Are You Using Flywheel to Host Your WordPress Site? It Might Be Blocking Google!

@ET-DC@eyJkeW5hbWljIjp0cnVlLCJjb250ZW50IjoicG9zdF90aXRsZSIsInNldHRpbmdzIjp7ImJlZm9yZSI6IjxoMT4iLCJhZnRlciI6IjwvaDE+In19@

The other week a PointA website developer noticed that client sites hosted by Flywheel were blocking Google and Bing page-indexing spiders/crawlers. A deeper look showed the default Flywheel robots.txts was blocking all crawlers that had a query string in it, such as ”/?=.

It looks like this:

User-agent: *
Allow: /?v
Disallow: /calendar/action
Disallow: /events/action*
Disallow: /*?
Crawl-delay: 3
