Giving priority to Wordpress Pages over posts


On my site,, our most important articles are pages, and our less important articles are posts. We want to be able to give pages more weight in search results than pages.

When we previously used Google Site Search, this happened automatically because the natural pagerank flow of our site gave our Pages more weight than our Posts.

On my swiftype dashboard under “weights” I can add a field “object_type” which I confirmed examining results in the dashboard does resolve to either “post” or “page.” But the problem is changing the impact value of object_type obviously doesn’t make a difference because the “object_type” has nothing to do with the search term.

Is there a way to make swiftype value pages more than posts?
