I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: YES / NO

Description (including timeline of any changes made):

Hi All,
I am stumped with googelbot not being allowed to index my site and sitemap. Here is my robots.txt http://tiny.cc/mcaz2
Does anyone have any clue why this is so?
I am getting this message in my webmaster tools section: Allowed by line 2: Disallow:
Detected as a directory; specific files may have different restrictions
I am using wordpress and my privacy settings have been changed so search engines can access my website
Thanks!!

Hi

The message may be a little confusing but there's no problem with your robots.txt in terms of being indexed. You might however want to read the posts on wordpress from Webado in this thread:


Your site is currently indexed:


If your site isn't showing well in the index, you might try using content which isn't available on other sites.
