Hi There, I am using asp.net for creating page (using many web controls in that page). And to prevent my menu from being index, but the link in that page must be crawled. So I use <!--ZOOMSTOP--> tag at the first line of the page, and also <!--ZOOMRESTART--> in the end of the page. I wish that this page will not be displayed in search result, but the link inside this page must be crawled no matter what.
But I find that the page (default.aspx) is displayed in the search result, although I have used the tag to stop the whole page, is there anyone know why? Is using asp.net (<%@ microsoft tag) can prevent the zoomstop functionality? Or is there any rule of using zoomstop tag (I only know that it must be ended with ZoomRestart tag)?
The stop and restart tags need to appear in that order and in pairs. Otherwise they should always work. Regardless of the other tags on the page.
What is the URL to the page in question and for what search word does the page in question appear in the search results?
for example I have this pake
I cannot put BrowseBookBySubject in skip options (zoom), because it later on will not crawl the BookDetail because the only link to BookDetail from home is via BrowseBookBySubject.
So everytime I search a book title, the BrowseBookBySubject appear in search result, because I don't want the browse page (BrowseBookBySubject) appear in search result, I need only the BookDetail.aspx?id=001 (etc).
I have put the ZoomStop and ZoomRestart tag in the first line of BrowseBookBySubject and end line of the file, so I am sure that not any words in the file will be indexed and only the links contained in the file will be process. But still when I search the book title (which appear in Title tag of BookDetail), I can still see the BrowseBookBySubject exist in search result, am I assuming that if I enclosed the whole file with ZoomStop and ZoomRestart tag so that no word in the file will be indexed is correct? And so the file will not appear in search result?
I think the most likely explanations are,
1) You didn't use the tags correctly. What is the URL to the page?
2) The old page is being cached. You can turn of caching from the "general" tab in Zoom.
3) You didn't upload a new set of index files after re-indexing the site with the tags added.
Almost correct. You might get one of two words indexed. e.g the name of the file (BrowseBookBySubject) and maybe some link text from another pages that link to the BrowseBookBySubject page. But not the content of the page.am I assuming that if I enclosed the whole file with ZoomStop and ZoomRestart tag so that no word in the file will be indexed is correct?
for number 1 & 3, we already check for it, I think we need to try reload all files, so no cache is used. I will try that later on.
Hi, i have solved the ZOOMSTOP and ZOOMRESTART tag problems and so currently it is working quite right by checking Reload All Files (do not use cache) option in General tab.
But there is something very strange happen now, the title of my page is not displayed in search result, it displays "No Title" but the actual page has title if I click on it? Is there anything I miss out?
FYI, the page name is detailbook.aspx?idbook=001, and it depends on the idbook so that the title of the page is changing based on what book the user is viewing, so is this can cause problems so that No Title is displayed in search result? But in the earlier setting, before I checked Reload All Files, the title of each book is displayed correctly.
Check the HTML. Perhaps your <title> tag is being specified outside of the <head>... </head> ? If so, this is invalid HTML and is not picked up by Zoom. I think IE might pick it up, though this is non-standard behaviour. If you change the HTML so that the <title> is within the head section of the page, it should work fine.

above is example of the result, the title tag is inside head, and head is inside htmlCode:<!--ZOOMSTOP--> <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" > <HTML> <HEAD> <title>Modelling and forecasting the diffusion of innovation – A 25-year review </title>
FYI, i use PreRender method in ASP.NET (page pre render) to set up the title, so the title is set inside this method by looking up the idbook to database and put the title inside the title tag, which I use a <asp:literal tag
can anyone help?
Your ZOOMSTOP tag prevents the <title> from being picked up. ZOOMSTOP is used to exclude any part of the page from being indexed, and in this instance, you are excluding the header and the title as well.

1. I have tried inserting two sites (http://localhost/library/books and http://localhost/library/journals) inside the Advance spider URL Options setting (the more button in spider mode). But in my case is I try to search and the result appears to be only links come from the first site, I have already changed the keyword for journals (the second site) only keyword and the result is empty. So I guess that the crawl stopped while in the first site. Is there anything I miss out and should notice? Like limits and so on?
2. Assume that the index stops at the first site because it has reached the max in Limits configuration, can I change this value and then uses Incremental update to update? Or should I reindex the whole site after changing any Limits configuration?
3. For Example my first indexed stopped at 5000 files and the Limits Configuration allowed 1000000. And I uses incremental updates in the next indexing process. Is the next crawling starts from 0 limits again or from 5000? So I mean is this limit, a limitation for each index process or a sum up from previous indexed result?
