Hi,

I have seen some people blocking their sub domains(abc.ex.com) in their robots.txt file which was deployed in the root directory(ex.com). Is that correct?

Or robots.txt cannot be used for sub-domains?


Thanks,

The file must appear at
subdomain.example.com/robots.txt
as accessed from the web.

@phranque
Oops, I am really sorry I never meant to duplicate my posts. It just happened. The real question is how did I forget my own question? Too bad for me.

Thanks phranque for pointing out :)


Best,
