Getting the relevant results is critical for the success of the community. This article provides an overview of the content search (like where and what it looks for).
When searching for content, Jive searches in content items available for users as follows:
- Subject: Title field of content items
- Body: Content of content items
- Tags: Tags added to content items
The relevancy scores for the items then order the results when users search for a specific search phrase.

These parameters are explained in detail in Search Relevance.
