[resolved] [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Robots.txt content and sitempap (2 posts)

    If the content of the robots.txt is the one below, is Google still able to index my sitemap considering that the WP SEO plugin creates a folder inside wp-content which also contains a sitemap?

    I'm asking because Google didn't indexed my website since I launched it 3-4 days ago and the sitemap status shows pending even though I've resubmitted today.

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /cgi-bin/
    Disallow: /wp-content/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/
    Disallow: /wp-admin/

    Yes it'll still be able to because as far as Google is concerned your sitemap is in /sitemap.xml
