Could someone kindly post a sample robots.txt file that would encourage all the spiders?   and then just as a sample, a second file that would exclude one particular page named, say, xyz.html

thanks

Hi linque -

The following allows all robots to visit all files because the wildcard "*" specifies all robots.

User-agent: *
Disallow:

This one bars all robots from the the images directory.

User-agent: *
Disallow: /images/

This one bars googlebot from getting at the xyz.html file.

User-agent: googlebot
Disallow: xyz.html
