How can I make tab names show up in search results?

When I use either the AUI Tabs macro or Navitabs plugin, my information displays on the page exactly as I want it.

However, when I run a search for any of the names of my tabs, results aren't very good. Tab names just don't show prominently in a search result.

Is there any way that I can set tab names to show as unique search results, as page names do?

Thanks very much in advance.

Not really, as the tab names are macro parameters and those aren't returned in search. You could put the tab name inside the tab as well at the top as a header or something like that (maybe and h3 or h4) and that would probably work as it would then be indexed and thus searchable.

This post was made back in November... Ive also had his problem and im wondering if there is a fix or a work around. Maybe a variable in the query string of the search would work.
