CirrusSearch: In prefix search redirects shouldn't be ranked as highly as titles
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In prefix search redirects shouldn't be ranked as highly as titles. Right now they are and you get weird results like a search for "fish" getting "Fishspinner" as the second result. As cool as that word is, its actually a redirect to tropical cyclone.

Bug 63627 strikes again? Not to be confused with bug 65232.

Bug 63627 strikes again? Not to be confused with bug 65232.

Its its own thing I think. It is a side effect of my (unilateral?) decision to add redirects to prefix search. I chose that to keep prefix search in line with the near match search behavior which redirects. But yeah, its caused a few bugs. I've played a little with these settings locally and I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I'm also surprised this didn't come up before enwiki.

Whatever, this is going to prod today.
