Support » Plugin: XML Sitemaps » Robots.txt: virtual or actual?

  • Good morning,

    I just created my sitemap using Google XML Sitemaps.
    In default settings, the option “Add sitemap URL to the virtual robots.txt file” is checked.
    Further, there is a note, ‘A real robots.txt file must NOT exist in the site directory!’
    My SEO specialists request that I have additional content in robots.txt, such as

    User-agent: Googlebot

    If I uncheck the option and add a physical robots.txt file to my site directory with that content, could this cause a conflict with Google XML Sitemaps?

    Thanks in advance
