  3. Apply changes. 
  4. Click the Force re-indexation button to start re-indexation.

    That’s it. After the indexation is complete, you can go to your storefront and make sure that products with the specified tags don’t appear in the search results.

    What’s more, by default, the Smart search & filter app doesn’t index products that have the SEARCHANISE_IGNORE tag. Therefore, if you add this tag to some products in your Shopify admin, such products won’t appear in the search results.
