I was looking thru my error log file and found lots of messages referencing these two files? Do I really need these? If I do, where can I go to learn more about them? Thanks.

Robots.txt for sure....

Favicon is optional but cool

Why do I need robots.txt? What does it do? Do you have a sample code of a typical file?

Thanks. Has it hurt my site not having the robots file?

Not a big problem, but good practice. Check out other threads on this board for robots to disallow. Lots of great stuff here.
