Why I Need These Files On My Website?

If you are wondering what these files do and why your online store needs them, then here is the brief out of the same.

Robots.txt

Whenever Google or any other search engines wants to rank your website, they crawl through every page of your website available online, index then and then rank your site accordingly. Robots.txt file tell these search engines which pages to index and which one to leave. This way that particular page will not be shown on the search engine pages and users will not be able to find it from there. This file is essential both for your website’s privacy and SEO.

Why would anyone want to keep their pages out of their user’s eyes. Well, there are reasons for that.

• If you have a page has duplicate content, you don’t want search engines to index it as it will hurt your SEO.

• There are pages like Thank You page, which you don’t want your user to access unless a specific action is taken.

• There are many private files which you would like to protect.

Sitemap.xml

If you want to rank easily on popular search engines, you will need an xml sitemap. It is a document which helps Google and other search engines to understand your website. It has all the URLs which you want Google to index. It is essential so that the search engines does not miss any important information while indexing, which might hurt your SEO. Other than the URLs, it also provides information like date of the last website update, frequency of changes in the website and other information.

The difference between robots.txt and sitemap.xml is that the former tells search engines what not do index and other tells what to index.
