Google Search Appliance (GSA) Metadata Limitations

Google Search Appliance (GSA) Metadata Limitations

The GSA is an expensive and very proprietary search box created by Google.

It works great at search, and seems to be insanely powerful, except for one little problem:

Meta data limits

Maximum number of meta tags that can be returned with getfields: 64.

Maximum number of bytes per meta tag returned, including the name of the meta tag and its contents: 320 bytes.

Maximum number of bytes of meta data returned per search result: 4K bytes.

Oh man….this is going to be a long, loooooong day 🙁
