Support » Fixing WordPress » robots.txt issues

  • My site is excluded from Google’s search by keywords due to a robots.txt issue. I have re-done my robots file- checked it and still I get this notice under the site link: Dark Horse Media
    A description for this result is not available because of this site’s robots.txt

    I’ve removed the file- re-done it and still I have this message. What am I doing wrong? I’m using a custom theme- but it was working before we did some site improvements.

    Currently I have this robots.txt file in the root of my server- but it wasn’t working before I uploaded this anyway. Any help appreciated!
