Article Custom Field values as searchable


I have added few custom fields to the article object where there are already 3 standard fields (Title, URL and Summary). Some of the custom fields are pick lists fields and it has few number of values in it. While creating an article, user will choose all these custom fields and saves the article. Now lets say the user has few number of articles which are created using these custom fields. 

My question is, How to make the custom fields' values are searchable for the articles? i.e. if the user searches for an article from search bar, then it should search based on the values of those custom fields also. 

Please advise.
