Robots.txt checker: is your robots.txt set up correctly?

Last updated: April 13, 2021

Context is king for a robots.txt checker

A robots.txt checker is only as good as the context you pass along with the robots.txt.

Without context, a robots.txt checker would only be able to check whether you have any syntax mistakes or whether you’re using deprecated directives such as robots.txt noindex.

You wouldn’t know about all website URLs and sections of your site that your robots.txt is affecting. Therefore, we strongly recommend fully crawling your site and then analyzing the robots.txt, with the site’s information architecture in mind.
