Googlebot Can’t Access CSS and JS File, Says Google

Google is now sending webmasters warnings via search console. The search engine is notifying them that Googlebot can’t access CSS and JS files embedded on their websites. Google is sending messages quite faster and several hundreds of webmasters have already received these messages. The message reads:

Google systems have recently detected an issue with your homepage that affects how well our algorithms render and index your content. Specifically, Googlebot cannot access your JavaScript and/or CSS files because of restrictions in your robots.txt file. These files help Google understand that your website works properly so blocking access to these assets can result in suboptimal rankings.

You needn’t to be panicked as this isn’t a penalty notification but a warning. Google is just trying to say that if Google can’t see your website properly, it may hurt website rankings. In case you receive this message, talk your developer and discuss how to overcome the situation. You may alternatively use the fetch and render tool to diagnose the issue deeply.
