I have over 400 links listed in Google Console as 'blocked' - in the smartphone tab - and the help section says that certain pages might not be listed correctly due to a problem with the robot.txt file.

I have noticed that all of the links are social media related - for example:

[Domain Private]

Why are these blocks exclusive to smartphone? Have I done something wrong?

Vey grateful of any help.

Anything that says cgi-bin, amongst other things, are pages created on the fly, so you don't want them to be crawled. There are several other posts in the forums lately, all panicking about pages that SHOULD NOT be crawled. SBI! has your back.
