Creating a search index for your DXP Content Management website

This section covers how to create a search index of your website and provide a site search.

This information only applies when using your website with DXP search.

The DXP provides two options for indexing a DXP Content Management website.

What do you want to do?

  • Index the website using a web crawler

    A web crawler will automatically discover the content on your site and periodically update the search index. The index is updated by fetching one or more start pages and following every link until all links are followed, or a time limit is reached. This option is easier to setup and maintain, but there is a delay in content changes being updated in the search, with the search index usually being updated once per day.
