If you are not aware, maintaining a robots.txt file for your WordPress site (or any website) is very important for proper SEO, including Google indexing, accessibility, and more. This file should always reside on your site “root” meaning example.com/robots.txt or likewise. You can either login to SFTP and manually create the file, or use a free WordPress plugin like Yoast SEO to automatically generate the file via the WordPress backend instead. If you are not sure which rules to include in your robots.txt file there are tons of free resources and generator tools online for that. In general you should make sure to enable Google Ad (or any ad network bot) that you are part of, and then block access to all other bots on “archive” type pages that can introduce duplicate content on your domain to Google.Last modified: 29 Aug, 2015
"After being hosted on GoDaddy for years, I didn't realize how negatively it was impacting my search traffic. Soon after moving to LittleBizzy, my homepage went from page 3 on Google to #1 world-wide for my target market, and I also reached the top 3 on Google Maps, with no additional SEO work."Juliette S.
"Before moving to LittleBizzy, whenever our news website was featured on the Drudge Report, it often slowed to a crawl or even froze up during big traffic spikes. Now, that never happens anymore, and we've been able to focus on publishing more articles instead of worrying about our web hosting."Tony H.
"The research by Amazon is definitely true, because our slow WooCommerce store was bleeding sales. After LittleBizzy stabilized our performance and moved us closer to our target customers, we saw a measurable improvement in shopping cart checkouts, esp. during holidays... much better!"Mohammed H.
