Support » Plugin: WP Online Store » Important Search Engine Fix

  • One of the store plugin users (David Johnson) found this very important bug-fix which prevents search engines from crawling the store pages:

    It seems that WPOLS blocks a list of unwanted spiders (/wp-content/plugins/wp-online-store/includes/spiders.txt).

    For some reason GOOGLEBOT was listed as an unwanted spider!

    So I would submit the XML sitemap to goggle to index but ALL product and category pages would result in unreachable Result: Error 500 when fetched by google.

    After chasing for incompatible Plugins and other issues for months the solution is easy.

    Just delete googlebot from the spiders list and all is good.
