Search URL is broken in SharePoint Online or Office 365


In  my SharePoint online team site, the search link is broken. When I click on search, I get the following error

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage and the URL which I get for search look strange:

SharePoint-Online-Team-Site-Search-not-working

 

When I click on the search this is the error message I am getting

SharePoint-Online-Team-Site-Search-not-working-error

 

How did I resolve the search problem in SharePoint online?

Site Actions | Site Settings | click on Go to top level site settings  under Site Collection Administration and click on Site hierarchy

sharepoint-online-site-settings

In Site hierarchy, you will see your search url

sharepoint-online-site-search-url

 

Copy your search URL  and go to  Site Settings  | Top Link Bar  | Edit Navigation Link  |for Search and click ok

 

edit-search-url-in-sharpoint-online

 

edit-search-url-in-sharpoint-online-2

 

Now if you go back to your team site and click on search, you will see your search site where you can search in SharePoint Online.
