The search program essentially counts the number of times the keyword(s) or phrase(s) you submitted are found in each page on the website and where on each page the word is located. The program then ranks each page on a scale of 0 to 1.00 with 1.00 being the highest ranking possible. The pages are then sorted so that the page with highest ranking appears first and so forth. It also displays the size of the file and a brief clip from that file.

A search on medicaid will locate many links, including the following two:

1 1.00 /web/testwww/legislative/ic/98/title12/ar15/ch1.html 13.39
8 0.98 /web/testwww/legislative/ic/98/title12/ar15/ch19.html 17.43

The number 1.00 by the first link tells you that this link had the highest rated ranking possible and is most likely to provide you with the information you are seeking. The second link, 0.98, is only a little less likely to provide the information you are seeking.

Please read the overall seach help page for more help on searching.
