Benefits of Creating a Custom robots.txt File
By creating a robots.txt file for your site, you can instruct the Google search engine about which pages you want to display as search results and also specify the pages you want to prevent from being crawled and indexed.
You may want to prevent specific pages from your site and block search engine crawlers from accessing them.
Add Disallow: /yourpage.html to your robots.txt file and send a notice of the new code update. Be sure to replace yourpage.html with the URL of the page(s) you want to block from indexing before sending.
