    Robot.txt is generally used to stop web crawlers or spiders crawl websites. Website owners use it where they specifically don’t want their page to be crawled by crawlers. This is also known as Robots Exclusion Protocol.

    The most common usage of Robots.txt is to ban crawlers from visiting private folders or content that gives them no additional information. This is done primarily in order to save the crawler’s time: bots crawl on a budget – if you ensure that it doesn’t waste time on unnecessary content, it will crawl your site deeper and quicker.

    Some people choose to save bandwidth and allow access to only those crawlers they care about (e.g. Google, Yahoo, and MSN).
