Which is better — Meta Robot tags or robots.txt?

Recommended Posts

Robotstxt files are best for disallowing a whole section of a site, such as a category whereas a meta tag is more efficient at disallowing single files and pages. You could choose to use both a meta robots tag and a robots.

Hi Friends,

Robots.txt help to control your site indexing while Meta tags in increasing your site ranking in Google, Bing & yahoo. Both are important on-page steps to optimize your website.

Hello,


Robots. txt files are best for disallowing a whole section of a site, such as a category whereas a meta tag is more efficient at disallowing single files and pages. You could choose to use both a meta robots tag and a robots.

Use robots.txt :

To stop engines from crawling certain sections of the site

There are two important considerations when using the robots <META> tag:

robots can ignore your <META> tag. Especially malware robots that scan the web for security vulnerabilities, and email address harvesters used by spammers will pay no attention.
the NOFOLLOW directive only applies to links on this page. It's entirely likely that a robot might find the same links on some other page without a NOFOLLOW (perhaps on some other site), and so still arrives at your undesired page.

They both are not that relevant anyway to my proverb to you entirely. So I do hope we should move on later with you here. Both that things do not impact SEO that much like you want to describe it here absolutely and possibly.

Robots.
Txt documents are perfect for disallowing a whole section of a site, like a category whereas a meta tag is significantly more effective at disallowing single files and pages. You could choose to use both a meta tag and robots.

Robots.txt is better compared to meta robots tag. Robots.txt 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.
