Web site owners use the /robots.txt file to give instructions about their site to web robots; this is called The Robots Exclusion Protocol.
Using a robots.txt file and with a disallow direction, we can restrict bots or search engine crawling program from websites and or from certain folders and files.

The robots exclusion standard, also known as the robots exclusion protocol or simply robots.txt, is a standard used by websites to communicate with web crawlers and other web robots. The standard specifies how to inform the web robot about which areas of the website should not be processed or scanned.

A robots.txt file gives instructions to web robots about the pages the website owner doesn’t wish to be ‘crawled’. For instance, if you didn’t want your images to be listed by Google and other search engines, you’d block them using your robots.txt file.

Before a search engine crawls your site, it will look at your robots.txt file as instructions on where they are allowed to crawl and index on the search engine results. Robots.txt files are useful: If you want search engines to ignore any duplicate pages on your website.

Robots.txt is a text file created by webmasters that instruct web robots how to crawl pages in their website. This file also indicates whether the pages of their website should be crawled or not. The crawl instructions are “allowing” or “disallowing” which are specified by user agents.
