I have a client that has 3 domain names. For the sake of this argument I will call them
He used to have a website package with VistaPrint and
www.website1.com was his main business website and website2 and website3 used to redirect to the main website.
However recently I created a new WordPress website for him and now his main domain name is
www.website3.com and website1 and website2 simply redirect to the main website.
But when I go on Google and search for the domain name (any of the three) it does not show me the description of the website and it says: A description for this result is not available because of this site's robots.txt – learn more.
I used to have a robots.txt file but have deleted it since the migration to the client's host however Google seems to have indexed it in the meanwhile. I got in touch with the hosting company and they said that it is a virtual file and that it doesn't physically exist - and that the issue with the description in Google is happening because it has indexed the website while the robots.txt was there.
I want all references to website1 and website2 to vanish from Google and I only want it to index
www.website3.com, which is the main business website - with the correct description of the site
What are my options? I logged into Google Webmaster Tools and it still says that the file is there.
I hope you understand what I want to achieve but feel free to ask for clarification
Any advice will be greatly appreciated as I want to solve this issue ASAP before it starts damaging the client's online presence and reputation
