Exclude pages and page types from search index

Vote:
 

Hi,

I have a question regarding search (not Find) in EPiServer 7. I'm wondering how I can prevent a page (or an entire page type) from beeing indexed. I guess I need to do something in the DocumentAdding event but I can't figure out what. Or is there another way to do it?

You could add a post search filter that removes certain pages depending an a property value or on page type name. 

Here I do a reording depending on a boolean property: http://world.episerver.com/Blogs/Per-Nergard/Dates/2013/10/Let-editors-set-pages-to-always-be-on-top-in-search-result-SearchDataSource-not-Find/.

You need to rewrite the filter method to fit your need.

Thank you for the links Per, probably should have mentioned that the site I'm building is MVC based.

Anyhow, support pointed out the ISearchable interface for me and I wrote a short summary on how to use it: http://jonas.kihlsten.se/blog/2013/11/episerver-7search-prevent-content-from-being-indexed/
