websites description not showing on google

hello, I have been working on my websites seo but when I search it on google it is only on page 7 and instead of the websites description it says 'A description for this result is not available because of this site's robots.txt'

Can anybody advise why this is. thanks

That's a really vague and non-specific question.

You didn't provide any of the important details ... No domain, no search terms, no mentions on page SEO that you've performed.

I'd recommend you start with the beginner's guide to SEO

Also I'd recommend you check out these 2 blog posts about asking questions on forums this one on getting help when stuck and this one on getting answers
