google disallow

    hello everyone,
    I am back. After plunging I have taken some time off for other pursuits.  I have been exploring webmaster tools a bit to see what the problem is with my traffic flow.  I see that many of my hubs have a disallow mediapartners under crawl errors.  I see that I am not alone in this.  When I went to search Hubpages to see if there is already a thread on this I typed in google disallow.  In that search some hubs came up and under them it listed the disallow  google mediapartners phrase I had seen under webmaster tools instead of the hub summary. ( weird eh?)
    In any case I need some help figuring this out.  The google disallow is surely part of the reason for low traffic?? yes??  I have listening to webmaster videos and searching on the web to see how to resolve this but I haven't come across anything ( that I understand anyway)  Can anyone tell me more about google disallow, if it is a problem, and how it can be fixed?

    Thanks in advance for any help...

      How do you find out about disallow on your hub? Look at the html?

        you have to look at the google webmaster site verify your hubs and look at crawler errors...

          My webmaster isn't showing errors but the robot .txt shows disallow all through it. And I've disappeared from google completely. I've been searching all day but nothing.

    It is part of the robot index file and I'm not sure why it would be there. It tells the Google Search engine not to index those pages and I am lost as to why it would be added to the robot text file across the site.

    Maybe someone from Team Hub Pages can explain this. Maybe it is a technical issue they can fix as we do not have access to the robot index text file.

    I hope someone from team Hub Pages will be by to give us a answer.

      I think google mediapartners has something to do with smart phones and not delivering ads which don't fit on the small screens - but this is just a guess after doing some quick googling.

    I would think it's probably from another site that linked to you and they got slapped by 'G' sad give it more time, you may recover again smile we just never know these days tongue sorry I'm not much help. Maybe once you figure it out, you can write a Hub on the experience wink

      No it is from our own sites here at Hub Pages in the robot index file which is in the meta tags at the top of our sites.

      Not sure why it would be there but we all keep waiting for an answer. Hopefully soon please.

    Some one from Team Hub Pages needs to answer us about this. I emailed them but no answer yet.

    As it so happens, there is already a FAQ entry about this very issue:
