Robots.txt question

Hi,

could you tell me if my robots.txt is ok? Is there anything missing?

That looks fine to me but I'd also like to disallow the following: 

 

Disallow: /*.CVS

Disallow: /*.Zip$

Disallow: /composer.json

Disallow: /composer.lock

Hi @jakbau

 

Actually your robots.txt needs some improvement.

 

1) Don't disallow js and css files as you will get an error from Google stating that it can't reach the files. It may also negatively affect your rankings (according to Google).

 

2) (recommended) It's better to use canonical tags for sorting/filtering options rather that block such URLs in robots.txt.
