Indexed, though blocked by robots.txt https://markandscribe.com/

We are experiencing the same problem as many other users in here. When testing the robot.txt Google should be allowed to crawl, but is still giving us the "URL blocked by robot.txt" error inside Search Console.

 

We also had a developer do a custom auto-geo currency selector. Is that really what is causing the problem?? The crawling issues came little by little in the time after implementation, cf. screen dump bellow. Please HELP us Shopify! :-)

Check the currency converter, as it was interfering with the robots txt.

In particular we tried to auto select currency on geo location which caused
issues.

It's almost certainly an app or app conflict. Mine was with a currency
switcher and was thankfully fixed.

Has a concrete fix been found for this issue?

Nothing I have tried has worked for me.

We fixed this by submitting the redirect currency form via /localization instead of /cart/update.

Sorry to be a pain, but can you explain exactly how to do that?

Our auto-geo currency and language selector works be means of this snippet. We changed the redirect link from "cart/update" to "/localization" because robot.txt will block anything with "cart" (which makes sense). I hope that helped a little
