Good morning swish-e folks!
Is there an easy way to configure swish-e to ignore a few entire
sentences common to 400+ html/php pages?
Here's what's going on:
I've got a website with roughly 500 html and php pages. On roughly
400-425 of those pages, there are two "welcome" sentences at the top
of the page. Those sentences have been given CSS class="subtitle".
Additionally, there's another random sentence on quite a number of
pages, like "Find out more about this subject." These sentences are
not given any special font class. An example of a welcome sentence
would be 'Welcome to ABC, voted the best widget company."
Swish-e search results are pulling the 'welcome' sentences and placing
them at the very beginning of each search result. When someone
searches for a key word, the first 15-25 words of each result are the
welcome sentences. The random 'find out more...' sentences also often
show up in search results, making the swish-e results contaminated
with useless data.
I am familiar with configuring swish-e to ignore individual words
(with the stopwords file) and to even ignore meta names like <h1> or
<h3>, which I have done successfully.
I didn't find any info on how to ignore a particular sentence or
multi-word phrase, especially sentences that aren't using a tag like
<h3>, but rather a CSS class or no class at all.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. Is there a way to instruct swish-e to ignore entire divs within
an html/php page?
