We create and editable template in AEM 6.5 where we utilised an Experience Fragment as the Footer. The pages created from the editable template is seeing the footer in these pages as part of the content and therefore showing up in the site search. 

 

The current footer on rest of site (build in past AEM versions) the author can update, without requiring a deployment, but was excluded from Search as it was Inherited Paragraph, not seeing the option in AEM 6.5.

 

Before we attempt changing the template to hardcode the footer and not allow the author to update and only change with code and deployment.  Is there perhaps recommendation for the forum on an other option with editable template.

Hi @Elbie47,

If you are using Query Builder for Site Search functionality, we can make use of excludepaths to exclude experience fragments(/content/experience-fragments/.*) from appearing in search results

https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-65/developing/platform/query-builder/quer...

Based on the way site search logic is implemented, we can control search results at query level and/or at index level.

Please let know your search implementation details to arrive at its respective approach.
