How important is robots.txt for SEO
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Hi Warriors,

Just need some suggestions regarding the importance of robots.txt for good SEO. How important is that?

The reason why I am asking is I have been ranking on page 1 and 2 of google for certain long tail keywords and my alexa ranking has improved quite a lot since my website launch, though I do not have any robots.txt for my site.

Hence, I am just wondering how exactly is that file important.
Waiting for some feedback.

Thanks,
Aviroop

Good Question!

The robots.txt file is what you would use to tell the search engines what files to disallow - NOT to index...

Here is a good article explaining what a robots.txt file is and on how to set up your own robots.txt file for your websites.
