    Just to add…It was the fact the crawl had not been ran which caused my searching to not function correctly! Thanks for the guide above, helped me achieve what I needed.

    Central admin -> Search Service Application – > Crawling (located left column) – > Content sources

    Create one or run the one that appears!

    Good luck!

    Hi Jiniv,

    Once you finished the SSA creation you have to configure with SERVICE CONNECTION.(go to manage web application – select the respective web app = go to Ribbon and select the SERVICE CONNECTION where 2 groups are available 1.default 2.custom select custom and select the search service application which you have created) now go for crawling process…this will work definitely. (I think he forgot to mention about service connection)
