Thank you for responding,goodroi. 6 are wordpress.com which I am doing quite well with. in fact Saturday a post I just wrote was selected as the featured post which I discovered when I did a web search. It is the four or actually three out of the four blogger blogs that are being excluded from searches by robots.txt that basicly state :user agent* disallow:/searches. My wordpress show up well in searches as far as I can tell. There might be one or two that are not indexed well but that is one of the reasons that I opened so many blogs/ to get my message "Out". I am disabled and living on $600./month so everything I DO, IS "ON A Budget".
My issue has been this: everything that I have read says to upload to the "root folder or domain root folder" but have not been explained in a way That I can understand, how to upload it! I tried Filezilla Client but was unable to get a stable connection on my dial-up ISP, or so it seems.It stated that there was either a router or firewall problem but the firewall is enabled and I even turned it off to be sure. I used Google to produce multiple robots.txt files: user agent* Allow:/ which it said would allow all spiders or bots to access my blogs but again, how exactly do I upload them to the root directory. I found the robots.text file online but it is apparently write protected which kept me from altering it so I need to replace or over write them. Sorry for the long explanation but I wanted to cover all of the bases.
