    Hey Luke,

    I just launched my website yesterday and have been tracking activity. I noticed that my website is ranking last on google search and reads “www.barbaragrizer.com/
    A description for this result is not available because of this site’s robots.txt”

    I already regustered and verified my website with Google and submitted the new version on my robots.txt. But it seems that google is holding on to an older version of my robots.txt.

    How can I solve this?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    The theme doesn’t handle the robots.txt file so I’ll have someone who is more familiar with how this file is generated and/or cached on WordPress.com.

    You need to give Google some time to reindex your site, it can take a few weeks; we can’t control the speed of Google’s search indexing.

    As Luke mentioned, this isn’t theme-related, so if you have general questions like this in the future, feel free to post in the main forum here:
