Hi guys. I've read different posts somewhere on security issues connected with robots.txt.
It's like when you exclude some files or directory in that file, bad guys (spammers, hackers) may look at robots.txt file, see that you have excluded some files and purposely try to get in that directory.
So I was wondering if password protecting that directory will save me from this danger?
You should certainly password-protect any directories where you don't want unauthorized access - and if you do so, then you won't need to list them in your robots.txt, because they will be inaccessible for the bots anyway.
