Customizing Search Results
Published: May 2010
After you enter a query in the search box, the browser is redirected to the search results page. Your query terms are passed to this page as part of the URL's query string. For example:
The search query passed to this page is then submitted to the Search service application, which then returns the search results to the requesting page as XML data. The XML data is then transformed by the search Web Parts into the HTML that is displayed on the search results page by using XSLT Transformation (XSLT) code.
Following are the search results Web Parts in SharePoint Enterprise Search:
Federated Results Displays search results from the specified federated search location.
People Search Core Results Displays the people search results.
Refinement Panel Displays a summary of search results and enables users to filter results.
Related Queries Displays the related searches for a particular user query.
Search Best Bets Displays high-confidence results.
Search Core Results Displays the search results for a user's query.
Search Summary Displays the summary for a user's query.
Top Federated Results Displays the top result from the configured federated search location.
