    Robots.txt file is better compared to meta robots tag. Robots.txt is a text file that lists webpages which contain instructions for search engines robots. The file lists webpages that are allowed and disallowed from search engine crawling.

    Using a meta robots tag also ensures that your link equity is not being lost, with the use of the 'follow' command. Robots.txt files are best for disallowing a whole section of a site, such as a category whereas a meta tag is more efficient at disallowing single files and pages.

    In robots.txt, we inquire crawlers which page you have got to crawl and which one you have got to avoid but we do not inquire crawler to not to list those avoided pages from crawling.

    The Meta tag tells bots not to index individual files, whereas Robots.txt can be used to restrict access to entire directories.

    Meta Robots tag is much better as it helps in forcing the search engine crawlers not to index and display the hidden pages in your server. The Meta tag option tells bots not to index individual files, whereas Robots.txt can be used to restrict access to entire directories. Both are supported by all crawlers
