How to Enable Custom Robots file in Blogger blog with Pictures

Hello friends welcome to the Techtspot Blog, today I will show you how to enable a custom Robots.txt file and robots header tags in the Blogger blog with pictures.
Enable Custom Robots file in Blogger

What is the Robots.txt file?

Robots.txt file tells the crawler which pages, posts, products, and other URLs they want to crawl to index in the search engines result page (SERP).

Why we need to enable a custom robots.txt file and robots header tags in the blog?

When we are creating a blog, website, and online store and we upload some content on it then we are adding our online asset to the search engine console or Webmaster tools, that help us to crawl or index our pages, posts, products, and all URLs in the search engines like - Bing, Qwant, Google, Duckduckgo, Startpage, etc..., and without robots.txt file our all content URLs (unwanted & useless URLs) will be index in the search engine without any restriction.

Now I give you some reasons to enable the robots.txt file in your blog or website, let's see some points >>
# we don't want to index some of our pages or post like we are working on a particular page or post to improve the design.
# we don't want to index some specific page in the search engine, like the DEMO page, testing pages, WP-ADMIN page, etc... 
# we don't want to index our blog Label or Category URL, like -
> mydomainname.com/lable/mobile-phone
> mydomainname.com/category /mobile-games

Now you will understand how the robots.txt file help our online assets (blog, website, online store) be crawled and indexed in the search engine and the main thing is every crawler have their time to spend in every blog or website then they are automatically redirected or jump to another blog or website so in the particular time frame, the crawler crawls the maximum pages or posts URLs and the visit another website or blog. 

But if our website or blog has a lot of pages, posts, and product URLs then the crawler cannot crawl the whole website or blog so we are enabling the robots.txt file in our blog, website, and online store to tell the crawler which URLs they want to crawls and index, For Example:-
you can visit some given URL in your web browser then you can see the settings of the robots.txt file.
https://facebook.com/robots.txt
https://www.techtspot.com/robots.txt

Now in the Blogger platform, the blog by default crawl all content URLs in the search engine results page (SERP), so here we are enabling custom robots txt file and header tag to tell all search engines how they can crawl & index our blog in their SERP.

Custom robots.txt file explanation:-
#User-agent: Mediapartners-Google:- this for google to Provide better ads on blogger blog.
#User-agent: *:- this means our blogger blog or website can crawl all search engines. It means visible to all search engines.
#Disallow: /search:- this line tells all search engines do not crawl this post who related /search post and pages.
#Allow: /:- this line tells all search engines to crawl and Allow homepage.
#Sitemap:- we add our Blogger blog sitemap, if you don't know what is sitemap I just explain the sitemap in another post you can visit and check the post.

Custom robots header tag explanation:-
#All:- it crawls all Blogger blog posts and pages and this is enabled by default.
#noindex:- this option tells all search engines to not index Blogger blog pages and post in the search area.
#nofollow:- it tells not to follow the links on the pages.
#none:- it means we have selected both noindex, nofollow.
#noarchive:- this option can remove the cache link from search results.
#nosnippet:- this option can remove a snippet of the Blogger blog post and pages.
#noodp:- this option can not allow search engines to use metadata from the DMOZ directory.
#notranslate:- this option tells Spiders not to allow to translate the Blogger blog post and pages.
#noimageindex:- this option can not allow to index images into all search engines.

Now we are going to blogger blog and do these configurations in our blog, now let's start.

These are the Following Steps:-
Step 1First go to the Blogger blog and click the Setting option, here we scroll down and find the Crawlers and indexing section then we On the button for the Enable custom robots.txt option.

  7. yes, A robots.txt file gives instructions to web robots about the pages the website owner doesn’t wish to be ‘crawled’. For instance, if you didn’t want your images to be listed by Google and other search engines, you’d block them using your robots.txt file.
