Microsoft is getting all Ballmerish about enterprise search.

When I read that Microsoft is serious about competing with Google in the enterprise search arena, I couldn't help but snicker, knowing that their enterprise search solution is SharePoint.

Well, it prompted me to do some reading, and it looks like they've been busy. This could get interesting.

SharePoint portals seem to be wildly popular for departmental collaboration, but from an intranet search engine administrator's perspective they can be a bit of a nightmare. They have some crawling gotchas that you need to be aware of, and they also seem to encourage the posting of lots of large Microsoft Office documents.
