Zing can expand search results with synonyms

Expand search results to include additional search terms.

By default, Zing includes a sample synonym dictionary consisting of a list of synonym sets (synsets). Zing supports two types of synonym sets.
Table 1. Synonym set types
Synonym set type Description Example
Synonym list A synonym list is a list of words separated by commas. When a search uses any word from the list, Zing expands the search to include all words in the list. Cyber,Internet,Cybercafe
Synonym map A synonym map is two word lists separated by the equal and greater than characters => . When a search uses any word from the list on the left, Zing expands the search to include all words from the list on the right. When a search uses a word from the list on the right, Zing does not expand the search to include terms from the list on the left. IOT,Internet of Things=>Chip,Nest thermostat,RFID,IOT

In search results, documents containing the original search keywords having a higher score than documents containing the search synonyms. For example, documents with the keyword IOT have a higher score than documents with the synonym Internet of Things.

Search administrators can create synonym set for search terms that produce no or low-scoring search results. See the Top Searches homepage for information about your user's search behavior.
