In Drupal 7, I'm currently using the default core search, and a view for node search results. I have a global text to pull in the replacement pattern for the term that were searched for. I get the token by adding the contextual filter Search: Search Terms I am using the replacement pattern %1 as seen in the picture:

Then I put <span class="MY-CLASS">You searched for:</span> <b> %1 </b> in my global text to display the keywords that were searched for:

This all works great for Drupal core search, but I am not finding a way to do this with the view in Search API? I am using Database Service, and a view built from the database index I created. I have tried to find a field such as keywords for the full text search, but since the view is based off of indexed content, I am not able to get those type of fields added, to make them available for tokens, even via relationships. Maybe there is a better way to build the view?

The problem I was having here is my view that I was trying to build for search API was using a full text search exposed filter rather than a contextual filter. The contextual filter provides the search term title and search term input tokens that are pictured above. The exposed filter will not produce them. Live and learn.
