I submitted a sitemap for my WordPress site to Google Webmaster Tools. Several times. I keep getting the same messages:
"Url blocked by robots.txt." and "Sitemap contains urls which are blocked by robots.txt."
But I have no robots.txt anywhere. It seems my entire site and every link on it is blocked from being crawled by Googlebot. I was using WordPress' Yoast SEO plugin and Cloudflare, but I disabled them and cleared my cache, to no avail. I thought it was Yoast's fault at first.
WordPress' "Search engine visibility" setting has "Discourage search engines from indexing this site" unchecked, like it should. Now I'm wondering if WordPress creates its own virtual robots.txt or something that doesn't show up in the site root.
What gives? Do I need to wait a few days? I never had a robots.txt to begin with!
