      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).

      robot.txt is text file for giving direction to crawlers.
      allow – in syntax if we write allow then it will start crawling
      disallow- in syntax if we write disallow then it will not crawl that file.

      The robots.txt file is primarily used to specify which parts of your website should be crawled by spiders or web crawlers. It can specify different rules for different spiders.

      Googlebot is an example of a spider. It’s deployed by Google to crawl the Internet and record information about websites so it knows how high to rank different websites in search results.

      Using a robots.txt file with your website is a web standard. Spiders look for the robots.txt file in the host directory (or main folder) of your website.

      A robots.txt file notifies search engine crawlers which URLs on your site they can access. This is mostly intended to prevent your site from becoming overburdened with requests; it is not a strategy for keeping a web page out of Google. You should use noindex or password-protect a web page to keep it out of Google’s index. A robots.txt file is used to regulate crawler traffic to your site and, depending on the file type, to keep a file off Google.
