[MedHunt HELP] [Query] [Results] [MUST of MedHunt] [Logos]

Explanation concerning the score in MedHunt:

Score calculation:

MedHunt seeks in its database the pages which correspond to your request.
For each pages, a score is calculated taking account of the place of your query found in the page (Title, Url, Text, Meta description, ...)
For example, a term of your request present in the title of the page will have more influence on the score than if this term were present in the body of the page.

Score indication:

The calculated score depends on the request carried out.
A score > 15 indicates that the page corresponds to your query.
A score > 5 and < 15 indicates that the page contains a paragraph corresponding to your query.
A score < 5 indicates that your query is listed within the document.

To make the reading of the results easier, MedHunt associates an image with the score of the page.
Graphical appearance for the score of the page:

The page corresponds to your query.

The page contains a paragraph corresponding to your query.

Your query is listed within the document.

Warning:

The score does not indicate the value (in a medical view) of a page, but only the relation between your query and the page. So, for a same page, two different requests will give two different scores.
However, other indications given in the display of MedHunt's results can enable you to evaluate a page (description, keywords, links, ...).
