    I cannot access my website from my browser or from a link, but can via WordPress.com site. Message tells me (Cloudflare) server may be down or my site is overcrowded?
    Message frm googlebot
    http://www.dcwhyte.com/: Googlebot can’t access your site

    Over the last 24 hours, Googlebot encountered 1 errors while attempting to access your robots.txt. To ensure that we didn’t crawl any pages listed in that file, we postponed our crawl. Your site’s overall robots.txt error rate is 33.3%.
    Can anyone advise?

    The blog I need help with is dcwhyte.com.

    You’re not the first person who’s said there’s a problem with Cloudflare. I’ll flag this for staff attention.

    http://dcwhyte.com/ seems to be working fine now.

    Are you still having trouble?

    All looks good now, thanks. I had sent out a ‘one-to-many’ email newsletter (approx 600) – would this have caused overload? Sounds improbable

    That is possible, we don’t have any control over Cloudflare, but it does sound like possibly a caching glitch.

    Not familiar with cache or caching glitches – sorry.

    One correspondent wrote – “I had to linked (?) to a cached page because the live site didn’t appear to be running – do you want to take a look and check it out?”

    How do I fix a caching glitch?

    What I meant is the issue was probably with Cloudflare. If everything is fine now, I wouldn’t worry about it.
