What the “Googlebot Cannot Access CSS and JS Files” Webmaster Tools Message Means
This past week, many of our Adventure Web clients received emails from Google informing them that Googlebot is currently unable to access some of their website files. The email included some instructions on how to allow access, but many who received the email are skeptical about what to do next.
Why an Email Now?
Google made the change last year to render a full page as a web user would see it. Back in October, they then changed their guidelines to no longer block these files. This resulted in Google not being able to successfully view a full site, which could then lead to what Google has put as “suboptimal rankings.”
What to do Next?
Still have Questions?
The staff at Adventure Web Interactive will be following any updates should they arise with the Googlebot emails and are encouraging our clients to continue to keep these files blocked. We are also working to update the robots.txt files in order to accommodate the new Google changes while still maintaining the necessary security for your site.
