ContentKing has always kept an eye on your website’s most important file: robots.txt.

Now we’re taking it a step further with our expanded robots.txt monitoring! Our expanded robots.txt monitoring makes it easier to navigate, view, and analyze your robots.txt files with:

  • Extensive change tracking of robots.txt
  • HTTP headers for any robots.txt versions
  • Ability to download full response
  • Log file analysis for robots.txt

And not to mention, we made it look pretty good too! Our new redesign makes comparing different robots.txt versions a breeze.

Travel back in time and see all versions of robots.txt

Quickly and easily see all changes that have happened in your robots.txt in one place.

See HTTP headers for any robots.txt version

Ever wondered what the exact response was for your robots.txt? Or are you seeing two alternating versions of your robots.txt and need to investigate?

Check the HTTP headers for any robots.txt version to see:

  • the headers of the HTTP request that we sent
  • the headers of the HTTP response that we received
