Issue: How to prevent content such as list and document libraries from being indexed?


  1. Open the Advanced Settings for a SharePoint List.
  2. Check the “No” for “Allow items from this document library to appear in search results?”

Note: SharePoint’s Object Model can also be used to programmatically set the list’s NoCrawl Property to false.
