This is WIP (Work in Progress).


This article attempts at describing how organic Enterprise Search results from the Google Search Appliance can be fused with a Social Bookmarking system.

For the position article and benefits related to the same topic, please refer to Fusing Enterprise Search and Social Bookmarking written by Jeremy Thomas.

What are we trying to achieve

The aim of the fusion results is to enable the user to view the following results as part of the organic search results returned by the GSA.
1) Tagging - This allows user to see what tags the link has been associated with by other knowledge workers
2) Saved by - This allows the user to see how many times a organic search link has been saved by other knowledge workers

Normal Search Results

Below is a screenshot of the organic search results that is returned by the GSA after a query is made.
