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

Last updated: August 6, 2021

A robots.txt checker that doesn't take into account your entire site's content is borderline useless.

Without any context, a robots.txt checker can only check whether you have any syntax mistakes or whether you're using deprecated directives such as robots.txt noindex.

In this case, you wouldn't learn about the full scope of how your robots.txt affects your website. Therefore, we strongly recommend to fully crawl your site and then analyze the robots.txt, with the site's complete content inventory in mind.
