    Robots. txt is a text (not html) file you put on your site to tell search robots which pages you would like them not to visit. Robots. txt is by no means mandatory for search engines but generally search engines obey what they are asked not to do. It is important to clarify that robots.

    We can say that Robots.txt is a file where we can allow or disallow to search engine crawler to crawl or not crawl the website's pages.

    Robots.txt is a file that tells search engine spiders to not crawl certain pages or sections of a website. Most major search engines (including Google, Bing and Yahoo) recognize and honor Robots.txt requests.

    Robots.txt is a short text file that's placed on your website to tell search engine crawlers how they should crawl your site. For example it tells them what not to download, collect, or index on a page. This helps you control the flow of traffic to and from those pages, which in turn helps increase the crawl rate of your pages.

    Robots.txt is a text file with instructions for search engine crawlers. It defines which areas of a website crawlers are allowed to search.

    Robots.txt protocol allows you to guide spiders on your website so they only crawl the pages you want them to crawl. Although this might seem contrary to the goals of SEO, preventing the spiders from exploring some of your content can actually be beneficial.

    The robots.txt file is a text file that defines which parts of a domain can be crawled by a Webcrawler, and which parts can't be. In addition, the robots.txt file can include a link to the XML-sitemap. With robots.txt, individual files in a directory, complete directories, subdirectories or entire domains can be excluded from crawling. The robots-txt data is stored in the root of the domain. It is the first document that is accessed by a bot when it visits a website. The bots of the biggest search engines such as Google and Bing follow the instructions.

    A Robots.txt file is a text file used by webmasters to instruct web crawlers which pages on their website should not be crawled or indexed.

    This can be helpful if, for example, you have a large website with a lot of pages that you don't want search engines to index because they're not relevant to your site's content. You can create a Robots.txt file and indicate which pages you want to be excluded.
