    Is it common to block archive.org?
    I dont see any benefits for letting them caching my site?

    Nope. No negative effect. If you are using it you can continue. But if you are not then its totally OK.
    thanks

    Thanks for the input.
    So in general, what are the pros and cons of blocking archive.org?
    Or is it just something personal?
