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's webcache. I did a site: command and there a number of pages that don't have a webcache. However the home page is indexed. Why Google doesn't show the webcache I don't know.

    Since you did mention "blog". This one is in the webcache: ;http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:68Hg2QMfOykJ:www.playquest.com.au/blog/+&cd=7&hl=en&ct=clnk
  • 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:

  • Richard Hearne: Here's the cache of your homepage I can see:


    If it'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's simply a copy of your page stored for users benefit.

    On an unrelated note, I would give serious consideration to all the files you're calling on your pages. Consider something like W3 Total Cache to speed things up and combine all those JS/CSS files.
