Examples that trigger this Hint

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

The Hint would trigger for this URL if it included a <link> tag that referenced an AMP page:

<link rel="amphtml" href="https://example.com/page-a/amp/">

where this AMP page is disallowed by a robots.txt rule, for example:

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.
