SharePoint 2013 Crawl complex URLs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello folks, thank you for taking a look.

    I am wondering if anyone has successfully been able to crawl complex URLs in SharePoint 2013.  I have a farm where I have set up a crawl rule to include these links:

    I have a content editor web part set up on the root page of SharePoint 2013 (i.e. /pages/default.aspx).  In this CEWP, I have added a few links to SharePoint content with query string variables at the end (i.e. pages/videos.aspx?vid=123456)

    The crawl log shows that default.aspx is being crawled just fine, but crawler is not picking up the links in the CEWP.  

    As a side note, I have set up the site to crawl all webpart content regardless of permissions:

    What am I missing here?

    Thanks in advance,


    EDIT 03/10/2014

    There seems to be some confusion so I want to be clear.  Content from my CEWP is being crawled successfully by SharePoint.  When I search for content on the CEWP, it is returned on the search results page.  The problem is that I expect the crawler to follow links on the CEWP which it is not doing.  

    As mentioned above, the use case is a dynamic page in which video content is loaded based on an ID value in the query string.
