    Hi BHW i need some help :rolleyes:
    I have been using shared hosting for like 1 year without a problem my sites ranked fine ect..
    Now i get errors from 1 particular site from the shared hosting saying google cant reach my site.

    I can access my site easily by just going t it in my browser.

    I'm scared Google will remove my site from serps because it cant reach it :(
    Any idea?

    P.S
    When i try to fetch the site in webmaster tools i get error: robots.txt unreachable. But it works fine in my browser...

    I know it might seem obvious but you're using wordpress check to see if you have it set to private by accident.. I had the same problem before with blogs i had set up for indexing and was getting that result when i viewed it in the serps. Worth checking anyway :)

    if you don't have a robots.txt in your main folder, you will get such error message, but it doesn't affect anything on your site as 90% of the sites don't have robots.txt and they do just fine

    It's like that, I have a lot of sites, when google try to reach one of them and can't they send a message, the next day they try it again and reach it but they don't delete the message.
    I have some messages "google cant reach site xyz" which are 3 months old.
    go to webmaster tools->crawl errors then you will see that they could reach it the next day, when it says 0 errors

    mate just add a robots.txt file to your root domain ,
    the file should look like :
    User-agent: *
    Disallow:



    just "robot.txt allow google " or something like that and you should find tons of solutions

    Now i have been removed from the SERPS because Google cant crawl my site for 1 week.

    Its not my host (i switched hosts to test)

    Can't Fetch my site as Google i get "unreachable page" error.
    Using rex swains http viewer(http://www.rexswain.com/httpview.html) with useragent "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)" and don't get any errors...
    It's also not my site's fault (i removed all files and uploaded only index.html with hello in it)

    maybe banned ?:(
