Support » Plugin: Autoptimize » Should caches be disallowed with a robots.text?

  • Resolved Hazlo


    Hello Frank
    My question is about the relationship between caches and Google indexation.
    I have a cache folder on my server with both Lite cache and Autoptimize caches inside.
    And I wonder if I should disallow this folder with the robots.text or not.
    If i don’t, is there a duplicate content risk?
    And if I do… will my posts and pages still be indexed properly?
    It’s quite important to be sure with this point I guess!
    Thanks in advance for your advice, and also, of course, for your very good plugin.

    Can’t speak with absolute certainty for Lite Cache, but it certainly is no problem as far as Autoptimize’s is concerned, as the cache folder only holds css/ js and no content (HTML). As such, the info in there is of no use to crawlers in general and Google in particular.

    Thanks for answering Frank. I get it better now.
