Google cannot access CSS and JS files on your website

by | Aug 3, 2015 | 0 comments

Our FAQ will show you how to fix the problem which has recently started appearing in Google Analytics: “Google cannot access CSS and JS files on your website” appearing in their Google Analytics account since the end of July 2015. This directly coincides with the latest Google Panda update so CSS and JS files are now being indexed by Google too (for reasons we will discover).

In the meantime here’s what you can do to fix this error:

General Fix for All Websites
