    WordPress SEO version:

    For the last month i have been having a problem with the google search results for the http://www.safety-surfaces.com website.

    The following search for the site should show the problem, where some of the pages (mainly the homepage) meta descriptions say

    A description for this result is not available because of this site's robots.txt

    The robots.txt file is set to allow access, as is wordpress itself.

    I have tried resubmitting the sitemap and robots.txt file to google, fetching as google in webmaster tools (which fails) all to no avail.

    As the plugin wordpress seo generates the description im wondering if this is possible an issue with the plugin (just trying to discount everything).

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I checked your robots.txt and its looks fine. (everything allowed)
    You also don't have any noindex/nofollow tags - at least not on your HP.

    Following that, I performed a site search on Google ( "site:http://www.safety-surfaces.com/") and it showed me description for all of the indexed pages.

    I think that the issue was resolved.

    If interested in learning more about robots.txt and Googlebot in general, you may find this helpful.

    Hi Both,
    Thanks for your replies.

    There is one result on the following search which is still showing the problem and thats safety-surfaces.com/

    I have added a 301 redirect pointing safety-surfaces.com to http://www.safety-surfaces.com but so far that doesnt seem to have done the job.
