I need help regarding robots.txt file.

I need help regarding robots.txt file blocked the important pages of our website like, homepage, blog etc. Even if I used the right robots.txt file code here http://bit.ly/11Z43AC and it shows the home page has no cache date yet since, I added it on Google Webmaster Tools last week.

  • W.E. Jonk: Since we discussed it already I know you are referring to Google&#39;s webcache. I did a site: command and there a number of pages that don&#39;t have a webcache. However the home page is indexed. Why Google doesn&#39;t show the webcache I don&#39;t know.<br /><br />Since you did mention &quot;blog&quot;. This one is in the webcache: ;
  • Kenneth Villegas: I actually did not check the blog page if it has a cache date or not. I only checked the homepage since the homepage is the most important page.
  • W.E. Jonk: People much smarter then me are going to look at this question this Thursday during the HOA. So let me cross-link so that they can look at the whole question at once:<br /><br /><br />
  • Richard Hearne: Here&#39;s the cache of your homepage I can see:<br /><br /><br /><br />If it&#39;s a new site you have to wait a little to see cache. Note that the cached version is not the version Google will always use for search. It&#39;s simply a copy of your page stored for users benefit.<br /><br />On an unrelated note, I would give serious consideration to all the files you&#39;re calling on your pages. Consider something like W3 Total Cache to speed things up and combine all those JS/CSS files.
