  • YandexBot this option is used to crawl your website as Yandex search bot sees it. Our crawler will be signed as the main Yandex bot (YandexBot/3.0)
  • Googlebot this option is used to crawl your website as Google search bot sees it. Crawler will be signed as Google's web search bot (Googlebot/2.1)
  • Baiduspider - Baidu Web Search Bot
  • Mysitemapgenerator use direct identification of our crawler if you need separate control settings and an ability to manage website access
Pay attention to the features of robots.txt file processing when choosing different identification ways:
  • When choosing YandexBot, GoogleBot, Baiduspider or Mysitemapgenerator options only instructions for a particular robot are considered (User-agent: Yandex, User-agent: Googlebot, User-agent: Mysitemapgenerator respectively). General instructions of User-agent: * sections will be used only when "personal" ones are missing.
  • If you are using Standard Browser or Mysitemapgenerator - crawler will consider only instructions in Mysitemapgenerator section or general section of User-agent: *. "Personal" sections of User-agent: Yandex or User-agent: Googlebot and others are not considered.
