How to add people search on non sharepoint site. There is a departmental website (.net asp.net site) where that department wants to implement sp people search on their website. How would you accomplish this (thru web services)?
You can use the standard search webservice that is delivered with sharepoint: http://url/_vti_bin/search.asmx
create a separate scope that includes all people (content-class:SPSPeople) and use that scope in the query that your define. Creating a query this way makes sure that only people are returned.
