Monday, April 27, 2009 10:25 PMI am running a search here
I am running a query on parislasvegas.com, and trying to exclude all addresses with "EventsDetail.do" as part of the URL string.
As you can see, when I run the query, results with "EventsDetail.do" are still included. This is the first link that shows up in the results.
Also, I am trying to hide pages that contain "MakeReservations.do" in the URL string. I try to do this by running the search as
Same deal. The second link that shows up in the results is http://www.parislasvegas.com/MakeReservation.do?propCode=CLV&packageCode=ICC2M , so the filter is not working.
The plot thickens when I strip out all results with "propCode" in the URL string. If I run the search as http://api.search.live.net/xml.aspx?Appid=<AppId>&query=cher%20-propCode(site%3Aparislasvegas.com)&sources=web , the results are properly filtered. What is going on here?

If they are not in the index, they are not in the results by definition

I noticed the website is not using a robots.txt. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your domain name in the subject line and I will work through this with you.
