Hello out there!

Today I’m gonna show you how to tell nutch to display your page’s meta description in the search results.

In order to do so, we need to write a plugin that extends 2 different extension points. Additionally the OpenSearchServlet needs to be extended in a way that your description info gets shown. (I perform searches via the OpenSearchServlet, extending the default search.jsp should be similarly to that I guess).

At first the HTMLParser needs to be extended to get the description content out of the meta tags. Then we need to extend the IndexingFilter to add a description field to the index. „Nutch — meta description in search results“ weiterlesen
