    robots.txt is a file that tells spiders sent out from search engines which content they can index and what is allowed or disallowed. For instance in my robots.txt file I could allow every search engine except Google, or I could only allow google and disallow every other search engine. I could also restrict access to certain folders on my site for the spiders. Here is an example of a robots.txt file. This file is allowing all spiders (*) to index the site and disallowing them to index the cgi-bin directory.

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /cgi-bin/

    Just thought I would add that you place the robots.txt in your home directory where you have your home page i.e. /var/www/html/
