Robots.txt is a notepad file which makes to prevent any search engine robot/spider/bot to crawl a domain or its any part(Pages). The Website owners make this file when they want to hide any information from the search engine like Google, Bing, Yandex, Baidu etc. If you are also a website owner and want to prevent search engine to come into your website then make robots.txt file and upload it on public_html folder.

How to Start a Robots.txt file:

To Prevent a Domain for all Search Engine Bot

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

Here User-agent command is used to show search engine bot name and * is for all the search engine bot present in the whole World. Disallow command is for preventing robots to crawl and index the website and / is for the main domain.

To Prevent a Domain for a Specific Search Engine like Google

User-agent: Googlebot
Disallow: /

Note: In front of user-agent always type the robots name of any search engine. For example: Yahoo robots name is slurk so that type slurk not Yahoo. To know the Bot name of some popular search engine visit https://www.keycdn.com/blog/web-crawlers/

To Prevent any page in Domain

User-agent: *
Disallow: /xyz/
Disallow: /xyz if the page don't have any subpages.

To prevent any page under any category or folder

User-agent: *
Disallow: /categery/xyz.html

To Delay Crawling of any search engine

Note: Allow command is only applying for Googlebot.

Thus, you can disallow many pages, folders and catageries in your website by using the robots.txt file. Mainly it is used to prevent indexing of that matter which can penalize your website on the search engine.
