Weebly Robots.txt File Disallowed the Uploads Folder From Being Crawled by search Engines

This is the case with all weebly websites,

 

Anything in the uploads folder has been restricted from being crawled by search engines

 

Uploads folder contains all the necessary files which we uploads in weebly such as images videos or any other document file,

 

That is a really serious issue causing big harm for all the weebly websites

We didn't used to have that added there - I'll see if I can find out why the uploads directory is being added. I will say though that there are people that will be glad that the directory is blocked, because they don't want files uploaded to their site indexed. Thanks for your patience!

In this situation there should be option on weebly to Allow or Disallow that upload folder,

I agree, although I'm not sure what prompted the change and what the intent is by doing it.
