How we can affect the Confluence search results

Alex Kiselev _Itransition_ September 3, 2019

Is there any way to lift up some articles in Confluence search by keywords?

As I see - there are 4 factors (

  • Age
  • Title
  • Content
  • Popularity

It would be useful to add some additional factor, that can be used by space admin.

For example - we have some space as Knowledge Database.

Scenario is following:

Space Admin knows that standard confluence search by keyword 'a' returns ranged list of articles a1, a2, a3, a4.

Space Admin's goal is - pop up article a4 on first position in confluence search by keyword 'a'.

Thanks in advance,

Hello, @Alex Kiselev _Itransition_!
Currently, we can not alter the ranking of search results within Confluence.
We can, however, use labels to better organize your content. We have a thread about this. Here you check it:

Further down our reports, I have found an old request about this here:

For short, we can use labels to improve "searcheability" of our content. As a third-party solution, there is a possibility that a plugin might help your case. Take a look here:

Looking forward to your reply, Alex!

Alex Kiselev says that "popularity" is a factor in ranking.  
I'm not sure what "popularity" means.  As of today Popularity is not mentioned on the documentation page
