Display campaign, error 403 disapproved ads, Google crawler not able to crawl the site?

Guys,

 

 

I fixed the robots txt file. and for some reason my ads are still being rejected by Google.

 

I followed this article:

https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6368661?hl=en

 

I checked the htcaccess and I don't see any rule that might reject Google's bot from crawling the site.

 

I am using Wordfence which could be the one causing this issue but I am not sure yet.

 

Please let me know your thoughts!

 

Cheers,

Hi David,

 

The Wordfence plugin for WordPress is a known issue for the adbots for AdWords. You will need to disable it, as Moshe has suggested. From there, contact your website hosting provider and make sure they are not blocking any IP addresses by country since many do without telling clients. You have to insist that any location in the world can access your website 24/7.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Is the site open for crawling from all locations and all devices?

Yes, It is but I am having second thoughts about this Wordfence plugin perhaps is blocking the crawlers
