The robots.txt file is primarily used to specify which parts of your site are to be crawled by spiders or web crawlers. It can set different rules for different spiders.
Googlebot is an example of a spider. It is used by Google to crawl the Internet to get information about websites so that it knows how to rank different websites in search results.
Using a robots.txt file for your site is a web standard. Spiders look for the robots.txt file in the host directory (or root directory) of your site. This text file is always called "robots.txt". Example of a robots.txt file: https://expediten.se/robots.txt
