I'm designing the Search Result Page and each result has a link and description similar to a search engine results page.

What is the best way to refer to this element? Should I call this 'Search List Item'? or 'Simple Data List'?

    Downvoters, this question is so unclear, how could you possibly know if there's any value to be extracted? Ask for clarification before reaching for the down vote button. – dennislees Jul 18 '17 at 17:33
  • Your question is unclear. Are you asking what to call the link and description? and your options currently are 'Search List Item' and 'Data List Item'? – dennislees Jul 18 '17 at 17:34
  • Thanks @dennislees for message to downvoters. my question mainly about knowing the experience. what is actually the term name for those. i guess is that Search List Item. its specific block name. what is the common name for this is kind of similar blocks – Venkat.R Jul 18 '17 at 18:35
  • Perhaps others may know different, but I don't think it really matters. Please see my answer. – dennislees Jul 18 '17 at 18:39

It doesn't really matter

When the name of an element is unclear or obvious, it matters less what something is called than how consistent you are with it.

Be Consistent, Pick & Stick

Pick something sensible and reasonable. "Search List Item" works. So does "Result". The key thing is that you make it clear (ideally in a glossary, if you have one) what the label means, and that everyone involved should use that label consistently.
