OK It must be because I am on Phoenix, the traffic number are certainly being used on my viewer.

Go to Search, click the Places tab, type vehicles in the "Find" and click Search.

Locations with the highest numbers are listed at the top.

Location with zero traffic are 4 pages deep.

Phoenix is 1.x and that search is supposedly going to be disabled by LL as per their communications not long ago. The conspiracy theorists claim it is an attempt to force people to SLv2. However if the TPV teams want to back port the new search they can. If they don't then 1.x TPVs will simply not have search when LL deletes it.

Places search in the new search allows sorting by relevance, name ascending, name descending.

What determines relevance exactly? What if two places offer the same thing?

I thought relevance was similar to google relevance, increases with number of people who clicked on the entry and spent time looking at content. Surely that would be more suseptible to abuse than having to park avatars on site?

Depends on the search engine and how LL configures it. LL is not going to tell anyone either of those things. LL does, however, tell you what to do in the wiki.

BTW no. Parcel size is not a deciding rank factor despite what the tin foilers say.

Except that our "webpages" have no content to look at. You have to go to the inworld site to look at the content.

The old search.secondlife.com that powered the web based "All" search in 1.x, and the 2.0-2.6 search, actually used Google software, so yes it worked exactly on Google's notion of relevance, and LL had to web-ify a lot of information just so the search engine could consume it. This is why the world.secondlife.com had object lists etc., so that the Google software could use them in the index.

They have not really disclosed what powers the new search beta, but the results "feel like" Lucene/Solr, the same platform they chose for the marketplace. This platform is much more flexible than Google, Lindens are now free to define relevance with anything they can count, using any formula that makes sense to them.

He probably doesn't know the Google Search Appliance crap that nearly destroyed SL is over and no more.
