I have a site which contain a few lists. When I search something in my site then it returns following result:


I only want to display DispForm.aspx in search results and EXCLUDE AllItems.aspx and other views.

I set following crawl rule in CA but it excludes all results and doesn't bring anything when searching something.


I searched on this topic and each person is telling a different story. Some say to define query rule some say to define result sources, some say this, some say that etc.

What is sure fire way of doing this?

I had gone through the same exercise and a good post by Mikael Svenson on doing just that helped me.

If you append -contentclass:STS_List_* to your query template within the query rule or result source, these views will all be excluded. In effect all list landing pages will be removed including:

  • AllItems.aspx
  • AllPages.aspx
  • AllPosts.aspx
  • AllCategories.aspx
  • Calendar.aspx
  • Overview.aspx

The way to get to the query builder for a Result Source is

Go to Search Administration in CA --> Result Sources --> New Result Source

Click Launch Query Builder

  • The query template would be the query field that is available to you when you create a result source. I have added a screenshot above. Aug 18, 2016 at 13:41
