I'm trying to setup the Search functionality in SharePoint Server 2010, but I'm having trouble getting it working. I have set up a crawler for the site with a user that has Full Read permissions to everything. I also set up a crawl rule for the site including
all items in the path with the "Follow links on the URL without crawl itself" option checked.
The crawler runs across the entire Site Collection and sub-sites, but I keep seeing warnings that content was excluded and the search can return no results. The error message I keep seeing is "The content for this address was excluded by the crawler
because this item was marked with a no-index meta-tag. To index this item, remove the meta-tag and recrawl."
I have looked for a no-index meta-tag, and have been unable to find it anywhere. I have also done searching on this issue, and set site settings to Always index all WebParts and to Appear in Search Results. Neither of those settings appear to have helped.
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong, or know of good documentation that could point me in the right direction?
