Googlebot-Images and robots.txt Reply to topic


I found that none the picture was indexed in Google Images. It's a problem for a site with pictures because pictures is another way for getting traffic.

I found two lines in the file robots.txt

User-agent: Googlebot-Image
Disallow: /


I have delete this two lines and now, pictures has started to be indexed.

I think that a CMS as Dragonfly, with a main section focused in images (coppermine gallery) must reconsiderate this politicy.

The site with that problem was www.google-earth.es

Aforo - Google Earth - WebNaranja - DFcms.es

Server specs (Server OS / Apache / MySQL / PHP / DragonflyCMS):
Centos 5/Apache 2.2.3/MySQL:5.0.45/PHP:5.2.10 /9.2
