The robots. txt file, also known as the robots exclusion protocol or standard, is a text file that tells web robots (most often search engines) which pages on your site to crawl. It also tells web robots which pages not to crawl.

Robots.txt is a very important file and it's optimization comes under onpage SEO. The purpose of creating this file is to provide instructions or guidelines to web crawlers about navigating and indexing the files and URLs of a website. In this file you can write directives for different search engine bots. You can define which directory to index and which you don't want indexed. If your site generates a lot of dynamic URLs which are of no SEO value then you can also stop the bots from crawling them. You can also specify the crawl delay to save your hosting bandwidth. Robots.txt optimization plays a major role in onpage SEO for large ecommerce websites.

Robots. txt is the method that helps webmasters instruct search engines to visit specific pages or directories on a website. They have the freedom to allow specific bots to crawl selected pages of a site. Robots. txt includes a sitemap URL which instructs search engines to find the location of your sitemap easily.
