I personally don't include tags, categories and website/blog's archive.September 3, 2012 at 6:28 am #33697
Robot.txt files are very important for your website because in these files you allow or disallow search engines that which page it should read and which not.September 4, 2012 at 1:19 am #33698
I do not edit the robot txt file myself as I use Thesis to noindex pages and nofollow.. It is all in the settings and makes it very easy. I do not index tags and sometimes categories (as Rancid said also) because there are just too many tags and there is nothing there anyway. I like to index all pages and posts. Sometimes I nofollow links to about me pages or privacy policies as they are not content I want showing in the search engines.October 22, 2012 at 3:40 am #33699
Internal search pages can be blocked from search engines to be crawled. You can use this coding in robots.txt to block search pages.January 24, 2013 at 6:21 am #33700
Robot.txt files tell your instructions to a search engine robot. A â€˜robots.txtâ€™ file helps you tell the search engine spiders which files to crawl or which files to overlook.February 4, 2013 at 5:38 am #33701
Robot.txt is an on-page SEO technique and it is basically used to allow for the web robots also known as the web wanderers, crawlers or spiders. It is a program that traverses the website automatically and this helps the popular search engine like Google to index the website and its content.April 25, 2013 at 11:39 am #33702
The robots.txt file tells search engines which directories to crawl and which not to. You can use it to block crawlers from looking at your image directory if you don't want your images showing up on Google search.Be careful not to use this to try and block people from directories you want to keep secret. Anyone can view you robots.txt file. Make sure you password protect directories that need to be secured.
