Basically, the robots.txt file is a text file containing instructions to the search engine spiders about which sections and pages to crawl or specifically NOT to crawl.
1. Create a text file and call it robots.txt
2. Type the following in the first line
3. Then for each folder that you DON'T want to be spidered/crawled type lines like...
4. For specific pages or files, type this...
disallow: /filename.html or disallow: /filename.php etc.
User-agent: * alerts ALL robots
Disallow: /*? disallows search by bots of all dynamically created pages
Disallow: /foldername*/ disallows all folders within folder name
Disallow: /*.php$ disallows search by bots of all pages with php ext. Swap for html to html$
Disallow: /foldername disallows search by bots specified folders
Disallow: /foldername/file.html disallows search by bots of specific pages
Use the example below to Allow robots to ALL Sections and Pages of your website
Use this example to Restrict Access to the Listed Folders & Files and to permit ALL other areas
Upload the completed robots.txt file to the root directory of your website.
You only need ONE. Do not add any other robot.txt files to any other directories, they'll just be ignored.
By creating a robots.txt file, the respectable search engine spiders will obey the instructions. There are some spiders out there that will ignore it altogether.
