do I need to upload a file for this or is this already integrated into XF ?
this does not show on my forum when I check this with my URL..... which is the reason I am asking how and where I put up this file onto my website....wondering why this file is not in XF by default ?

No, a robots.txt file will not do that... it will keep out irrelevant content from Google that Google may punish you for. I do not use one for XF forums... its not needed.ok, so you are saying having this file installed (exactly the same one as here at XF) will improve my Google ranking or rank my site higher in search-results?
Do you feel this is still the case ?When Google started to redo its search, my website began to slowly fall in the ranks. I was once on the first page of results and now I can go to page 10 and I still don't show up! Every other search engine shows me on the first page.
