Search Indexing

I'm using perch search on a site scheduled for deployment in 2-3 weeks, and I'm curious as to how long it takes to index the content for search results to appear?

All of the site's content is perch-ified, and I'm using the example search function and a slightly modified template; it's been three days and still no results are showing for phrases directly copied from the page text.

I'm on the latest 2.5.4 version. Maybe it's a MAMP issue (I've still not had time to play with Vagrant), because it is not on an actual server?

There's no delay, it's indexed as soon as it's edited.

It's a MAMP issue, as usual. Works fine on the staging server.

Related question: is there an option to not include duplicate entries in the search results? As it is, if a keyword appears more than once in a single page, that page will appear more than once in the results.

It's searching content items, not pages - so no, there's not currently.

Okay, thanks!
