    Today! I have received a mail in GWT. i.e. "Googlebot cannot access CSS and JS files" CAN ANY BODY TELL? IS GOOGLE GOING TO FOCUS CSS & JS. While Recently I have read a blog where it?s clearly mentioned that GOOGLE DOES NOT Read JS FILE

    You can block files with robots.txt, just not the css/js files.

    Tbh it's not even that weird, as Google is all about user experience and they want to look/see how your site is served to your visitors.

    I don't think it's an update, but this is just my opinion.

    It's not an update, Google just started to give out warnings in WMT for it now, that's all.
