Tags not being excluded from search

Recommended Posts

I am having an issue with tagging. When I tag items as irrelevant, some of them are not being excluded from the search results when I have specifically excluded them i.e. total results are 1500, I tag 100 has irrelevant but when the search results are refreshed it still shows the number as 1420 rather than 1400. Its not a big difference, but compounded over a large case this ends up duplicating a lot of work.

Anyone have any insights as to why this would be happening.

Thanks

Hi QasimProtiviti,

In general this shouldn't be the case. What I can suggest to you is do the following:

  1. Clear searches
  2. Add a regular search query that will produce 1500 items (like before)
  3. Add a regular search query for 100 items tagged as "Irrelevant"

Now look at the clustermap - if it contains only two clusters, then that is fine. If it contains three, then it means some of items which you tagged as "Irrelevant" are not in the scope of your initial search for 1500 items.

Example: I searched for term "look" and marked 10 of those items as "Irrelevant". When I do those three steps listed above I see:

Now, I marked 2 more items as Irrelevant, but I made sure that they don't contain term "look". This is what I see after I repeat my exercise:

This pictures clearly says that I have 12 irrelevant items, but only 10 of them are also responsive to "look". So if I now search for "look" and exclude items tagged as "Irrelevant", I see:

This might look misleading at first, because for an untrained eye "260 - 12" should equal 248, but it's should now be clear that those two extra items were never a part of the "look" cluster, therefore they shouldn't be accounted for.

 

Hope that I was on the right track here and it helps you down the road.
