I installed Google XML Sitemaps and it added a robots.txt that looks like this:
# BEGIN XML-SITEMAP-PLUGIN
# END XML-SITEMAP-PLUGIN
So it sends the robots to the sitemap, which I’ve set to contain only the pages I want crawled. I see a lot of discussion around the web about how important it is to add directions to the robots.txt file to give direction to the spiders. But since robots.txt directs them to the sitemap, and it has only the pages I want crawled, am I done?
