How do You Verify the Results of Your Search on Search Results Page?

The answer to this question is rather simple. At first instance, we need to know where the data is coming from. Are they coming from a database? Or some XML files from 3rd party websites?
Once we have this information, we can start comparing the results we see on the result page with the results from the source, e.g. database.
Another option is to use mocks to generate the data that we need so we can fully control the data that we see on the search results page.
