DigitalGov Search > Admin Center > YourSite > Manage Content > Domains

Enter the applicable domains, subdomains, or folders to return results specific to your website. You do not need to include http:// as we recognize domains with or without it.

Entire Site(s)

  • List yoursite.gov (without www) to search your entire site, including all subdomains.
  • List yoursite.gov and yoursite2.gov to search multiple sites.

Specific Subdomains

  • List www.yoursite.gov to include only the primary 'www' domain.
  • List subdomain.yoursite.gov to include subdomains.

Specific Directories

List yoursite.gov/folder to include folders. Note: this will include all sub-folders (if they exist), i.e. yoursite.gov/folder/folder2.

You cannot specify individual URLs.

Searches that start three or more subfolders deep cannot use our default configuration. Email us for assistance.


Troubleshooting Tip: You can exclude specific subdomains or folders using any of the following options.

  1. List the excluded subdomains or folders in your robots.txt (External link) file. This blocks them from all crawlers that follow the robots exclusion protocol, including Google.com and Bing.com.

  2. Exclude them by omission. For example, to exclude subdomain3, list only subdomain1.yoursite.gov, subdomain2.yoursite.gov, and subdomain4.yoursite.gov.

  3. Email us at search@support.digitalgov.gov to filter them from your site's search results. Note that this option should be used only if the other options aren't feasible as it can have an undesired effect on other features such as the display of spelling suggestions and relevance ranking.

Troubleshooting Tip: You can remove or filter specific URLs using any of the following options.

  1. Remove the page from your site and return a 404 (Not Found) 401 (Gone), or 301 (Permanently Moved) HTTP status.

  2. Add a noindex robots metatag or x-robots tag (External link). This blocks them from all crawlers that follow the robots exclusion protocol, including Google.com and Bing.com.

  3. Request the page's removal using the Block URLs option in Bing Webaster Tools (External link) and Remove URLs option in Google Webmaster Tools (External link).

  4. Use the Filter URLs option under the Advanced tab. Note that this option should be used only if the other options aren't feasible as it can have an undesired effect on other features such as the display of spelling suggestions and relevance ranking.

Troubleshooting Tip: Are specific web pages missing from your Bing web results? You can tell us about any missing URLs via an RSS feed or manually (the Supplemental Feed and Supplemental URLs options under the Advanced tab, respectively). We'll fetch and index the pages and append them to your web results.
