How to Configure Crawl for Anonymous SharePoint 2010 Site

February 25 2011 70 comments

Are You getting errors like described in Mikes blog? Well atleast I did, and here is one way to fix it.

First of all, you need to have a web application with only anonymous access enabled. You can have it extended to another zone, with windows authentication , to make it available for editing. Here is one guide how to make site anonymous. To disable view for form pages, guide for that in here.

When you are configuring your search and you want to use the anonymous site for crawling, you might get following error in you craw log and not getting anything crawled.

Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has “Full Read” permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled.

The key here is that you need to crawl the site as Web site, not as SharePoint site. Basically it makes sense, you are using the site as anonymous, so what you can’t see should not be crawled.

[edit: You can also use SharePoint site as crawl type and and use the same crawls rule as described here, but if the crawl does not get all content you want, you can't add more start URLs because each start url needs to be a web application or site collection. And without the crawl rule you will be getting the same error as mentioned above.]

1. Go to your Search Service Application, select Content Sources from the navigation on the left and create a new content source by clinking the link New Content Source.

2. Set the Content Source Type to Web site and Type the URLs from which the search system should start crawling. Some times it only crawled only the root web and did not follow the links in top navigation. If this happens, add more start URLs, like the URLs found in top navigation of your site collection.

3. Click Crawl Rules from the left navigation and create crawl rule.
