    Hello,

    The plugin does support indexing custom post types. Please give it a try and let us know what you think!

    Hey Quin,

    Love this feature, but I was wondering if we could choose which Custom Post types get indexed? Is there a way to block some? I have a lot post types that are for data around the site but shouldn't show up in search independently.

    Hello,

    This actually isn't the case with the WordPress plugin. The robots directives only apply to search engines created using our crawler solution. There is a good solution for the plugin as well. You can use a filter to restrict the post types that are allowed to be searched. Here is an example that only allows posts: https://gist.github.com/qhoxie/47e39f8db6b6fa2b7d7c

    Is it possible to add checkboxes in the search to narrow it by custom post types?
