The Exact match boost increases the ranking of exact phrases from the documents that match a search term containing two or more words.

Since the exact match boost amplifies the visibility of the documents with exact matches, it is useful when your customer knows the search term precisely.

For instance, your customer may be looking for a specific phone model, a car spare part, a book title, or a university course.
