Installed sitemap plugin and google stopped indexing (1 post)

    Since I've installed the Google XML Sitemaps plugin, google has stopped indexing my site and it has vanished from all google searches.

    I get an error message from google that robots.txt is unreachable, therefore it doesn't crawl the site. The last crawl was April 3, but even results from before April 3 are no longer on google.

    My site is just over a year old, and prior to this it had an acceptable google ranking.

    I'm not sure if I should just delete the robots.txt file? I've deactivated the plugin for now.

    Any advice?
