1.Use PowerShell to back up search in SharePoint Server.

 Backup-SPFarm -Directory <BackupFolder> -BackupMethod {Full | Differential} -Item "Farm\Shared Services\Shared Services Applications\<SearchServiceApplicationName>" [-Verbose]

2.Use Central Administration to back up search in SharePoint Server.
Go to Central Administration -> Backup and Restore -> Perform a backup -> Expand Shared Services -> Expand Shared Services Applications -> Select the search service application -> Select Backup Type -> Fill in Backup File Location.

Such as before you install the CU, change or add search index.
