    Meta Robot tags are better as it helps in forcing the search engine crawlers not to index and display hidden pages. It also ensures that the link equity is not being lost, with the use of the ‘follow’ command.

    Robot.txt is used to instruct search engine crawlers about the entire site, where the robot tag is used to instruct about a particular page of the website.
    These instructions include what page to index or not to index in search engines.

    Robots.txt is a file which is included in our website database to instruct the search engine robots that which page should be crawled and which are not.

    Using a meta robots tag also ensures that your link equity is not being lost, with the use of the 'follow' command. Robots.txt files are best for disallowing a whole section of a site, such as a category whereas a meta tag is more efficient at disallowing single files and pages.

    Robots.txt is more beneficial. It is a text file that lists webpages which contain instructions for search engines robots. The file lists webpages that are allowed and disallowed from search engine crawling.
