Gary came up with information as there were some complaints about the Robots.txt tester tool having a bug and how Google reads a site’s robots.txt file.
He also said that they are currently trying to integrate the tester with the parser’s production version. He also acknowledged the tool’s possible problem and assured that people would know it for sure once the tool is updated with the parser’s production version.
Gary’s tweet about the tool
we’ll look, but it’s likely a tool error. we’re currently in the process(*) of integrating the tester with the production version of the parser which should fix this, if indeed it is a tool error.
