Why aren't my guides showing up in my search results?
Because of the large amount of data stored in LibGuides, we update the search index every weeknight.
So any changes you make to your guide (including publishing your guide) can take up to 24 hours to appear when searching or looking at lists of guides by subject.
This means that:
- guides you publish will not show up in search results immediately after you publish them;
- searching on content you just updated will not immediately return those guides in the search results;
- guides you just associated with subjects will not immediately show up when you search for guides in that subject category.
If your guide is still not showing in the results list when searching the next day, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know:
a) the search term you were using, and
b) the name and URL of the guide you expected to see in the search results.
Unpublished and Private guides are not indexed, and therefore will not show up in the search results.
