How important do you think awareness of IR (information retrieval) is for SEO’s

Information retrieval is the science of searching for information in a document, searching for documents themselves, and also searching for the metadata that describes data, and for databases of texts, images or sounds.
I don’t think it hurts for SEOs to understand how some of the basics behind search work?
