# Cfsearch relevancy score

Hi,

can I know how can I convert cfsearch score from .34525154 to something
like 89% ?

I know I can multiple it by 100 BUT still it will be 34.52 or something I
could not get values like .851545, .7578112 etc which then can be converted
to 85.15, 75.78 etc.

Thanks

You’re getting .34525154 because the relevance score is only 34% based on
your search terms and the number of documents being searched. Better search
terms (with fewer matches) or less documents would produce better
relevance. In short, there’s no fuzzy math here… what the relevance
returns is multiplied by 100 and that’s you’re percentage.

Thanks, does it means that it’s not just per keyword?

eg. if you search ‘coffee’

Rank 1: contains 7 coffee keyword
Rank 2: contains 5 coffee keyword
Rank 3: contains 18 coffee keywordOn Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 10:10:59 PM UTC+8, Denard Springle wrote:
