robots.txt and about.me integration

  1. Hi,

    I am unable to add my blog to my about.me page; when contacted the about.me support, they suggested that my hosted blog robots.txt is blocking the integration due to following entry:
    --
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /
    --

    I suspect this is due to the privacy setting "Ask search engines not to index this site." for my blog, is this causing the issue? If it is, then how could it be possible to keep the privacy and add the blog to about.me profile - there must be a way to maintain privacy but add the website? e.g., my other social networks (facebook, etc) are also kept away from search engines but i am able to add them to my profile.

    Thanks,

    The blog I need help with is hermeneutical.wordpress.com.

  2. It probably is. You will have to set your site to full public (allow search engines).

    If about.me honors and checks robots.txt files, then the only way would be to open it up completely. Facebook is an entirely different thing and not structured like wordpress.com. What can be done there and here are different.
