Robot.txt or remove the page

    A simple question. Why we need robot.txt while we can simply remove the page from the website?

    But if you remove page normal users (not bots) will not see it.

    Its the best tool to disallow private directories/pages listing in Google. You can use it for privacy of your website. But make sure to hide those directories that you need to make private.

    A robots.txt file gives instructions to web robots about the pages the website owner doesn’t wish to be crawled. Before a search engine crawls your site, it will look at your robots.txt file as instructions on where they are allowed to crawl (visit) and index (save) on the search engine results. So, simply use the Allow query with website sitemap link and remove the link of the page from sitemap you don't want to show.
