I have a Sharepoint list with 2 columns. The first column is called "Description" and is a multiple lines column. In the second column called "Keywords" i want to use it to specify keywords that the first column contains.

I could use the column Title to specify the keywords but the column Title is limited to 255 characters. So i have used the Metadata column where i can store multiple keywords. But how can I use the metadata column for searching?

Managed metadata column could be searched in the whole site by default. Normally you could use Managed Metadata when dealing with cross site publishing or global search-related metadata.

For searching, if you create a managed metadata column, just wait for a while, then the result will appear in the search box after you type in the kerwords:
