I am relatively new to WordPress, but I want to create a blog and try to optimize it for SEO. So I tested my site on OnPage.org and it tells me that my site in not indexable due to robots.txt settings: "Uhoh - this page will not get into Search Engines, because it is set to "noindex".

I use the Yoast SEO plugin.
