Is there any tool available for tuning custom or existing ranking models in SharePoint search. Or we have to improve relevancy using available options in SharePoint search like query rules, authorities etc? Any help will be appreciated

Is there a specific issue you are having with search? –  Ryan Erickson Mar 23 '13 at 4:58
    
Yes I crawled some websites and external repositories, and I want to improve search relevance. There are no of options available in SharePoint to improve search relevancy. but I want to add some custom ranking model for tuning according to my needs. Creating custom ranking model without using any available tool is quite difficult task. –  Ahsan Abbas Mar 26 '13 at 5:45

I have not seen much in the way of third party products that affect search ranking. Most books say to use the tools exposed through the central admin UI to affect page ranking, like authorative pages.
