One of our projects has 6 indexes, one starting at the root page, and the rest starting in its own page node below the root, for example "Products", "Company" and "Support". Each of the 6 pages has search/result boxes using a index returning results from further down the hierarchy, not from siblings. So far - fine.
Now, I'd like to place more search/result boxes further down the hierarchy, also returning results from below. I would want ~/Support/Library/ to return less than ~/Support/, and ~/Support/Library/ProductA/ would return results disjoint from ~/Support/Library/ProductB/.
Can I go on adding indexes (totally 20 or so?), or would even page display slow down considerably before we reach, say, a total of 2000 pages in this web?
I have previously used indexing/search services (MS) that allowed setting search a start node lower in the hierarchy (typically for less frequently used narrowed searches) for some particular search, leaving us with a considerably lower number of indexes.
I would appreciate ideas!
