Sharepoint online search displaying duplicates even though remove duplicates option is selected in search results web part query settings


  • We have actual document in root site and we have link to that document in subsite added through "link to document" content type in subsite library. Now when we search for that document from root site, it displays both 1) actual document from root site document library and link to same document from subsite document library. Why does sharepoint not hide it as both can be considered as duplicates ?

    Is there a way to handle this situation ? Let say if link to documents are added in subsites and if document is searched from root site then only once search result should be shown for that document from root site instead of showing document as well as link to same document coming from subsite.
