  1. hey there,

    i just checked my webmaster tools - and sudently a warning appeared by the robots.txt:

    Sitemap: http://letstalkknowledge.net/sitemap.xml
    Sitemap: http://letstalkknowledge.net/news-sitemap.xml

    User-agent: IRLbot
    Crawl-delay: 3600

    What to do? - how to change?

    The blog I need help with is letstalkknowledge.net.

  2. Hi there,

    I tagged this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond. To subscribe look in the sidebar of this thread, find the subscribe to topics link and click it.

    Does Google Webmaster Tools give any details about what the critical issue is with your site's robots.txt file? Please post theme here. Or will you provide a screenshot for Staff please? I'll tag this thread for their attention. You can use http://snag.gy/ to share screenshots and link to them here.

  3. Oops! Sorry just clicked the link above and what I see is normal. All of those ought to be blocked by robots.txt. You do not have an issue. Everything is as it should be.

  4. I see... I'm editing all post (since yesterday), but is it changeable? Or will it be like this forever?..

  5. There is no robot.txt issue on your blog.

    However, there are Terms of Service issues because you posted advertising and no blogger initiated advertising is allowed on WordPress.com hosted blogs.

  6. @TT doesn't anyone ever read the warnings? Maybe the warnings are a waste of time and the blog should just be flagged for suspension and skip the extra work giving a warning?
