Better Check Your Robots.txt says Adsense

Jun 11, 2008 by     4 Comments    Posted under: Adsense, Site Updates

I have taught my visitors before on how to properly implement their Robots.txt and just today AdSense just warned their Publisher to check their Robots.txt file in order not to block some Ads, They have explained that Google BOT is different from AdSense BOT so you better add the following codes in your robots.txt file, if you are using Robots.txt for your blog.

User-agent: Mediapartners-Google*

This only means that you are allowing crawl from Google Media Partners. This will also possibly increase relevant ads for your blog.

BTW I have added mine. You can check my Robots.txt file here don’t forget to check my Adsense Tips before, It still help me a lot to get a relevant ads. And I am sure that michigan SEO Consultants will agree with my findings.

  • @ Fitz,

    Generally I believe your robots.txt is fine, One thing I have seen is your robots.txt file does not restrict your page Page..Since your page ie.. http://fitzvillafuerte.com/page/2 is in excerpt it might also be considered as duplicate pages. Fo my site i have restricted it using as follows :

    Disallow: /page/*/

    Your Category page is also in excerpt mode.. you can also add

    Disallow: /category/*/

    this is to restrict access to your category page.

    Above mentioned suggestion is only applicable if you don’t want your category and “page” page to be indexed but if not your robots.txt is fine
