[htdig] same page, different ranking?

Hi,

I've installed Htdig to test it for use on our site (we currently run
Netscape Enterprise server and I don't like the built-in search).

I have a problem. If I search for the word 'john' (boss' name) at
http://kmi.open.ac.uk/search/ the top two pages found are boss' home page -
but one gets 4 'stars' while the other gets only 1. The same result for a
considerable number of other searches ('marc', 'paul', 'simon').

I've had a look through the list archive but can't find an answer. Can
anyone suggest why this might be happening?

Thanks,
Mike
