What Each Line Of Command Does

User-agent: Media partners-Google

Disallow:

These codes are basically used and helpful for those bloggers who are using Google Adsense Ads on their blogs.

User – agent:*
If we see in the terms of programming then an asterisk (*) this sign basically means allowing all. But when we use this sign for the blog purpose then this means that we are inviting all kind of robots to visit our blog.

These keywords are very important for blogs because they act as a guard. They allow the search engine to search specific or general information.

“disallow:/search”
So these codes are directly added by the bloggers to the robot.txt folder which restricts the search engine robot from viewing all links which are related to keyword “search” after the domain name

“Allow: /”
This code is the main keyword in the blog platform. In case the “disallow” code has been removed by you then you can search in the engine will crawl all kind of link on your blog.

http://example.blogSpot.com/feeds,postsorderby=UPDATED
This tells the search engine to crawl a number of posts(25 max).
