We are getting a lot of products with errors

We are getting a lot of products with errors but the links and image work

Product pages cannot be crawled because of robots.txt restriction
     100%     5,891

However the product images display on the linked page okay

http://www.uksafetysigns.co.uk/order-online-google.asp?product_id=VMS9A/BL&q=find

The robots.txt seams to be okay as well

User-agent: *

Sitemap: http://www.uksafetysigns.co.uk/uksafetysigns.co.uk_sitemap.xml

Disallow: /order/admin/

The link to the image is also okay

http://www.uksafetysigns.co.uk/safety_sign_labels/VMS9AR.jpg

Can some please explain what may be wrong on this product as it is coming up with no picture and two dissapprovals

Afternoon George,

 

Nice to see another user from my neck of the wood on the forum.

 

Have you attempted to crawl the affected pages within your Google Webmaster Tools?

 

It is best to have these two lines of code within your robots.txt file.

 

User-agent: Googlebot
Disallow:

User-agent: Googlebot-image
Disallow:

 

Do you have any blockage on retrieval of URL's outwith the UK?

 

Disapproval also does not always relate to the problems within the dashboard, so once you have updated the robots.txt file, if this does not resolve the issue, then you may wish to contact Google directly here and ask the reasoning behind the ruling.

Dear Tom

Thank you were are based in Glasgow the city that is miles better ! Lol

I will try bunging the code back into the robots.txt

we do not have any blockage in the robots.txt

The images do have a wee bit of white space around them maybe that is a factor and some of them may be a bit small.

Hi George

 

Glasgow is my home town Smiley Happy

 

Although its best to have really good quality images, its not likely to be that thats causing them to not be able to crawl.

 

Anyway, let me know how you get on and continue to enjoy the glorious glasgow weather
