Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » Google says URL restricted by robots.txt

  • Why does google webmaster tools keep saying URLS are restricted by my robots.txt?
    I do not have a robots.txt file in the home directory.
    I have unclicked discourage search engines.
    I use this google xml sitemaps plugin and ask that the home page be included in the virtual robots.txt
    When I go my site’s robots.txt it shows:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/

    Sitemap: http://ravenwoodtennis.com/sitemap.xml.gz

    This doesn’t seem to be blocking the home page, etc.

    PLUGIN RELATED: should I be changing the sitemap name to the sitemap_index.xml in the webmaster tools? If so, it’s generating a 404 error. 🙁
