We've had a google search function in place on our site for a number of years and are very happy with it.

We would like to create a new search that only returns results from a handful of specific pages. 

A new search engine has been created to accomplish that, listing the specific pages. However when testing it, results are returned from the entire site. 

Same results using "Include all pages ..." or "Include just this specific age ..."

Is what I'm trying to accomplish feasible?

thanks,
David

apologies for the delayed response ... recovering from surgery

The Search Engine ID is:
003483147726709254371:okrdqpcl0qk

The pages included in the search are:

A test page has been created at:

When I enter water as the search term, all 4 of the pages listed above are correctly returned, but not the specific results found on each page. For example, https://www.gp.org/ecological_sustainability contains 104 instances of the word water. But the results on https://www.gp.org/search_platform only show the first example for each of the 4 pages.

What I'm hoping to achieve is a page of results that displays a link to each instance of the term searched for

or
returns zero results.

Not sure if what I'm trying to achieve is possible.

Hi David,

When you perform search with a term, search engine looks for that term in your indexed documents and serves all the documents which contains the query term matching with your sites added to "Sites to search" configuration and serve results.

The searched results will only display the list of documents matching with the query term as per the sites added to "Sites to search" configuration. Once you click on a particular results, it takes you to that document content.

Request to please review the document below to understand how search works:

When you perform search with the term 'water', all your 4 expected documents  are being served in the results and that is the expected behaviour of the search engine.

Thanks
