Why robots.txt is important for our sites:


Having a robots.txt file present on the website helps the search engine to access the sitemap of the website. This makes it easy for search engine bots to know what to rank in the website, and what not to do. When search engine bots come to a website or blog, they crawl the content of the website according to the instruction given in the robots.txt file.

At the same time, if the search engine bots will not find the robots.txt file in the website, then the search engine bots will get confused about which content of the website they have to crawl. In this case the search engine bots start crawling all the contents of the website or blog.

In such a situation, there are some private data on our website which we do not want to index. But because the robots.txt file is not present on the website, search engine bots start crawl and index all the data of our site. Therefore we must definitely add robots.txt file on our website. All these are very important for website and blog.
