  • To get Internet Search results for a search query just add a Federated Search Web part to the results page in your Search Center.  Then configure it to point to Bing.com.  Your regular queries will return two results sets, one from internal search and one from Bing.  They will be shown as two lists on the search results page.  Here's an article that discusses how to do it.

  • Also can we link to Google Search Engine ?

  • Here's an article on how to add a search vertical.  Its essentially a different search results page with the federated search web part configured for the search service you want to use.

    But in general federated search is designed to bring in an extra set of results, not a single set of results from a different source.  It should work, but its not the original expectation.

  • Unfortunately Google does not use the Open Search standard, so there is no way that I know of to do this with the Google search engine.

  • Thanks. Which are the other search engines which support SharePoint 2013 ? I mean Search engine which uses Open Search Standard

  • YOu can check this page on the OpenSearch.org site for lists of search engines that support the OpenSearch standard.

  • Instead of connecting to search engine, there is an option to crawl the external web sites. We can add list of web sites and crawl those sites.

    Under Search Service Application: Manage Content Sources - New Content Source - There is option called Web Sites for Content Source Type. 

    This is also an  option right.

  • Yes you can add specific external web sites as a content source.  It depends on how many Internet sites you want to Index.  If its a limited number that's fine.  But your initial request was to search the Internet.  I don't think you really want to try to Index the whole Internet using your search environment.  Federated Search lets you leverage the crawling that someone else has already done.

  • In the document libary, there is a microsoft word document which has more than 100 pages. The user will search for  a specific sentence in one of the section inside the document using SharePoint 2013 search.

    The user will get the search document link in the search result page.

    Is there any option in SharePoint itself or using Third Party Plug in , when the user clicks on the search result link, the document will open the exact page where the search keyword is present ?

  • None that I am aware of.  The problem is that SharePoint isn't in control when the document is opened.  The document is opened by either Office Web Apps or Word on the desktop.  So you would need some way for SharePoint to provide them with the location in the document where the search string is.  I don't know of anything that will do that.
