How to exclude specific documents from search rather than entire document library? Search is configured for all sites and I want to exclude specific documents from search in some of sites.
This is absolutely possible. Please check the search service and then the crawl log. You can identify the specific document URL and then select remove this from index option.
- Central Administration --> Search service Administration
- Click on Crawl Logs --> Select the content source --> Click the Success Count Link
- Select the specific URL from the search bar or if it displays prominatly you can select that URL.
- Click on the drop down --> Select Remove the Item from Index
