Indexing Best Practice


After the site has been indexed for the first time is it enough just to rely on the pages being indexed/reindexed when saved, or should you still reindex the whole site on occasion?  If so should this be every week, every month?

Just wanted to get peoples thoughts?

Hi Andrew,

You should be able to rely on the on the evented indexing. The scheduled job is mostly there to index the site for the first time. Implemented as a scheduled job so that it can run in a separate thread and not be killed by the IIS process if it runs over the IIS pool thread time.

There can of course be reasons to run the job scheduled if you extended the indexing to include other sources that isn't abel to push data. For only indexing the CMS content you will be fine with the evented indexing.

Hi Andrew,

When using CMS 6 changes in ACL for VPP files don't trigger an event and therefore the files isn't reindexed. Therefore I would say that you sould do a reindex once a day to handle this.

Thanks for all the replys.

We currenlty are not indexing any VPP data, but its good to know that this reindex isn't always triggered.
