A properly working sitemap and a robots.txt file helps Google find your blog content.
A sitemap is a file in your blogging website. It tells Google and other search engines about new or changed pages on your website.
A robots.txt file consists of one or more rules. Each rule blocks (or or allows) access for Google and other search engines to a specified file path in that website.
I know it’s getting too technical and confusing. Don’t worry you need not to create anything yourself. In case your website is running on WordPress then you just have to add Yoast SEO plugin and you are good to go.
