I had been dealing with a Direct Advertiser referred by a fellow Blogger for days already, haggling and negotiating until he finally told me that due to a no PR site, my blog was disapproved for some paid posts. And he was referring to Wandering Mom which has PR1. I, of course insisted that my blog has its PR and he must have mistaken it.

He got back to me saying that I must have blocked all robots from index crawling on my site using the following code robots.txt file. Frankly, I was clueless. I don’t know what he was talking about so then he told me to check my hosting support.

That’s how Mommy Ruby of Pinay Mommy Online got in the picture. I sent her the whole email trail and asked her if she knows what this guy is talking about. As expected, she came to the rescue and found the culprit!

The guy was right! Without me knowing it, I have blocked all the search engines for my travel blog. Thanks to Mommy Ruby! She has also updated whatever are needed to be updated and installed Google XML Sitemap. For whatever purpose it may serve my blog, all I know is that my blog is in safe hands with the full support of Mommy Ruby! Thanks to you! And of course to the DA who told me about the robot thing. I wouldn’t know if not for him!

Next time, I’d be very careful with what I click heehee! One more thing, I have updated all my blog/s and its plugins as per the advise of Mommy Ruby.
