Excluding content

Exclude content within pages, or specify certain content to be included in the search

AddSearch detects automatically the main content in your pages and indexes only that main content. This makes the search results better, as superfluous content (such as sidebars, headers, footers etc.) and duplicate content is not included in the search. Sometimes you might want to manually make sure that certain content is included in or excluded from the search. You can insert tags into your pages to mark such content. See full instructions on Including & excluding content.

Exclude pages from the search index

If you don’t want certain site areas or pages to appear in the search, you can do that easily by logging in to the AddSearch Dashboard and using the Site Areas tool under Manage results. This is the easiest method, where you don’t need to touch any of your site’s code. You can also use robots.txt, robots meta tags and NOFOLLOW attributes in links.
