clickworker search relevance service: top performance to push your e-business forward
You need intelligent search functions that work for your e-business. If your business showcases a high quantity of products, services, and/or other meaningful information, it is important to create the best search experience for users to ensure that they will find what is relevant to them. If your visitors struggle to find what they need, they will leave your website and do business elsewhere, increasing your bounce rate and reducing customer satisfaction in the process.
In order to provide your visitors with an ideal user experience and help them find what they are looking for, your search function has to be more than just that – it needs to be an organized database of everything that makes your website what it is. This means that your search results have to pair with specific search inquiries, as well as cater to customer and user expectations. The easiest way to accomplish this is through our search relevance service.
Our large network of Clickworkers examines the results of search inquiries made through your website’s search function and evaluate them according to their relevance regarding the given search term. When you use our search relevance service, you gain access to a dedicated team of thousands of Clickworkers located all throughout the world. We offer multi-language support and evaluate the results according to their local reference as well as their actual or subjective relevance.
The data and insights you gain with our service greatly improve your search results when paired with the algorithms that power your search function. We provide valuable insights using our large team of Clickworkers to identify and create a more fluid intelligent search experience that corresponds to the expectations of your users.
“The “human factor” was missing in our programming. The search results were logical, but often did not meet the expectations of our users. They lacked local references and other human characteristics. The Clickworker team not only replaced the missing factor, but they immensely improved our search algorithm. Using their common sense, they evaluated nearly 4,000 search results daily, and provided me with valuable specifications for the optimization of our search engine algorithm.”Marc B., managing director of an international trade and information directory.

Search relevance measures how true the results of a search are in comparison to the search query. Search results can be “tuned” by considering business priorities, spelling, user location, language, and through the use of specific keywords. Relevance requires an understanding of the customer, as eCommerce consumers are different from researchers and academics. Optimizing search relevance can help improve the conversion rate for businesses as well as the overall customer experience.
How do you measure search relevance?
With a web search engine, relevance is measured in two ways. Precision measures the portion of the results returned that are relevant to the query, while Recall counts the number of relevant results returned. To calculate “the whole truth” requires a Precision of 1. Similarly, to make sure that you’re only counting “nothing but the truth” would mean that Recall also measures a 1.
How can search relevance be improved?
Improving search relevance requires the use of massive datasets. These datasets need to be correctly labelled and tagged when input and recategorized at output if necessary. Using human annotators that are skilled in the unique requirements of the project and have fluency in the native language is essential. By running the data through the algorithm multiple times, the search engine can be taught to provide better and more relevant results.
Why is search relevance so important?
The internet today hosts hundreds of millions of web pages and websites. Finding exactly what you are looking for in this massive (and growing) pile of information would be next to impossible without search engines. Search engines help to categorize websites based on their content helping individuals find the information they need based on the relevance of the site. Different search engines use different weighting strategies in their algorithms, but they all consider keywords and the number and quality of links from other sites.
