I am trying to boost product search results based on the score of frequently used hits (hit boosting), and tracking is enabled. I have played around with different values for hitBoostScale and decayScale, but I seem to get the same result no mather how I change the values.

Could someone indicate what would be the correct values for hitBoostScale if I want to boost the results based on frequently used hits?

It may be because I am blond, but the documentation:

To control the rapidity of the decay, set the hitBoostScale parameter, which sets the half-life, where the boost is at 50%. By default, hitBoostScale is set to 0.1 (10%). Lowering the scale makes the inverted decay more rapid. If you set a value higher than 0.1, it leads to cut-off where the hit boost cannot reach the upper range limit.

do not make me more wise. ;)

What type of search are you using. I think off the top of my head it only works with Unified search?

Yes, I am using Unified search.

Hmmn stange, then again we're not using any of the parameters just the default boosting.

Update: It turned out to be 2 separate bugs in Find that caused this not to work.
