Editing robots.txt

Web crawler software (often known as “robots”) are continually traversing the web and downloading the pages they find. If you’d like to keep them out of a part of your site, you can tell them what to avoid by setting up a robots.txt file.

By default, Nesta will respond with a blank robots.txt. If you want to add your own robots.txt instructions create a new robots.txt file and place it in the public directory.

See http://robotstxt.org for details of how to write the file.
