Yoast SEO
Url blocked by robots.txt in root folder (1 post)

    WordPress version: 3.5.1
    WordPress SEO version:

    I have added my sitemap to Google Webmasters and it accepts it perfectly. However, it states that I have 1508 Warnings.

    Url blocked by robots.txt.
    Sitemap contains urls which are blocked by robots.txt.
    Sitemap: http://www.athomemagazine.co.uk/page-sitemap.xml
    Value: http://www.athomemagazine.co.uk/images/backissues/10_jc_feb-02.jpg

    I believe that it is because the image folder that I have added (which I had to do when migrating from a different platform) is in the root folder. Is there a way to add just this folder to the sitemap to clear up these warnings?
