Hi, I'm consistently receive this error:

Roboted images (135 items)
The image URLs submitted seem to be blocked by robots.txt. Google will not be able to display these images together with the products. Please change your robots.txt file to allow Google to download the image.

.. But its not blocked in robot.txt according to google web master tools.

Any help is appreciated.

Would need to see your robots.txt file if you have one and your .htaccess file as this could also be blocking images from being fetched

Looks fine to me.

I have just searched Google Help and seems you are not alone in his and it could well be a bug in the Google Shopping system

Are your images on the same domain or a subdomain ?

There on the same domain, I have 3 websites on the same server on separate domains all been running open cart 1.5x for 6 months, This error in Google merchant does not go away for all 3 websites, on Google discussion they say its downtime or robots.txt But it's a consistent issue it seems..

Seems a quick email to Google and things start to improve here's what they say.

"I reviewed your account and see that you previously had some crawl issues
which you have fixed and we are able to crawl your products. I also see
that you have recently submitted your data feed. Please wait for few days
for our system to re-crawl your items. Meanwhile, ensure that all your
item pages are up and active all the time and the URL's point directly to
the item."

Strange as I'm sure crawl issues dont last for 3 months.. But at least the "reboted images" percentage is dropping daily, Currently only 29% was 100% so a big improvement.
