    hi all

    I have just launched a site that I have been building in wordpress and have been onto google webmaster tools to see how it is performing and got the following message Googlebot is blocked from http://www.emotionalfirstaid.co.uk/

    Text of http://www.emotionalfirstaid.co.uk/robots.txt

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    is this a problem or is it something that the wordpress installation adds the the site?

    Thanks
    for your time

    i have just looked at my source online and it is as follows

    <meta name='robots' content='noindex,nofollow' />

    I have looked at the header file but it is not visible there?

    how do I change this to allow my site to be indexed?

    Thanks

    I think I have found a setting in privacy settings called Site Visibility it was set to

    I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors
    I have changed it to
    I would like my site to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google, Bing, Technorati) and archivers

    is this the correct thing to do?
