    Hi Guys,
    I think I have something setup as wrong on my site. Primary robots.txt
    I went
    http://www.seositecheckup.com/

    and it showed that the robots.txt file is noindex, no follow
    so I guess that explain it
    but when I go to my site/robots.txt
    it says
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    is that what its supposed to say?

    Sorry if I'm all over the place just try to learn all this stuff.

    I know User-agent: *
    means all spider bots, so not G specific or Yah00 specific, every single one of them.

    And I'm pretty sure the Disallow:/ means everything, so everything is disallowed.

    If you want, send me your domain name and fix this issue and ill try to get you indexed quick if you want. Hit me up in PM.

    P.s. if you are running wordpress it will do this to your robot.txt if you accidentally set the blog to private... so make sure you go to your privacy settings and check its privacy settings.
