Are blog entries searchable? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have recently deployed SP2013 corporate wide and some employees have started blogging. Some of the information they are putting out there are very helpful tips and tricks. However, I do not see any blog posts in the search results. I have to think these posts can be search results. I have tried to search the Internet, but it seems that because I am using the word blog the only results I am getting back are blog posts about searching. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thank you!

  • Yes blog is very much searchable may be they are not ranked top. Please look at below link where you can create a separate BLOG search scope so that user can only search blog.

    SharePoint 2010 Search: Show up all blog entries from different sites at one place

    In another way, you can use a search result webpart to show all blog post which will be displayed from search.

  • Yes, Blogs post are searchable in SharePoint 2013 Search. You just need to do the following.

    1. Make sure the Blog URL must be present in the content source. 

    2. If the Blog site is part of other farm, make sure the include crawl rule created & the user must have full read permission for that site collection. 

    3. If you still not able to get the desire results check the search logs (if there any error against for specific)

    Please let me know if there any issue.
