(151 warnings) sitemap read by google: Url blocked by robots.txt (2 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.4.2
    WordPress SEO version:

    I have this:
    Standard Robots.txt file - http://balancenatural.com/robots.txt
    Three sitemaps generated - http://balancenatural.com/sitemap_index.xml

    I expected the plugin to do this:
    Integrate with google so all pages and posts were considered without major warnings.

    Instead it did this:
    Page-Sitemap: 117 warnings
    Post-Sitemap: 34warnings
    All the warnings are "Url blocked by robots.txt. - Sitemap contains urls which are blocked by robots.txt."

    I've reviewed all possible settings I can think of but don't understand the problem. I haven't had this issue with the plugin on any other sites.

    Any suggestions on where to check or test for a solution?
