[resolved] Googlebot unable to access site after Repost installation (3 posts)

    After installing Repost, I received an email from Google that the Googlebot could not access my site. It said, "Over the last 24 hours, Googlebot encountered 278 errors while attempting to retrieve DNS information for your site. The overall error rate for DNS queries for your site is 4.9%."

    I deactivated the plugin and the Googlebot was then able to access my site.

    Any solution for this?

    We're pretty sure it's just a coincidence. Repost doesn't do anything to DNS at all.

    DNS is the net equivalent of the phone book, it's how google and browsers know which computer hosts http://www.whatever.com. The error you are seeing is google saying "hey you're not in the phone book". Since the repost plugin runs on your server and the error you are seeing is google saying it can't even find your server to access it the two are unrelated.
