    Please I need Gurus in the house to help me!

    I got this message from Google about my blog. I even
    noticed that I’m not getting local traffic again. I asked for advice
    Here is the message and I don’t know how to go about solving it: Googlebot can’t access your site

    Over the last 24 hours, Googlebot encountered 1 errors while
    attempting to connect to your site. Your site’s overall connection
    failure rate is 100.0%.

    You can see more details about these errors in Webmaster Tools.

    Recommended action

    Verify that the web service software for your site is installed and
    running properly.
    Verify that your firewall or server are not blocking googlebot’s
    access to your site.
    Verify that all scripts that run on your site have proper permissions to run.
    Verify that your site has proper permissions to access the pages of your site.
    Using Webmaster Tools, find a day with a high error rate and examine
    the logs for your web server for that day. Look for errors in the logs
    for that day and fix the causes of those errors.
    Your site may be overloaded. Talk with your hosting provider about
    either reconfiguring your web server or allocating more resources to
    your web server.
    If your site redirects to another hostname, another possible
    explanation is that a URL on your site is redirecting to a hostname
    that has one or more of the problems listed above.

    After you think you’ve fixed the problem, use Fetch as Google to
    verify that Googlebot can properly access your site.

    Please what you can do to help me on this.

    I have received the same info, first time ever. It is also on the www. version of the site, which has been around for many years.
    I wonder if there is something with WP 3.5 / or Twenty Twelve causing this as odd as that may be as that is the only thing different on this site of mine.
    If you find out anything please post back and i will do the same.



    @dragonsjaw: Please post your own topic.
