Problem: When I do a search for my clients company name, Musheno Woodworking Company on Google or Bing I get this:
A description for this result is not available because of this site's robots.txt – learn more.
We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us.
Background: Before launch, I developed my clients WordPress site on a subdomain of their website. I used a plugin to make it private requiring login on the subdomain (just during dev) and I turned OFF search engine visibility in the WordPress Settings > Reading. I believe THIS last part is the root of the problem and what is still causing my issue.
Things I've Already Tried to Solve This:
1. In WP General Settings: enabled search engine visibility
2. Rewritten/uploaded to root a new robots.txt:
3. In Google Webmaster tools, I verified its my domain and did the following:
--URL submitted to be indexed
--(all pages) indexed
--I fetched as Google
I'm seeing no change in the search result--it still points to the robots.txt as the problem. I've tried different variations of Step 2 & 3 about 8 separate times in the last 3 days. Surely its been re-crawled by now? Anyone have any thoughts on how I can resolve this?
