[resolved] Google plus button can't be rendered by google (2 posts)

    Hello, i was debugging my site on Google webmaster tools with the option "fetch as Google and render", i found that googlebot cannot render the Google plus button because the resource is blocked by robots.txt.

    This may sound silly to some but it's important Googlebot sees the site exactly as we see it. And blocked resources js/css doesn't help with that.

    So what i ask is if maybe an update could be run so the Google plus button can be rendered by Googlebot just like all the other buttons that give no errors.

    I hope this idea gets considered.

    Greetings.

    Hi Nico,
    Google crafted the Google Plus button behavior like this intentionally. The plugin only uses the official code provided by Google so we can't change this behavior.
