Search and Ye Shall Find

question mark
  • Magic Box
  • Recall
  • Precision


You’ve all used search.
You’ve put in a word in the search box and out pops a million things related to that word
– it’s magic.
But how good is search?
Well it’s judged on 2 things;–
Recall and Precision
Recall is how good it is finding absolutely everything you were searching for.
Precision is how good it is at organising those results by how relevant they are to your query. (Wodtke)
