Disallowed JS

JavaScript files which are disallowed in robots.txt

Priority: Critical

Impact: Negative

What issues it may cause

If the resources are disallowed in the robots.txt, the search engines may be unable to render the pages correctly.

How do you fix it

The resources should be reviewed using tools such as the Search Console Live URL Test or Mobile-Friendly Test to determine if the resources are required. If so, the robots.txt should be updated to allow the URLs to be fetched.

What is the positive impact

Search engines will be able to render the pages correctly and process all the content and meta data so the pages can be indexed as expected.

getCrawl(id: $crawlId) {
