Re: Is this robots.txt good?

The robots.txt file seem fine to me. 

 

There can be a lot of reasons as to why your website isn't properly indexed. 

 

Did you generate and submit your sitemap to Google Search Console? 

 

You should add your website to Google Search Console if you haven't done so:-
