Hi Friends,

Robots. txt is a text file webmasters create to instruct web robots (typically search engine robots) how to crawl pages on their website.

A robots.txt file is a set of instructions for bots. This file is included in the source files of most websites. Robots.txt files are mostly intended for managing the activities of good bots like web crawlers, since bad bots aren't likely to follow the instructions.

Robots. txt is a text file webmasters create to instruct web robots (typically search engine robots) on how to crawl pages on their website. A robot. txt file tells search engine crawlers which pages or files the crawler can or can't request from your site. This is used mainly to avoid overloading your site with requests; it is not a mechanism for keeping a web page out of Google.
