I have a site with Drupal 7 with Apache Solr & rate module. In this site I have a content type that can be rated but search results are not being biased towards the better rated content.

If I go here: admin/config/search/apachesolr/env-solr/bias I found 3 kinds of biasing:

  • result biasing
  • type biasing
  • field biasing

None of these sections/tabs give me an option to bias the search results to the content that has a better rating.

I know I can relate a View with the search and order the content by rating, but that's not biasing exactly.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I think the Apache Solr Voting API module is just what you're looking for. It seems to have grown out of this issue. In limited testing I found that enabling it does add a bias setting for vote rankings:
