Blogs in People Search
Writing about web page http://search.warwick.ac.uk/people
As some of you may have noticed, we are currently trialling a new People Search application as part of the Warwick website search at http://search.warwick.ac.uk/people - these results also appear on general searches on the Warwick website.
As part of the results for this, we display the user's Warwick Blog or e-Portfolio if they have one, and so if you have a Warwick Blog (or an e-portfolio), you'll find that your blog appears in search results, which may or may not be something you'd like to happen. For example, a search for Mat Mannion reveals a Warwick Blog:
If you don't want your blog to appear in search results, you can turn off "Show in blog directory" from your blog's Settings page. Click here for more detailed instructions - it may take up to a week for the directory to update and for your blog to be removed from results.
If the wrong blog appears for your name, you can leave a comment on this entry or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - this usually happens because the wrong blog is marked as your "personal" blog; we can change which blog is marked as your personal blog for you.
