Wordpress sorting/view question

Hi,

When I’m in WP and I type in a recipe to find, on some sites, it brings it up as the first result. But on another WP site, I type in a recipe word for word as it’s published and I’ll have to go through a page or two of results and then find the recipe I searched for.

This is only behind the scenes within WordPress, not on the published front side of the blog.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why I have those different results and where I need to tweak my settings. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Suggestions?

Thanks!
