I have document library named Pages where all my pages are there. Every page of this library has rating control. The rating Column of the library shows stars for pages which confirms that the ratings are being saved.

Currently i am implementing search functionality for the site and want to display page rating in the search results.

I created the Managed properties for both crawled properties(OWS_averageRating and OWS_RatingCounter) and added managed properties in fetched properties of Search Core Results WebPart.

But, in the results the rating and rating Count tags are empty.

Here is the xml, which i get from Search Core Results Web Part:

      <author_multival>System Account</author_multival>
      <author>System Account</author>
      <hithighlightedsummary>summary </hithighlightedsummary>
      <popularsocialtags />
      <imageurl imageurldescription="Web Page">/_layouts/images/html16.png</imageurl>

Am i missing something. I have used these links to get ratings in search :



Could someone help me with this please....

    After adding the two managed properties you need to make a full crawl. have you done it? Apr 17, 2013 at 8:31

Make sure you perform a Full Crawl after creating the Managed Properties to populate them with data. Incremental crawl will not be enough.

  • Thanks, Worked like a charm....Problem was I used Start all Crawles instead of Full Crawl.

  • I've done the same mistake myself, too many times! Apr 17, 2013 at 11:46

Have you checked whether the appropriate timer jobs have been properly executing??

  • User Profile Service Application - Social Data Maintenance Job - Aggregates social tags and ratings and cleans the social data change log.

  • User Profile Service Application - Social Rating Synchorization Job - Synchronizes rating values between the social database and content

  • Both are Scheduled on Hourly Basis.
