  2. 2. Me, me, me… e, me, me… I consider myself a ―SharePoint All-Rounder‖. My job tasks vary including Administration, Development, Training, Analysis, UAT and Project Management. My job changes daily based on the crazy life of an IT fellow in corporate America, but it keeps things interesting! I am have worked with SharePoint for almost six years. I do not consider myself an expert but have a fair amount of knowledge with the technology and currently use it daily in my career. If I don’t know an answer to one of your questions, I will try to find it out or point you in the right direction! SharePoint Business Analyst & Technical Project Manager JDSU Matthew J.

  7. 7. Where Did You Find All This Stuff? • At time of this presentation, there are 2 official study guides available for the 70-331 & 70-332 exams and highlights were referenced from these. Objective 4.4: Manage search • For the 70-488 & 70-499, there are no study guides released yet (but some are expected in a couple months). Information for these exams was gathered from other’s in the SharePoint community & the Microsoft certification website. • The 77-419 (MOS SharePoint) exam has been delayed until June of 2014, criteria for this could change at any time. * Remember, these are guidelines, not rules. Microsoft can alter the content in their exams at any time, so overprepare (IMHO). Twitter: @SPSChicago Hashtag #SPSChicago 7 | SharePoint Saturday Chicago 2013

  10. 10. Search in Exam 70-331 (MCSE) Core Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 1.1 Result Sources • • Used to scope search results to a certain type of content or subset of search results. Used to federate queries with the local SharePoint index, a remote SharePoint index, OpenSearch, or a Microsoft Exchange Server index. Used to be called search scopes in prior versions Unlike 2010, result sources can be created & configured by site collection administrators, site owners, and site designers for use at the site collection and site levels. Search service administration privileges are still required for creating farm-scoped result sources. There are some preconfigured results sources that are included with a SharePoint install. Objective 4.4: Manage search • • • * EXAM TIP: Although search scopes are deprecated, they can still be viewed and used in queries. They cannot, however, be edited in SharePoint 2013; if you need to change a scope, you will instead need to replace it with a new result source that accomplishes the same function More Resources http://technet.microsoft.com/library/jj683115.aspx Twitter: @SPSChicago Hashtag #SPSChicago 10 | SharePoint Saturday Chicago 2013

Search in Exam 70-331 (MCSE) Core Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 1.4 Search Engine Optimization (SEO) settings • There are three distinct levels of SEO configuration within SharePoint 2013: • Publishing pages • Site collection • XML site mapping A publishing page on a SharePoint site can be configured with a series of SEO properties: • Name, Title, Browser Title, Meta Description, Keywords, Exclude From Internet Search Engines A site that has anonymous access can also enable the search engine Sitemap feature. This feature by generating a sitemap that auto-regenerates. It will also add two additional fields to the SEO properties page, Sitemap Priority and Sitemap Change Frequency. • Sitemap Priority - indicates the weighting (0.0 - 1.0) of the importance of a page. • Sitemap Change Frequency - tells how regularly you expect the pages to change Objective 4.4: Manage search • • • EXAM TIP: Be familiar with the structure of a meta tag and the way it can be added for your Internet–facing SharePoint site.

When a query is made via search (for instance, a series of Word documents), the result set that is returned is evaluated for the way the returned information should be presented. The Result Type defines the fields for evaluating the result set in terms of conditions and actions: • 1. Conditions: For the Microsoft Word result set, two conditions are evaluated: • A. Which result source should the item match? (All sources) • B. What types of content should match? (Microsoft Word) • 2. Actions: One action is applied, consisting of two parts: • A. What should these results look like? (Word item) • B. What is the appropriate display template URL?

This metadata can be structured content (columns such as title, author) or unstructured (such as keywords extracted from the body of the document). In order for a user to be able to search on a piece of metadata, this crawled property must be mapped to a managed property. After this task is complete, queries can be performed against this metadata (such as looking up an item’s order number, stored in a list column). • EXAM TIP: Be familiar with the configuration and process of converting a crawled property to a managed property.
