I have been asked to investigate why it is displaying this message? above the result item.

Your query is tripping the out of the box "People Expertise Search" Query rule. You will find the definition in the SSA (or Site Collection) Query Rules under "Local People Results". enter image description here

  • No...it is still happening even though the settings is "Stop". I did find it strange that it happens when you search using one term, for example if I search for full name it won't show up.
