Comment on WordPress SEO Tutorial by Erik.

WordPress SEO Hi Dave, I know this is kind of an old comment, but just wanted to just confirm that you are saying it is okay to not disallow wp-includes in robots.txt?

I know a lot of people have had issues with getting warnings from Google Search Console (formerly Webmaster Tools) about blocked resources, and it seems that blocking wp-includes is the culprit in some cases.

I know that some suggest blocking wp-includes, but allowing certain sections of it to be crawled.

But I don’t really understand why some think it is necessary to disallow this file, perhaps it is just an old practice that is now outdated?

Any thoughts you might have are appreciated.
