Google Forum Indexing Issue

Pro Admin Google Forum Indexing Issue

Post by Bully@Wiiplaza on November 10th 2014, 1:20 pm

Hello,

for a few months my forum contents have barely or not been picked up by Google even though other search engines are fine.

I have seen two related topics:
http://help.forumotion.com/t125416p60-
http://help.forumotion.com/t136482-

Now I'm wondering if this has been fixed for every forumotion forum now or just for the people who posted? I want all pages of my forum to be indexed by Google once again. It seems like the robots.txt file blocks Google from crawling most forum contents now. When searching the base url in Google, the following message shows up:

Code:
Due to the robots.txt file on this website there is no description available for this result. More information
Since I do not have access to this file, I'm asking you to please fix it so that website information etc. is allowed to be displayed as well as all content pages a.k.a topics to be indexed.

Starting the 20th April my Google Webmaster-Tools state that more and more urls have been blocked by robots. The amount of indexed pages has also dropped significantly since then.

In the following image the blue graph is the amount of urls indexed and the red one the amount of blocked urls:


Note that more topics have been posted since then and not withdrawn from public. This is becoming a significant problemShocked

Nothing has changed yet, will it take some more time for it to take effect or is it not fixed for all forumotion forums? Thank you! Smile
