Hi folks.

Recently I noticed a message on my Google search console saying severe health warning on my property. When I click on check health property it takes me to one of my posts on my site which of course I can't list here for obvious reasons.

I have tried testing the page URL and image URLs using the the robots.txt tester to check for errors as recommended and all seems nice and dandy.

Beyond that everything else gets a bit technical and I cant wrap my head around all the code within the tester. There certain URLs that are allowed and others not. I don't want to muck around with that because I have no idea what I am doing.

This a nasty problem because my traffic is really taking a nosedive. Any ideas on how to tackle this will highly be appreciated.

Thanks guys.

Hey Leonard,

Once you've checked your robot.txt file as Zsolt suggested... and if you find you have not listed that URL there... maybe check to see if you accidentally checkmarked "NOINDEX" "NOFOLLOW" under that post's edit window in the All In On SEO options.

Hope you find this helpful.

Best is to ask site support to correct that for you...

I understand that you've managed to identify the URLs that are blocked by the robots.txt file

You simply need to delete those lines from the robots txt file to allow the access for the crawling bots

Thanks Zsolt. Will try and work on that and see how I go.

Before anything else, create a backup of your original robots txt file!
