In my adsense report it says that one of my hubs is blocked because there is a Robots.txt file on it.
The hub in question was written for a Hubmob topic. Its current score is 79. I obtained the information it contained from a number of sources and wrote it from scratch using my own words. It includes one Amazon capsule featuring two products, one video capsule, three picture capsule using public domain images and one links capsule containing a single link to a museum web site.
The hub has not been flagged in any way. Can someone explain what has happened?
This question comes up regularly. Here's a recent answer explaining.
Thank you, Maddie. So it seems I shouldn't worry
BTW, I did do a search for robots.txt on both forums and site to see if there was something already written about this issue, but didn't get any hits.
