search engine giant frequently updates its algorithm to keep returning
high quality results to its users’ search queries. Panda 4.0 update was
aimed at trashing out low quality content.
Google Inc employee John Mueller responded to a query by a webmaster via the Google Webmaster Help. Here's his response:
This is also confirmed by Maile ohye at the SMX Advanced few weeks back, stating that: Google recommends websites to make sure that Googlebot can access all embedded resources that contribute to the site’s visible content or Its layout. Now what we need to be mindful of is how Google see our website's?
How Google See Website?
Google introduced a new feature called "fetch and render" on the fetch as Google page in its Webmaster Tools. This feature was introduced just a week after the search engine giant rolled out its Panda 4.0 update. You can now see how your site appears to Google with the help of this new feature, and by following:
- Login to your Google Webmaster Tools account.
- Choose the site you want to unblock
- Go to "Crawl" > "Fetch as Google"
- Click on "Fetch and Render" and click on "/" in the latest entry below.
Since Google already stated that Google wants you to make sure that Googlebot can access all embedded resources that contribute to your site's layout and visible content. Now you can make all your embedded resources visible to search engine by following the below steps:
- Edit your Robots.txt file
- Include the below code in your Robots.txt file.
# Allow all files ending with these extensions
- Save your changes and you are done.
Note: Google blog publishers (Blogger) have nothing to worry about. This fix is applicable only to WordPress and other platforms.
