    Robots.txt is a text 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.

    Robots.txt is a document which includes places on your site where you don't want that them visit bots. Robots.txt is a crucial part of SEO.

    The Robots Exclusion Protocol (REP) is a group of web standards that regulate web robot behavior and search engine indexing.

    Web site owners use the /robots.txt file to give instructions about their site to web robots; this is called The Robots Exclusion Protocol. ... The "User-agent: *" means this section applies to all robots. The "Disallow: /" tells the robot that it should not visit any pages on the site.

    The robots exclusion protocol (REP), or robots.txt is a text file webmasters create to instruct robots (typically search engine robots) how to crawl and index pages on their website.
