What is robots txt for WordPress?
However, your blogger site or WordPress site must submit the robots.txt file to your site. But what exactly is this robots.txt file? Search engines such as Google, being, or Yandex use a type of program that collects some important information stored on the Internet. And traveling from one website to another, this system is called bots, crawlers, robots, or spiders.
At the beginning of the Internet, some website owners were annoyed with these crawlers because the crawler visited the website repeatedly and as a result, the server of the website became very slow. As a result, the website did not reach the visitors, and the website’s resources were depleted.
To solve this problem, crawlers create robots.txt files, which allow the website owner to crawl certain files on his site or not allow crawl of certain files.
The robots.txt file is a text format that resides in the root folder of the website. The crawler will search by linking to /robots.txt after a site link, if no robots find the file, they will crawl all the files on that site. Otherwise, if the crawler receives the robots.txt file, it crawls the site’s file with the owner’s permission.
