Robot.txt

    Why is one of my hub URL showing up as blocked due to robots.txt in Adsense report? Where do I find the robots.txt for a particular hub?

      robots.txt would be at the root of the server directory.

      If you would submit the information from your Adsense report to team@hubpages.com they could probably answer how this could occur.

      Put it into Edit and look in the right hand column - click on setting and have a look.. it's a mini C-panel..
      If you can't fix it from there.. then it will need to be done from the maxi C-panel...
      Good Luck.

      - I thought that you could attack that problem via the settings on this c-panel... Sorry.. obviously not..

      Then It Must be approached via the main C-panel (HQ) - where you may have to file this as a Bug Report.

      Test the links on the URL manually.. where else have you posted this URL?  Where have you tested it from... or is the link completely broken?

      Can another party test this url link?


      I have had a similar problem... But I unpublished the hub and then when  republished it again it was ok! - That's where I was thinking... smile

    I cannot find any reference to robot.txt there either.

    I'm sure you would not be able to access HubPage's robot.txt file. 

    You could view it, but that would be the most you could do.


    Here's another forum post from 15 months ago - http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/32255

    Same topic. 

    It is mentioned that you may have a meta tag somewhere in the Hub and it needs to be removed.

      thanks for the link. The discussion was really informative. The best options seems to waits for week. The blocked URL is as following.

      http:/ / webcache. googleusercontent. com/ search? q= cache:XFZOuzyciGUJ:hubpages. com/ hub/ Problems-of-learning-English-as-a-foreign-or-second-language+difficulties+in+second+language+acquisition&cd= 6&hl= en&ct= clnk&gl= uk&source= www. google. co. uk

      googleusercontent. com is owned by Google and webmasters have weird experience with webcache. googleusercontent. com as far as I have read on adsense forum.
