Google Webmaster Tools Troubleshooting

It looks like OPP is blocking my site with 'robots.txt'. What's going on?

The things on your website that are blocked by our robots.txt file are actually blocked on purpose, and are specifically in accordance with Google's guidelines! :) They are parts of your website, like 'behind-the-scenes code', that you do not want to have come up when your site is Googled.

Though they sometimes do, Google should not reporting this blocking as an “error,” but it seems to be a flaw in their syntax. We have researched this extensively, as we understand how important search engine optimization is to our customers. The robots.txt file for your website can only improve the indexing of your site.
