When a website with a Robots.txt file all the search engines crawlers come to the domain and check for allowed URLs that need to be indexed. If you have no idea about the robots.txt file it is a simple text file with a txt extension in which we need to define the URLs of the website that needs to be crawled or not to be crawled by adding a few lines of code.


In WordPress, there are famous SEO plugins Yoast and Rank Math which create robots.txt files by default for you but if you have no installation of these plugins just make a file with txt extension and paste the above lines of code with custom URLs and paste in your website root directory.
