Viewed times -1 [UPDATE] With the help of Kentico, I have determined the cause of the problem to be that the site could not be accessed within the web server itself. Once I corrected that, the page crawler could index the content. The Smart Search page crawler indexing for our production site is not working.

Depending on these settings, the Index writer creates representations of objects in the index files. When an object included in the index is created, removed or has one of its fields modified, the system automatically schedules an Indexing task, which updates the corresponding index document. The Index searcher searches through the index file and returns relevant results.

Specifically, there are four pieces of data you control for each result: the title, the summary or content, an image and a date. Each document or page within a Kentico site is of a specific type. These types are naturally called Page Types.
