Why This Recipe Works

Your robots.txt file tells search engine crawlers which pages or files the crawler can or can’t request from your site.


  • One website
  • One robots.txt file
  • One nerd to edit the file


  1. Make sure you have a website.
  2. Get access to your robots.txt file (multiple options available).
  3. Modify that thing to make sure search engine crawlers crawl what they should and don’t crawl what they shouldn’t.
