Windows 10: Search Problems on all browsers

    Search Problems on all browsers

    My Daughter has encountered a problem - whenever she wishes to visit a site (she uses google / opera / bing) she meets with the following message - "We would like to show you a description here but the site won't allow us."?

    I said I would put this on the W10 forum and ask for any pointers to overcome this issue. Any help would be much appreciated.
    I hope this has been placed in the right thread section - apologies if this is not the case.
    Thank you all in advance

    This is down to the specific website being searched for. Google's text is more informative than Bing's...

    A description for this result is not available because of this site's robots.txt
    Learn more
    ...and their 'Learn more' link even more so.

    A robots.txt file is a file at the root of your site that indicates those parts of your site you donít want accessed by search engine crawlers.

    Bump !
    would appreciate some further comments (of a more simplified nature)
    To clarify, my daughter is not referring to her own website (she does not have one) - this is her attempt to visit any normal site using bing / opera/google when the following message appears
    "We would like to show you a description here but the site won't allow us."?
    Thanks in advance.

    "We would like to show you a description here but the site won't allow us."
    The webmasters of those sites don't want any search engines crawling their sites. They have used Robots.txt to block them. You can't explain it any simpler than that.

    I appreciate what you are saying Bree, and thanks for your time etc.

    The mystery to me is why suddenly is this message being received? The sites that she visits are everyday ones.
    I will try to get a small selection of visited sites - try them for my self on my several Pc's, and let the forum know the outcome.
