Relevance Ranking a la Google Scholar

announces the new ranking by Google Scholar which is very very interesting. If they continue coming up with these the kind of features they will keep us (Thomson, Elsevier, CSA) awake in the night.

A search for faceted searching shows Marti Hearst's article Finding the flow in web site search which was ranked 4th with regular ranking as the second most relevant record.

Good job Scholar team.

Update: Hopefully someone from Google Scholar would explain why I get the following error

when I run my faceted search using quoation and use the Recent article ranking for I get a record Retrieval activities in a database consisting of heterogeneous collections of structured text from 1992 in the results set when All Articles is used for ranking.
