    Few weeks ago installed and configured BPS security on my site and it worked just fine. But few days ago the plugin started to block all the search engines from crawling my site. after removing the plugin everything worked just fine. Please provide a solution for this.

    BPS does not contain any htaccess code that would or could block search engines. Did you add any additional custom htaccess code to your root htaccess file that is capable of doing something like that?

    site:ait-pro.com - shows around 4,100 indexed pages by Google.

    I didnt add any custom code in my .htaccess file thats why it was hard for me to found out that this plugin was the one blocking the search engines from crawling my site. I have been using this plugin on many sites but i never had any problem with it until now.

    Well BPS does not block Search Engines from crawling a website because it does not contain htaccess code that can do that. So in order to figure out exactly what the issue/problem is please explain exactly why you think BPS was blocking Search Engines from crawling your site. What did you see that made you think BPS was causing the problem? Thanks.

    Well I was receiving 403 errors from webmaster tools which later after doing some troubleshooting something i didnt find any problem so i decided to uninstall bps security after that the problem was solved and I dont use any other security plugins more than BPS.

    Well not really sure what happened then. I have never seen a 403 error that was related to BPS in my Google Webmaster Tools account so not really sure what to tell ya. ;)

    I thin it was just a temporary error because this error occurred only to one of my sites am using BPS Security. Others are doing fine.

    Well if you want to see if any problems are occuring again on the site then you can use the Google Webmaster Tools >>> Health >>> Fetch as Google tool. This will tell you if Google is running into any problems getting to your website's posts or pages. Let me know what happens. Thanks.

    You can thank WP's Otto "OttoDestruct" for that. He taught me a valuable lesson in how to stay focused on maintaining your professionalism at all times. If your goal is always to fix a problem then it is hard for your ego to take control and cause you to rant and rave. LOL

    Yeah man and thanks man. The lesson came with some shame and some pain, but I have found that a little pain ensures that you remember those life lessons. LOL
