Robots.txt Protecting Since 1994

For our next installment of “The Lighter Side of eVisibility” we have decided to honor our old and trusty friend the robots.txt file that has been around since 1994. Some people over look the use and power of the robots.txt file, but here at eVisibility we don’t. In fact, we hold the robots.txt in a very high regards and wish we could use it in real life!

FYI, this cartoon was the inspiration for our funny robots.txt t-shirts, which are now available to purchase online.
