Slicer’s search results are currently not as helpful as they could be. For example, the top results for the following searches are almost all outdated versioned wiki pages (often 3.6 or very early 4.x series):
Considering that we are now de facto using nightly as a rolling release, I’d like to propose excluding older wiki documentation versions from indexing by using the following entry in the slicer.org robots.txt. (if that’s too extreme, we could also allow
Disallow: /wiki/Documentation/* Allow: /wiki/Documentation/Nightly/*
It may also be useful to disallow searching the images folder, which will prevent old PDF versions from being indexed:
The upshot would be better control over visibility and versioning by eliminating direct PDF links in search results, but I’m not sure about downside ramifications if any.
