Hoping this will be a quick and easy one.

Is there any way to exclude a custom page type from the search by default. I know you can un-tick the 'Show in search', but is there a way this can be unset by default

Looking at SiteTree.php there is a static property called defaults where the boolean ShowInSearch is set to true.
This is a database default so you may want to use a populateDefaults method.

That did the trick - thanks for that.
