Web site owners use the /robots.txt file to give instructions about their site to web robots; this is called The Robots Exclusion Protocol.

Robots.txt generator tells the search engines which pages to access and index on your website and which pages not to index on your website. In Robots.txt we give user agent * Here User indicates the US, and the Search engine is our agent by (* Mark ) we are saying them to allow or Disallow the coding language.

For Example :

User-agent: *
Disallow: /wp-admin/
Allow: /wp-content/uploads/

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.

The robots.txt is the file which contains the pages which should not be crawled by the SE crawlers. May those pages are not as much important to rank on SE or they may have some confidential information like online payment.
