Can't seem to rectify these crawling issues

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

Just need some help troubleshooting. These URL's keep appearing in SEMRush as being blocked from crawling. I've tried several fixes but can't for the life of me work it out.

Hoping someone can see something I can't! Links below.

Cheers, 

Mikayla

Hi Mikayla - those URLs are blocked from crawling deliberately by Squarespace. You can see the rules that block them in the robots.txt file generated by Squarespace for your site: https://steffantp.com.au/robots.txt

It looks like most of these are just preventing Google's crawlers from wasting time on the archive pages associated with authors and collection items.

Unless you really want those pages to be crawled (and then potentially indexed) by Google then you can safely ignore these issues in Semrush 🙂

Hope that helps!
