Hi,
I've found, in GWT, a lot of pages have been blocked by GoogleBot, because there're some resources blocked by robots.txt. this mean Googlebot doesn't render the page. Maybe, it could be penalyzing me?

This not happen so far, but I read a post from John Muller (https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JohnMueller/posts/LT4fU7kFB8W [plus.google.com]) where he explains the improvement about crawling.

I'm checking organic traffic from this date, and i'm feeling that i'm losing traffic.

Is there anyone who has been the same? Or have the same effects?

Thanks

Hi xulufcb, I was wondering about this too. Have you thought of unblocking resources and checking if you are seeing any difference?

Hi aakk9999,

I've just unblocked resources from robots.txt, so I can't say you anything about this. I hope in few days I'll be able to see some changes or not

Great - please do report back here with the results. You may need a few weeks rather than just few days though.
