I am in the process of customizing the search results for a SharePoint 2010 site collection. Part of this site collection contains a document library I created to store some documents on one of the sites. Each one of the documents has been given a title via the document library interface. When this list is searched via the search center, documents return with either a metadata or heading title instead of the document library title. I have done some searching and found that it is possible to customize the search to use the document library title so long as the column's metadata is being crawled. I have two questions about this:
- How can I tell that the document library's metadata is being crawled? I assumed that the data is already being crawled, but I have no real way to verify this.
- When I am viewing the Managed Properties list via the Central Administration Search Service Application page, how do I know what the property names are mapped to on the site? I see some entries such as 'ows_Title', but these properties never have any items in the index actually using the property (even after checking 'Include values for this property in the search index' and running a Full Crawl).
