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.
