Squarespace Blocking Google Search/Display Ads

Recommended Posts


Looking for someone to help. I have been helping with a website and they have a Google Adwords account setup.

Most of their ads are being disallowed as Google is indicating an error with the destination. 

On further review it appears when looking at the sites robots.txt file that Squarespace isn't actually allowing Google Bots to crawl it (see the screenshot).

Squarespace support has told me this might be due to any custom code on the site. We reviewed the code and saw nothing that would be affecting this. Squarespace also indicated that no one has permission to edit this robots.txt file so we can't change it to allow.

I checked multiple other Squarespace sites i have helped set up and all of them have the same disallowed code on the robots.txt file.

Has anyone else had trouble running google search/display ads back to their site? Anything specific I should be looking for or at this point should we just migrate to a new platform?

We have tried to get the issue resolved with Google directly. They also indicated it wasn't working due to the robots.txt file.
