Hi Michael,

Dan Scott wrote an excellent post about this years ago for 1.6 that is 
still applicable to current releases of Evergreen - 

Just a note that the search.relevance_ranking table he mentions early in 
the post is something our consortia do not turn on due to performance 
issues that arose in 2.0. However, the rest of the blog post on how to 
weight indexes is something we've done in two of our consortia.
