How do i get "excerpt include" content searchable

I have several pages that has excerpted content from pages from another space, and this space status can be "current" or "archived" it doesn't matter. I've tried rebuilding content index as well to be sure.

Im not able to get any search results from words that are inside at page with macro excerpt include. 

This happens with instantsearch pluging, and without the plugin.

How can i solve this?

Hi Atle,

The search engine indexes can't index the content of a macro, if that macro content is generated at runtime.

The Excerpt Include macro pulls in data from [whatever Excerpt macro you've told it to] when the page is rendered (i.e. opened by a user).  So there is no way for the content of that macro to be indexed. 

If the page that contains the Excerpt macro is in a current space (i.e. it's NOT in an archived space) then the content of the Excerpt macro should be indexed because it's static data.
