You’re probably here because you forgot to disable the ‘Discourage Search Engines’ option in the settings.

I know exactly how you feel.

When you’re developing a website, it’s a good idea to enable the option ‘Discourage Search Engines’ via ‘Settings > Reading’. But disabling it afterwards is pretty easy to forget. No worries! After activating this easy and lightweight plugin, you’ll see a dashboard notification whenever the ‘Discourage Search Engines’ is enabled. If the setting is disabled, you’ll see nothing at all.

Just perfect! Especially for when you’re a developer.
