Excluding phrases from the index


Recommended Posts

We are doing searches for a client that have terms like Reserv* and United. We are getting a lot of noise hits from phrases that we would just like to remove from the index. Example "All Rights Reserved" or "Postmate reserves the right .." that do not pertain to the case. Trying to use NOT would exclude the item entirely even if it is a hit with reserve somewhere else in the email.

Reserv* NOT "All rights Reserve" was 1 idea. I do not think it is possible to do a proximity search (I read about the future update to phrases with proximity) but to exclude maybe. Like the picture  below should get most of the documents with a phrase but does it exclude the whole item if another term is a hit? We know there are exclusive hits on just that phrase but the case involves reserving room/seats not about some random email that has a disclosure at the bottom about "All rights Reserved" with other variations of that phrase. 

United States is another phrase I do not think they want a hit on.

If the "All rights Reserve" phrase is recognized/separated as a paragraph, you could use the paragraph exclusion on that phrase. That is kind of works like an ignore. E.g. there are no hits returned on this particular phrase if they are in a document. E.g.

It works but the paragraphs are somewhat different by a few words but a lot have that same phrase. I removed the email in the paragraph. They are both from postmates but for maybe 3 or 4 messages each but we have over 33k of them. Also, were is the list stored of the paragraphs that you exclude?
