Hi I have this SharePoint 2010 Search Server running, the search results are appearing fine in the results page, but when I click on the link nothing happens. It does not go to the search result link nor does it opens the page in a new tab in the search link. There seems to be no response regardless how many links [result links] you click after search result links are populated. Any help?

  • Are you using the OOB Master Page or is it customized? Have you tried different browsers? Jan 30, 2018 at 14:25

  4. Create a new page and add search box web part and search results web part to check if the same issue will occur.
