AddSearch crawls your website and takes screen captures of your web pages to show them next to the search results.

Some websites have obtrusive elements, such as a cookie consent view or a newsletter popup, that appear after the page is loaded. They may also end up in the screen capture. If this is the case, the screen captures might not look optimal.


To hide the obtrusive elements, add the following JavaScript on your website:

if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('AddSearchBot') == -1) {
  // Not AddSearch crawler
  // Show the obtrusive elements like a cookie consent
  // or "join our newsletter" modal
