Hi Guys and Gals - I was just checking my google WMT ( web master tools ) and discovered heaps of 403 crawl errors - They were all to do with the tags in my blog via yola...I have solved the challenge just thought I would share in case anyone else comes across...good to keep an eye out for seo reasons and deindexed pages

Keep your eye on google webmaster for any crawl errors you will see them show like this

Yola fix - Go into your yola blog

delete the tags field from your page

then reinsert it and wait for the page to load

I then went into the tags setting are selected show all

Test out the blog and make sure all the tags are visable

You may need to refresh a few times and publish a few times for the changes to take effect

Then go through your google webmaster tools and test out the crawl error pages they should be able to be reached now

Hope this helps

Hello Aus Ebay Freight, 

Thanks for this tip - Usually the Google crawl errors don't affect your site SEO too much but this is a great way to get rid of them.
