[Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps] robots.txt

  • I’ve added this plugin but it seems to be blocking crawlers without me asking it to. I want search engines to be able to crawl my site, why has the plugin disallowed them all?

    I recently noticed all my Google AdSense ads had vanished and my visitor numbers have plummeted. I contacted Google who told me my robot.txt file was blocking them from crawling my site. It had:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    Why has the plugin done this and how do I stop it? Why has it acted in this way without notification or asking permission? Why are there no settings to disable it?
