Question: How can I minimize my search results?
With the addition of more and more content to the intranet, the search results will begin to grow as well. Have a look at the suggestions below to reduce the amount of results that display.
First, try re-indexing your site content. You can access this by going to admin > Site Search Options and clicking 'Re-index my site data'. Next, use the 'Keyword Search Settings' field to list words that the search should ignore (eg, and|a|is|the|then|). Here is a sample list you can use:
On the same page, you can choose a 'Default Sort Column' that may make more sense in your organization (default is 'Title').
Also, turning off full-text indexing may help reduce the number of unwanted search results. You should be able to turn this off by going to admin > Applications > manage indexes (button on the right) and clicking 'delete all collections'.
One recommendation is implementing the use of 'Tags' as a your primary method for indexing site content. You should be able to tag forms with keywords that a user would logically type in when looking for that piece of content. For example, I would tag the 'Time off Request Form' form with tags like; vacation, request, time, form.
