In my recent article, I have written about the Google Search Console setup. It helps us to manage our website coverage, URL indexing, etc.
The robots.txt file contains some lines of code which will help the search engine to crawl, index the web pages present on your website. Search engines first read the robot.txt file of your website and accordingly start indexing URLs.
We can define in a robots.txt file which pages to crawl or not to crawl. Along with it, you can easily block or restrict the page from web crawlers to index so that it will not be seen in the search result.
Here is a sample of a robots.txt file. You can change the robot.txt file as per your requirement.
User-agent: * Disallow: /wp-admin/ Disallow: /recommended/ Disallow: /tag/ Sitemap: https://scrollbucks.com/post-sitemap.xml Sitemap: https://scrollbucks.com/page-sitemap.xml
The asterisk after user-agent means that the robots.txt file applies to all the web robots.
Disallow means tells the web robots not to visit and crawl the pages.
The sitemap tells the web robot that where is your all web pages present and crawl these web pages.
