A client asked recently if system pages can be hidden from search results within SharePoint 2007. Yes, they can is the answer using Crawl Rules. To hide system related pages from search results, I added crawl rules to the SharePoint environment as follows:.
Once applied, you will need to run a full crawl.. This will result in the pages being removed from the search index. This should be completed within half an hour.
Has anyone had any experience of other additional pages that need excluding?
