Support » Plugin: Autoptimize » Googlebot access

  • Resolved AAVasilev


    I test my site with Autoptimize on “Varvy SEO tool” and I always receive this message

    "Googlebot access. 
    Resources blocked by robots.txt
    2 CSS or javascript files are blocked. 
    Blocked page resources:
    (e.x. ...autoptimize/autoptimize_cd929868e30f2239afae8602bc28c1bc.js ...autoptimize/autoptimize_6f6875cc7f901ddd0602450f927ffb22.css)."

    For comparing I tested other plug-in, there everything works (Googlebot in a green zone)

    Thank You

    Autoptimize’s files are cached in wp-content/cache/autoptimize and does not restrict access to that. You can see this is the case by testing against e.g. or

    It is possible however that higher up (i.e. in wp-content or wp-content/cache you have an .htaccess (from another plugin) which does block access.

    hope this helps,



    You prompted the good idea, changed the robots.txt parameters and now everything works correctly
    Thank You
