Adding a calendar to Google Calendars may give you this error: "Could not fetch the url because robots.txt prevents us from crawling the url.". This means your server administrator is disallowing search engines from indexing your servers. A server administrator will need to modify your  robots.txt  to allow Google to index Team Calendars.  In your robots.txt file, add the following line:

User-agent: *
Allow: /rest/calendar-services/1.0/calendar/export/subcalendar/private/*
