When I logged into Adsense today, it gave me an Analytics diagnostic warning for hubpages, saying that they could not crawl because of a Robots.txt error.
Anyone else getting this?
Cute photo! Do a search in the forums, there's been lots of threads about this. Sorry I can't be of more help.
this question pops up a lot.
i think it is just some strange glitch in certain servers sometimes and as long as you have relevant ads appearing on your hubs, it shouldn't be a problem.
i had one hub showing up and i thought 'why is it blocking this hub, there's nothing inappropriate there' then i noticed a couple of the amazon ads links were 'bad', as the products were no longer offered, so i fixed it and it no longer appears in my diagnostics.
i am not sure if that is what the problem was, or if there is even a problem at all - this is just what i observed.
Wait a minute I need help. How are you getting Analytics to work here anyway where did you put the html code? I couldn't figure out where hub pages would except it I use it on my other three blogs but not hubs please help!!
stick analytics code taht you normally put in footer in little box instead ua -XXXXXXXX
as for robot.txt block, pretty much meaningless ..most of thetime its google translator versions of your page...if you see it for a week, than look for a problem, otherwise nothings going on
I just read a google article about the robot.txt thing and FYI it probably won't be an issue moving forward, it was a way that sites told the google robot where it could and couldn't go within the site. It was meant as a way to keep from causing duplicate content problems and the bot finding multiple pages of the same text within the site. more detailed but that is a basic overview of wha I read from Google, as for the analytics issue if youhaven't figured it out the code goes in thesame areas where other affiliate code is and I have a hub about the useful features in analytics.

Google AdSense Site Diagnostics reports that a Robots.txt file is blocking their crawler from accessing one of my hubs. Can anyone suggest how I can resolve this issue?
