Google Whining About Cs Cart's Robots.txt

I just an email from Google stating that my robots.txt file is hurting my rankings.

[quote]Googlebot cannot access your JavaScript and/or CSS files because of restrictions in your robots.txt file. These files help Google understand that your website works properly so blocking access to these assets can result in suboptimal rankings.[/quote]

They want me to unblock /js/ and /var/ so then can read the css. This goes against CS Cart's recommendation as well as a lot of the SEO folks on this forum. Can someone identify the dangers of allowing var and js open to robots?


Hmm, my robots.txt only blocks app/ and store_closed.html

What is your concern on unblocking those directories in robots.txt? All those files are accessible via http.

I don't have any concerns really. I was just following prevoius recommendations, you know, like a lemming. I never saw a problem with it.
