We use scripts to create static .htm files to show content on our site. Mainly in an effort to reduce database calls.
For example, a script that builds a file every 5 minutes that contains a list of our latest forum threads. It would be intensive to request this information from the database on every page load (as the list is in a site-wide sidebar), so we build a static file on the server that we request instead.
The issue is, the file has been found by Google Webmaster Tools, and it gets marked as either thin content or that it's missing H1 tags etc. So our solution was to add the file to our robots.txt file so Google Webmaster Tools would ignore it. However, now the file is coming up under 'blocked resources'.
What is best practice in this case?
Should the file remain blocked? Or do I unblock it, and have it as thin content?
