    Hi Dwija,

    Thank you for using our service.

    If you disable "Content Blocks" from the search index, this will only effects your shared content blocks. The main content area of my site will be searchable, because you are going to search in Static HTML in pages (the whole HTML of all pages).

    If you want to index the content of the content blocks that are dropped on a page and you have entered some html the only option is to select Static HTML in pages type of content which will be indexed, because the content blocks created on the pages are generic content widgets.

    1. Go to the backend of your project.
    2. Select Administration -> Search and Indexes.
    3. Open your search index and select Static HTML in pages in the Scope section.

    When you define Content Blockes scope to be indexed the search will index content blocks that are created in the Content Blocks section and that are shared. This is the default behavior of Sitefinity.

    Please inform me if you have further questions. I will be glad to answer you.
