Severe health issue

On webmaster tools, my site is getting a "severe health warning" which is preventing me from using adWords. It seems the robot text is blocking the mp3 player swf. Yet another thread in this forum says I can't change the robot text? So I'll either have to remove content or change to a host that does let me edit the robot.txt?

Here's what google webmaster says:

Severe health issues are found on your site. - Check site health

Show URLs: Not found ‎(3)‎ Restricted by robots.txt ‎(1)‎
Download this table

Hey there

Sorry about this. In the next release of the sitebuilder we'll change the robots.txt file from this...

User-agent: *
Sitemap: http://www.matthewjamesharris.com/sit...
Disallow: /classes/
Disallow: /definitions/
Disallow: /templates/

to this...

User-agent: *
Sitemap: http://www.matthewjamesharris.com/sit...
Disallow: /definitions/
Disallow: /templates/

That'll let google get at the .swf file and hopefully fix the issue.

You will need to republish. The fix should goes live some time tomorrow.

Cheers

Has this fix gone up yet? 4 days later, I've republished and submitted new site map, but the error is still there!

Hi matt,

May I ask if your site has been crawled again by the robot? The warnings won't change until this has been crawled even though Google may have sent you a response in Webmasters advising you that the sitemap has been read etc.
