When a search engine spider visits your website, it reads the Robots.txt file, which contains a special set of rules. As a result, this Robots.txt file contains numerous restrictions, such as which directories you are permitted to scan and index, and which directories you are not allowed to scan and index, and similar rules apply to files, webpages, and other items that you do not want to display in public search results. As a result, the Robots.txt file is important for securing your website from hackers since it allows you to specify the address of your admin panel and other sensitive directories that you do not want to display in search engines.
So, how do you write rules in this robots.txt file? Well, it's not easy for beginners, and it takes time to write robots.txt files. That’s why Useotools.com provides the free tool Robots.txt Creator, which allows you to generate a robots.txt file in a matter of seconds with only a few clicks. As a result, the tool has a variety of settings, which are outlined below.
Default - All Robots are: There are two choices for this option: "Allowed" and "Refused." Set it to "Allowed" if you want all search engine robots to visit and scan your website, but the internet isn't that reliable. There are some nasty bots out there, so set it to "Refused" if you want to blacklist specific robots or spiders. Crawl-Delay: It is an important rule. It allows spiders to delay scanning for a particular amount of time. For example, if you have a large site with a large sitemap, you don't want to overload the server by allowing the spider to explore your site at the same time. As a result, you should set Crawl Delay so that spiders crawl your website slowly and do not overload the server. Sitemap: Sitemap is another important rule. If your website is large, you must keep a sitemap so that search engine spiders know what to explore. It's very similar to a city map for new visitors. If your website has a sitemap, you may enter it here. Search Robots: Here is a list of search engine robots/spiders that you can either accept or reject. Restricted Directories: You can use this section to specify restricted directory names and paths that you do not want search engines to crawl and look inside.
