Link Mask Generator and it's affect on search indexing (1 post)

    While adding some pages to my robots.txt file created through SEO Ultimate I noticed the Disallow:/go/ for link masking.

    Well I am not trying to mask any links on affiliate sales otherwise I'd just use rel=nofollow which is their biggest concern. I am curious if oogle frowns when they see Disallow: /go/ in robots or if it matters. Would really appreciate the assurance thank you.

    My current robots.txt looks like:

    # Added by SEO Ultimate's Link Mask Generator module
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /go/
    # End Link Mask Generator output

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /privacy/
    Disallow: /terms-conditions/
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/

    Sitemap: http://www.lindseyinvestments.com/sitemap.xml.gz

    I'm specifically referring to this area right here:
    # Added by SEO Ultimate's Link Mask Generator module
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /go/
    # End Link Mask Generator output

    ...but would also appreciate it while I'm here if you could let me know if everything else looks fine on my robots.txt so as not to somehow be blocking my site. Thank you very much in advance.
