You can't edit the robots.txt file.
I'm curious though - what would you change to add extra value?

Well it seems Shopify deliberatly undermining clients' effort to have trheir sites proplry indexed @ Goolge, and stubornly refuse to provide a solution.

Why would Shopify ban indexing of i.e. /collections & therefore products , /blogs ? or images ? 

This is returned from Google crawler (15 pages indexed, 198 exluded from indexing) :

Warning: 15 Indexed, though blocked by robots.txt

Crawling anomalies
Warning: Google chose different canonical than user

Hi there @Dresscheap!

 

Don here from Shopify. :)

 

You can learn how to find and submit your sitemap here on our help site

 

It would not be necessary to edit your robots.txt file in order to do so.

 

 

All the best!

Hi @Don,

 

I have Google crawling some old pages that are no longer supposed to exist, and still indexing them. How can I tell google not to crawl them if I can't edit the robots.txt file? They are already not submitted in the sitemap...

Hi there @jacktyler3!

 

Don from Shopify once again. :)

 

If you'd like to add pages to your robots.txt file so that they are not crawled you can do so by following the steps outlined here on our help site.

 

Note that it is not possible to remove pages from this file, only to add them.

 

All the best!

 

 

Regards,

Don
