    Yes, the higher the score the more relevant the result is to the search terms.

    The value depends on,

    • The number of times the searched term appears in that document / E-Mail.
    • The number of search terms that appears on the page in the case of a multi-word search.
    • The individual words that form part of an "exact phrase" query.
    • The density of the search terms in the document.
    • Whether the word(s) appear in the title, meta description, meta keywords, header tags part of the page or in the file name.
