Webmaster Central Improves the robots.txt Tool

 5:28 pm on Aug 16, 2007 (gmt 0)

Google has made their robots.txt analysis more helpful:

We've improved Webmaster Central's robots.txt analysis tool to recognize sitemap declarations and relative urls. Earlier versions weren't aware of sitemaps at all, and understood only absolute URLs...Reporting is better, too. You'll now be told of multiple problems per line if they exist, unlike earlier versions which only reported the first problem encountered...

The blog post also mentions Google's new support for the X-Robots-Tag [webmasterworld.com] we covered in July.

This is pretty good stuff. I've never seen such detail in any robots.txt tool before. Especially if you have a complex robots.txt file, give it a try.
