Sharepoint 2013: Missing search results in search results webpart compared to result source

Published on Author peter.stilgoe

In SharePoint 2013 / SharePoint online you may come across a weird thing where:

– You create a result source & verify the results & all appear correct

– Configure a search results webpart to use your new result source but you see numerous results missing

This is typically happening because by default the search results webpart is automatically trimming what it classes as duplicate results.

Export your OOTB search results webpart & edit the XML:

– Look for TrimDuplicates”:true

– Replace it with TrimDuplicates”:false

Now save your new search results webpart, add it to a page & compare your search results, you weren’t going mad after all 🙂
