I have a publishing page library containing all of my posts. We are using search driven webparts to pull the search results and display to users. What we are seeing is that after a new page is added, it is not indexed during the next incremental crawls (let's say 10-15 incremental crawls have run) or several full crawls. Then, suddenly, the scheduled crawls will magically pick it up. This is problematic because there are time-sensitive posts that need to show on the site relatively quickly.

Is this a bug in sharepoint? What triggers the incremental or full crawls to pick up that a new page has been added that I am missing. The pages are are fully published and approved and none of the settings about search result removal/library settings/etc are causing this - without changing anything else, the new page will be indexed and show in the crawl logs.

Anyone have any ideas? We're still stuck on this one.

  • Are the pages published or still drafts? – Matthew McDermott Feb 5 '16 at 13:58
  • Published and approved. – Steve-o-reeno Feb 5 '16 at 16:01
  • Nothing showing in the crawl logs? – Matthew McDermott Feb 5 '16 at 20:59
  • Correct, not showing in the crawl logs until.. let's say... 4 or 6 hours later. – Steve-o-reeno Feb 5 '16 at 21:03

    Was this resolved? I am facing the same issue – Vikas Sharma Jun 19 '18 at 7:58
