We are getting flooded with messages from Google Webmasters about blocked recourses. The block recourses tab in the Webmasters Console shows no blocked files but obviously the modules/plugins are all blocked in the robots file.

We have solutions below!

Message from Google

Google systems have recently detected an issue with your homepage that affects how well our algorithms render and index your content. Specifically, Googlebot cannot access your JavaScript and/or CSS files because of restrictions in your robots.txt file. These files help Google understand that your website works properly so blocking access to these assets can result in suboptimal rankings.

Here’s how to fix this issue:

  • Identify blocked resources
     Use the “Fetch as Google” feature to identify those resources that robots.txt directives are blocking.
  • Update your robots.txt file
     Remove the restrictions on your site’s CSS and JavaScript files from your robots.txt directives and test the changes with the Robots.txt tester. Then update your revised robots.txt file on your site and submit it to Search Console.
  • We have shared the correct robots.txt files below!
