I have some questions about using the noindex option in Funnelback (https://docs.funnelback.com/15.16/develop/key-programs-and-scripts/padre.html#Controlling%20indexable%20content)
I am looking at ways to speed up the crawling and processing of re-indexing our site because currently it is quite slow and it can take several days for an incremental update to happen.
1) If I were to use the noindex option to exclude the primary navigation, header and footer content, would that help in speeding up the crawling process as there is "technically" less for it to crawl?
2) For people who do exclude those primary menu links, how do you go about indexing those pages from the primary navigation? Do you create a "dummy" orphan page with links to those pages and get Funnelback to crawl that or do you add those individual urls to the list of "included" things to crawl?
