What is a robots.txt file?
A robots.txt file is located within your home directory and is classified as a short text file. This file is first checked by search engine spiders before they scan your overall site. The robots.txt file lets the spiders know which pages/files/directories are allowed to be checked and which ones aren’t allowed to be checked.

Benefits of using a robots.txt file?
Have control over what shows up on search engine results pages (SERPs).
- A well-crafted robots.txt file can easily prevent search engine spiders from scanning content that could negatively impact your brand authority.
Maintain link equity in guest posts and editorial links.
- Link-building is only effective if the link equity transfers from the publisher’s site to your site. Link equity is the value that a publisher site provides another through backlinks that increase rankings on SERPs.
As an added bonus our robots.txt generator includes a block against many unwanted spiders, or SPAM-bots, which generally crawl your website to collect the email addresses which are stored on those pages.
