Southport SEO Tip 36


Are you using a robots.txt file to help the Search Engines index your website?

Using a robots.txt allows you to specify which files and folders you want the Search Engines to index. Perhaps you don’t want your images or your templates to be indexed. This file is one of the first files that a search engine Spider looks for when it visits your site, so you can help get more pages indexed, by making it easier for the spider to find your content. It’s important to understand how to use the robots.txt file, as getting it wrong could mean that you disallow the search engine spiders, and your site doesn’t get indexed or disappears from the SERPS altogether.
