    Should I create this file on my server and what should I put in it?

    Is it similar to the spider = index, follow tags?

    The Robot Exclusion Standard, also known as the Robots Exclusion Protocol or robots.txt protocol, is a convention to prevent cooperating web spiders and other web robots from accessing all or part of a website.
