Search Server 2008

Applies To: Microsoft Search Server 2008

 

Topic Last Modified: 2009-07-14

Unless otherwise noted, the information in this article applies to both Microsoft Search Server 2008 and Microsoft Search Server 2008 Express.

By default, the Search High Confidence Web Part includes settings that display an exact match of a people search. Because Search Server 2008 does not crawl or index user profile stores and does not perform people searches, the Search High Confidence Web Part does not return people search results when these settings are enabled. However, the Search High Confidence Results Web Part includes settings that enable you to display the result of many types of automatic searches. These include settings that display keyword and Best Bet search results.

Some configuration is needed for keyword and Best Bet search results to display. A site collection administrator must designate query terms as keywords for a site collection. When a keyword is defined, a site collection administrator can also list specific content items that should be returned when that keyword is included in a search query. These content items are called Best Bets and are configured in the properties of a keyword. For more information, see Add keyword terms with Best Bets (Search Server 2008).

NoteNote:
The Search High Confidence Results Web Part and the Search Best Bets Web Part contain identical properties. However, the default values of these properties differ. The Search High Confidence Web Part properties are configured to display results that are defined as high confidence, which are exact matches to people searches. By default, the properties that control keyword and Best Bet search results are not configured to be displayed. The Best Bets Web Part is configured by default to display keyword and Best Bet results, but not to display results defined as high confidence.

Use this procedure to configure the properties of the Search High Confidence Web Part.

Configure Search High Confidence Results Web Part properties
  1. In the Search Center, open the search results page. On the Search Results page, click the Site Actions menu, and then click Edit Page. The Search Results page opens in Edit mode.

  2. In the Search High Confidence Results Web Part, expand the Edit menu, and then click Modify Shared Web Part.

  3. In the tool pane, expand the Keywords node. The settings in this section display only if a site collection administrator has defined keywords on the Manage Keywords page. For more information, see Add keyword terms with Best Bets (Search Server 2008). Keyword results are not configured to display in this Web Part, by default.

    • Select the Display keyword check box if you want to include administrator-defined keywords as part of the search results. For more information on administrator-defined keywords, see Add keyword terms with Best Bets (Search Server 2008).

    • Select the Display definition check box if you want to include administrator-defined keyword definitions as part of the search results.

  4. In the tool pane, expand the Best Bets node. By default, Best Bet results are not configured to display in this Web Part.

    • Select the Display title check box if you want to display the titles of the content items that are returned as Best Bet search results.

    • Select the Display description check box if you want to display the administrator-defined descriptions of the content items that are returned as Best Bet search results.

    • Select the Display URL check box if you want to display the URLs of the content items that are returned as Best Bet search results.

    • In the Best Bets limit box, type the maximum number of items that you want to be displayed as Best Bet search results.

  5. In the tool pane, the High Confidence Matches node provides options dealing with people search. Search Server does not perform people searches and will not display people search results even if these options are configured to do so.

  6. In the tool pane, expand the Miscellaneous node.

    • Select the Show Messages check box if you want to display error messages in this Web Part. By default, this check box is not selected.

    • In the Sample Data box, type an XML string that includes the kind of data returned in the search results.

    • In the XSL Link box, type the URL of an Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) file that contains custom XSL for this Web Part. If you configure this setting, the Sample Data property value is ignored. By default, this box contains no text.

    • Select the Enable Data View Caching check box if you want Search Server to cache these search results. By default, this check box is selected.

    • In the Data View Caching Time-out (Seconds) box, type the number of seconds that you want search results to remain in the cache. The default setting is 86400 seconds, which is 24 hours.

    • Select the Send first row to connected Web Parts when page loads check box if you want this Web Part to send its highest-rated match to other connected Web Parts so that it can be displayed as part of the search results in other Web Parts. Only those Web Parts that have the same value in the Cross-Web Part Query ID property can receive this data. By default, this check box is selected.

  7. In the tool pane, expand the Data View Properties section, click XSL Editor to open a window that displays the XSL that controls how the search results are displayed. You can edit the XSL in this window.

  8. After making the changes that you want to the property values, click OK to close the tool pane.
