hi,

i have a site based on wordpress, the domain name is artistscolony.co.il, (and has another domain artists-colony.co.il that redirect to it )

the site is up for more then a month, but it cant be found on google searches, not in hebrew and neither for english search! my question is if something in the site is blocking google or what should be done?

 

thank a lot

racheli

Hi Racheli,

I checked the robots file of your website: http://artistscolony.co.il/robots.txt
It allows all bots to only crawl the subdirectory: artistscolony.co.il/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php - which is possibly causing the problem.

1) Set up the robots File correctly:
User-agent: *
Disallow: /wp-admin/
User-agent: Googlebot
Disallow:
User-agent: AdsBot-Google
Disallow:
User-agent: Googlebot-Image
Disallow:
User-agent: Googlebot-News
Disallow:
User-agent: Googlebot-Video
Disallow:
User-agent: Googlebot-Mobile
Disallow:
User-agent: Mediapartners-Google
Disallow:
User-agent: AdsBot-Google-Mobile-Apps
Disallow:

2) Use the Google Fetch Tool to check if Google can crawl your site: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6066468?rd=2

Hi guys,

You might want to repost this in the GA topic. This topic is for Data Studio.

(Sorry, this is confusing, I know. We're working on getting a dedicated DS forum).

Cheers!

Hey Rick,

Thanks for pointing that out. I'm sorry I don't quite get what you're saying - isn't data studio for data reporting and visualization? Racheli's question was very specific to showing up on Google search, and not about GA or Data Studio. Or did I miss something?

Best,
Arjun

Hi Arjun,

Oh, yes, I see, I misspoke when I suggested this thread is more appropriate for the GA forum. You are correct that it is about Google search and not GA or Data Studio.

Thanks for your thorough and helpful answer!

Cheers!

Rick
