High This Hint is very important, and definitely warrants attention. Issue This Hint represents an error or problem that needs to be fixed.

AMP Page URL is disallowed

This means that the URL in question is an AMP Page URL, which is disallowed in robots.txt.

Why is this important?

If an AMP Page URL is disallowed in robots.txt, search engines will be unable to crawl the page and access the content, which means it will not get indexed properly or be included in search results.

What does the Hint check?

This Hint will trigger for any AMP page URL that is disallowed in robots.txt.

Examples that trigger this Hint

Consider the AMP URL: https://example.com/page-a/amp/

The Hint would trigger for this URL if it is disallowed by a robots.txt rule, for example:

Robots Rule

How do you resolve this issue?

AMP URLs need to be accessible in order to be indexed. In this case, the page is inaccessible to search engines as the 'disallow' rule stops them from accessing the page.

To rectify, you would need to update the robots.txt file and remove/amend any disallow rules that affect the AMP URL.
