    Which is better Meta Robot tags or robots.txt?

    Meta Robots tag is much better as it helps in forcing the search engine crawlers not to index and display the hidden pages in your server. The Meta tag option tells bots not to index individual files, whereas Robots.txt can be used to restrict access to entire directories. Both are supported by all crawlers.

    Use robots.txt :

    To stop engines from crawling certain sections of the site

    Robots Meta Tags:

    You can use a special HTML <META tag to tell robots not to index the content of a page, and/or not scan it for links to follow.

    <html>

    <head>

    <title>...</title>

    <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW">

    </head>

    There are two important considerations when using the robots <META> tag:

    robots can ignore your <META> tag. Especially malware robots that scan the web for security vulnerabilities, and email address harvesters used by spammers will pay no attention.
    the NOFOLLOW directive only applies to links on this page. It's entirely likely that a robot might find the same links on some other page without a NOFOLLOW (perhaps on some other site), and so still arrives at your undesired page.

    The Robot Meta tag option is used to tell the bots not to index any individual files, whereas Robots.txt can be used to restrict access to entire directories as well.
