API now, I need to work on my OWN front end, LOL!

I have my second customer. My general purpose repository API is very useful I'm
finding. I will soon be in the business of optimizing the search engine part.


For example. I have a copy field that has the words, 'boogie woogie ballroom' on
lots of records in the copy field. I cannot find those records using
'boogie/boogi/boog', or the woogie versions of those, but I can with ballroom.
For my VERY first lesson in optimization of search, what might be causing that,
and where are the places to read on the Solr site on this?

All the best on a Sunday, guys and gals.

What does &debugQuery=on give you? Second, what optimizatons are you doing?
What shows up in they analysis page? does your admin page show the terms in
your copyfield you expect?

Best

Hmmm, my default distance for geospatial was excluding the results, I  believe.
I have to check to see if I was actually looking at the desired  return result
for 'ballroom' alone. Mabye I wasn't.

But I saw a lot to learn when I applied the techniques you gave me. Thank you
:-)
