Helllo.

First, this is the first time I want to do something with search, so please explain me in detail.

We have a list called articles, it has a title, tags and content(html), is it possible to configure search to search only in that list in title and tag fields, not content?

2nd. If I just created an article, will it be searchable inmediately or not? I read somewhere that there is a scheduled service that crawls content every certain period of time, if that period is 5 minutes, the user creates an article and then searches for it and he doesnt find it, he will think that its not there and maybe post it again
Is there any workaround to this?

3rd.  When searching, is it possible that the results are organized first by the matching results from articles that I published, then from the rest of the users.

4th.  My website is going to have 3 levels of membershop,  Lets say Basic, Silver and Gold.  If a basic user search, the search shouldnt show results from silver users and gold users, Can this be done?

answers in sequence

[1] Yes, you can search the title or any other field only.
[2] The sharepoint content is searchable right after it is crawled , (Incremental crawl normally runs every 5 - 10 minutes ,)  a more frequent schedule is possible but it comes with CPU and memory and performance cost.
[3] Yes, you can customize the search results web part as needed.
[4] Yes, you can control that in conjunction with the results webpart customization using xslt.

best of luck.
