I have a subsite where I would need to return results. The results will be similar to the out of the box Local SharePoint Sites except that results will be coming from a specific subsite.
I know that the Path: is both used in the resulting query regardless whether I define it in Result Source or the Search Result webpart. What are the differences between defining a new result source compared to simple defining it the query of the search result webpart? It seems like it will achieve the same.
The contents of either approach have already been crawled by the Local SharePoint Site. I read some articles saying that creating a new result source will create an index for the subsite that I want, but isn't the same thing happening if I simply define the path as the parameter in my search result webpart?
