search_web_disable_urls array If you add the chosen URLs to the Whitelist, then the excluded web pages will not be scanned for plagiarism.

Hence, when the option “Whitelist URLs” is activated, all similarities found on the URLs will be ignored. True Array
search_web_exclude_urls array If you choose to exclude certain URLs automatically, the tool will still search for plagiarized parts, but it will not influence the general percentage of plagiarism in your report. This feature allows you to add lists of domains and specific web pages that will be checked for plagiarism. The detector will search for coincidences all over the web. However, if plagiarism is revealed on the selected URLs, it will not be included in the final reports. True Array
