I got this error message from google when I tried to submit the index_sitemap.xml file in google webmaster tools:
“Sitemap contains urls which are blocked by robots.txt.”
my robots file is at http://techluminati.com/robots.txt
previously, I did not have a robots.txt file, yet wordpress seemed to have one which I could not find anywhere on my website.
so I created a new robots.txt file and uploaded it to the server.
I have also checked the option in wordpress seo to generate sitemaps automatically, and I believe its doing a great job..although for some reason the sitemaps are not being accepted by google.
Can anybody please help?
WordPress version: 3.3.2
WordPress SEO version: 1.1.9
