All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s search.php file or in a site-specific plugin:
<?php // Replace the_exerpt() with: $excerpt = get_the_excerpt(); $keys = explode(" ",$s); $excerpt = preg_replace('/('.implode('|', $keys) .')/iu', '<strong class="search-excerpt"></strong>', $excerpt); echo $excerpt; ?>
