    Robots.txt is a file used to make some instructions for search engines considering crawling and indexing pages of the website. Using it you may allow or disallow certain user-agents from crawling your website. It won't improve your rankings directly, but it surely should be used in SEO.

    Robots.txt do not help in ranking keywords. It is a text file that lists webpages which contain instructions for search engines robots. The file lists webpages that are allowed and disallowed from search engine crawling.

    Robots.txt file is very important. 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.
