A while back, Kevin Williams pointed out to me that certain web sites could be searched in Google Chrome using the syntax <ur> query in the address bar. For example, once I have been to youtube.com, I can later type in youtube to initiate a search...
Last weekend, I gave my introduction to Enterprise Search talk where I showed the basics of using search.  One of the topics I covered is how to use federated search to display results from an external web site.  I’ve seen this topic come up...
I have posted in the past about how to create a scope display group using the API, but I think new users to Enterprise Search could use some information on the basics of working with scope display groups.  The begin with we need to start off by defining...
I see this topic come up quite a bit.  You have a set of search results, and the user just wants to see the documents, not the folder that contains the documents.  Consider the following example, when I query for accounting documents below....
A while back, I wrote a post on how to customize the search results page .  I focused on some of the options with the CoreResultsWebPart (or CRWP as I call it), but today I thought of some more things to discuss in regards to the XSLT document that...
A colleague asked me today how he could formulate a search query by content type today.  I figured it was as simple as doing  a keyword query by content source , but wasn’t sure so I decided to go check.  I took a look and there is a ContentType...
I needed to do a quick proof of concept of displaying search results in Silverlight recently and it actually proved easier than I thought it was going to be.  I tried this once before in a beta version of Silverlight 2 and it was much more difficult...
I had a few questions about this recently, so I thought I would write a quick post on it.  It’s actually pretty simple to set up, but I know people like to see instructions with pictures.  It’s really not much different than setting up any other...
I had the opportunity to present a couple of talks on Enterprise Search this weekend at SharePoint Saturday Ozarks .  Kyle Kelin and I drove out there on Friday and we attended a great speakers dinner.  Mark Rackley did a great job on running...
I’ve seen quite a few posts in the forums about people wanting to not search the contents of documents.  These people for whatever reason were interested in just the title and path being searched.  Out of the box, this of course is not possible...
I am sticking with my series of introductory Enterprise Search topics today by writing up some details on how to index a file share.  Setting up a file share index is pretty simple, but there are a few things to know, so that is the point of today...
I’ve made quite a few Enterprise Search posts and since I have a few talks coming up, I thought it might be a good idea to group up some of the posts for people that may be new learning it.  I hope you may find some of these useful. Customization...
I’ve seen a number of posts by people asking about how to customize the search results screen in MOSS Enterprise Search, so I thought I would take a little bit of time to describe how to do it.  Since this goes well with the two new talks I am building...
I am working on a talk about how to get data out of Enterprise Search for #SPSOzarks .  One of my clients particularly has asked me a lot on this subject.  Sure you can get to the data by using the API with KeywordQuery , FullTextSqlQuery ,...
I’ve been working on putting some stuff together for my talks at SharePoint Saturday Ozarks ( #SPSOzarks ) and ran into this interesting issue.  Now this may just be an isolated incident, but I have discovered a few errors that occur when trying...
