You can use QMS to ensure that a query or parametric query result appears at a specific position in the results list. This process is known as cardinal placement.
There are two different types of cardinal placement that you can use in QMS:
- Cardinal placement for documents. QMS places a document at a specific location in a results list. For example, if a user queries for phone, you can display a result for a specific phone model at the top of the results list.
- Parametric cardinal placement. QMS orders a parametric list with an item at a specific position in the list. For example, if a user queries for phone and you provide a list of phone models to narrow the search, you can display a specific model at the top of the list.
QMS automatically queries for cardinal placement and parametric cardinal placement rules. If these rules exist, cardinal placements return by default.
