    Default Robots.txt

    What is the robots.txt file? What does it do? Do I need it?

    No, that's not it. I was reading about the robots.txt file on Google, and was wondering if I need it on my site? It's NOT there yet.

    You only really NEED it if you want to keep the robots out of certain areas of your site. Like admin areas or ssl areas etc etc, or password protected pages and so on.
