Google Search Console says robots.txt is blocking 213 pages on my site

I've checked robots.txt syntax and don't see anything.  Capture.PNG

This is very distressing since it seems to be a recurring issue with Shopify robots.txt files and the site owner is not allowed to make changes to the robots.txt file.  Even more so as the home page and the product pages are among those being blocked. Please fix.  URL is https://bestketonetest.com/

You can see your robots.txt file here: https://bestketonetest.com/robots.txt

Can you give some examples of blocked URLs on your store?

Hey @Mircea_Piturca 

I am having the same issue here: https://wanuna.store/robots.txt

This is the URL that is blocked and has been excluded (a blog post):  https://wanuna.store/blogs/journal/2021-trending-now-fair-trade-home-decor-products

Any suggestion here?

Thanks!

Gabriela

We disabled a currency convertor plugin and that seemed to do the trick

How were you able to track down what plugin was?

My programmer found it. I think it was because it was the most recent
plugin that he had installed.

Hello!

Just a quick update about the robot.txt file that was referenced in this post. As of today, June 21st, 2021, we have launched the ability to edit the robot.txt file to give merchants more control over the information that is crawled by search engines. You can learn more about how to edit your robot.txt file through our community post here

If you have any questions about the new feature, please do not hesitate to create a new post under our "Techincal QA" board.
