Google doesn't show snippets of Meta

Hiya, are you guys aware that Google seems to have issues indexing the site?

For the past week at least, I’ve seen multiple “No information is available for this page.” messages, with a non-useful Learn Why link.

Just thought I’d let you know, you might not Google yourself that often :slight_smile:

Hey @Bas, thanks for the report, we are correcting the problem!

We fixed it now in site setting. Thank you @Bas

Hmm so @zogstrip changed the robots.txt here and forgot to change it back :exclamation: why did we even do that?


(Régis Hanol) #5

It was to test a bug when allow_index_in_robots_txt is disabled and crawler_user_agents is set to “*”.
I reverted crawler_user_agents but forgot to revert allow_index_in_robots_txt :expressionless:

OK so how long did we remove all of meta from google for? :flushed:


(Régis Hanol) #7

They were gone for 27 days…

Well thank goodness @Bas reported this then :heavy_heart_exclamation:


(Bas van Leeuwen) #9

You’re welcome; wish I had reported it earlier :slight_smile:
