Re: what is robotxt.file ?

Robots.txt is a text (not html) file you put on your site to tell search robots which pages you would like them not to visit. Robots.txt is by no means mandatory for search engines but generally search engines obey what they are asked not to do. It is important to clarify that robots.txt is not a way from preventing search engines from crawling your site (i.e. it is not a firewall, or a kind of password protection) and the fact that you put a robots.txt file is something like putting a note “Please, do not enter” on an unlocked door – e.g. you cannot prevent thieves from coming in but the good guys will not open to door and enter. That is why we say that if you have really sen sitive data, it is too naïve to rely on robots.txt to protect it from being indexed and displayed in search results.

its a robots.txt. You can send spider commands here which page/folder of your website should it crawl or which should not. If you want to disallow something than you can add it else its ok not to have it

Robots.txt is a text (not html) file you put on your site to tell search robots which pages you would like them not to visit. The Robots.txt file of a website will work when it is used as a request to specific robots to ignore directories or files specified within the Robots.txt file.
