Robots.txt file

robots.txt

Important tiny file...

The robots.txt file is placed in your www or public_html directory. So the correct location where to put this file is in www.example.com/robots.txt. This file indicates how “deep” the spiders can crawl into your website.

It’s possible to keep a spider out of a directory that’s called “customers” or a directory like “images”. Obviously it’s a request, not a guarantee. And if you don’t want the file /secret1960 to be found by anyone, maybe it’s better not to put it on the internet anyway, and especially not in your robots.txt file. If you want to protect your information you use a password security like .htaccess or a login-script.

Key Takeaway

  • This file can make or break your website if used wrong.
  • Add the robots.txt tag in the public_html or www directory.
