  • It’s in the root of your hosting. You can connect the hosting via FTP and find it in the root folder. You can edit it by text editor e.g. notepad.

    The best place to add this meta is where? Before or after other meta tags? Thanks, Sean

    Robots meta tag is added in the head section of your theme. Robots.txt file is added to your root directory of your hosting account.

    Please bare with me, I’m new to this. I have access to all my files but am not sure what file under root I would go into to add the robots.txt file. My hosting is through Host Gator if that helps the answer at all. Thanks, Sean

    the “public_html” is the root folder of hostgator.

    Thank you. I’ll look at it there and see what I can do. Hopfully not screw anything up;) thanks, Sean
